Now in 3D (Part 2)

This is part two of my build progress. See part one here.
Last time I finished the X-Axis. Next up is the Y-Axis, which includes the frame.
The frame is the first part to give me any real trouble. I had to adjust the backplate on the bottom of the frame three times, mainly because I kept not paying close enough attention each time I changed it. Eventually I got it right…

This last photo is my current progress. I still have all of the electronics to wire up, followed by testing and calibration. I have to say that so far assembly has gone quite smoothly. A few spots where things fit a bit tight, but nothing that a little appropriately-placed squeezing couldn’t fix. I also need to take the time to stop at the hardware store for my glass.
More to come…
