Just wondering if anyone has extended the Y Axis on their longmill.
I have a few projects in mind where it would be an advantage to have the Y axis reach to 48". I won’t able to go diagonal and would prefer not to tile. I read the post Things to consider when making a longer LongMill | Sienci Labs and I have an idea of the changes and limitations. It seems the l main caveat to going longer on the Y is whip on the lead screws.
If my math is correct adding 18" would require a 1487mm lead screw and 1500mm appears to be commonly available. I should be able to get longer 2x2 angle locally, and either 3d print or purchase from sienci the additional middle feet and drag chain, and I could use the extra wiring available on the left y axis motor to patch in an extension on the z axis motor cable. Am I missing anything?
Any chance of an official 30x48 Sienci upgrade kit?
Oh, I do own a LongMill 30x30 v4 bought Dec 2020. Just want to go a little longer
