I would like to convert my Maslow to operate in the more conventional x - y movement using linear bearings instead of the V configuration used in the standard model.
The same motors, chain, and sprockets would remain, but in a different location. The X motor (horizontal movement) would be fixed while the Y motor (vertical movement) would move as the X axis moved requiring a device to support the power wire to the motor and encoder.
All of the movements are either vertical or horizontal eliminating the need for cutting any type of curve. The accuracy necessary is approximately 0.10 inches if you can even call that accuracy.
What would be necessary to change the firmware to accomplish the above?
