I know this is a commercial machine but there are some nice ideas here for a 3 axis machine:


This for example on page 7:

Although some of the ideas are already found in machines built by members:
Raised X rails - as seen many machines on this site
Linear rails onto ground surfaces - with small side locator pins (as fvfdrums rails)
Driven through centre of gravity, twin ballscrew, even on Z axis (as Sylavski)
Box in box Z axis and double rail Y axis (as Jonathan's machine)

Got me thinking about a new machine . . . :whistle:
