This is just Beta page. My point is figure out if this would be possible fund like Base48 project or not.

Plan and features

1, Laser cutted frame - MDS should be enough. Easy to assemble
2, Some 3d printed parts
3, Rod based linear movements
4, Take some premade working solution 
5, Simple spindle for PCB with good bearing (We have big shapeko for other things)
6, Nema17 + arduino (Cheap + easy to maintain)
7, Small working area

So far done
