New (old dude) to cnc stuff and have been looking at diy systems for cutting out nested plywood parts from 4x8. I think I have read about Every thread on the net in the past couple months.
The hinged wall frame and compact nature of the maslow is appealing. The corner issues not as much. Some of the other options out there sound good until you research them. I would build a steel frame as I have plenty of square stock.
So my question, in line with some of the gantry mods out there… as many have moved to a 12’ top bar to increase corner accuracy, could you use the same wider top bar for a linear bearing and motor towards a hybrid system? Keeping a Maslow type sled which rides on the material. The gantry could have a 3-4’ width triangulated arm to add rigidity. Hinged to allow raising.
Your patience is appreciated, lol
