    That should fit in a Bigbox with a linear rail I guess :)

    Does Core XY mean that those speeds / accelerations can be achieved with Nema 17 ?

    I'm thinking, if those are NEMA 17 then the Duet is probably not going to be able to microstep fast enough (two axes moving simultaneously, plus perhaps Z compensation) so it must be doing chunky steps....

    It can and does move quickly on nema 17s. There is very little weight on the motion system.

    OMG, do want!
    If you continue at this pace, there will be a point where the 10 motor channels of a Duet+Duex5 are not enough...

    We already extended it to 12 motors maximum, because more than one user found 10 motors insufficient. One user is already planning to add a 13th motor.

    That is good news, given the 4-head change system the guys showed off on Twitter recently I might put that to good use. Can't wait!

    I would just be happy with a replacement for my BB3D gantry, and the brains... something newer, faster, and maybe removing end switches for the new steppers that the PRUSA I3 is using now

    Feels like... I just want the electrical hardware of the i3... so its all basicly tuned to the motors already :D

    Also, looking at the machine, I take it we're finaly all in agreement putting the electronics ON THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE should have stopped back with the T-o-M?

    Whatever the i3 does it's based on the same information as the Duet: the information from the TMC stepper drivers (albeit not exactly the same ones, the Duet's drivers deliver power more efficiently with less heating!).

    However once you're used to web browser real time control and parameterisation and / or once you're into a large touchscreen, you'll never give 8-bit a thought again. :D

    Same here, that looks too yummy, can't wait to get my hands on that. Hope the frame will also be offered in darker anodized flavours and smoked glass for the backplate.
