Ballscrew motion - X axis completed

X Axis Ballscrew mounted in support and rails attached.

Underside of X axis.

Completed X Axis with 20mm T-slot Guides for alignment of Extruder / head / etc.
This provides about 32cm of build-bed coverage and only slightly less with a dual extruder design. 

Just managed to also get the Y Axis bed supports drilled, these will allow a flexible build-bed size and an easy way to fix and remove it.

My first bed on this design will be Glass, so I want some replacements to swap-out quickly.

Complete mechanical assembly over the weekend, I will be getting onto the electronics next week hopefully.

Rich.
