Hi, so i have finally got a place to set up my maslow but i cant set it up to its full length of 10ft, but i can get 6ft. (4x4 workspace)
Has anyone built a half sized maslow before? Im looking for dimensions and possibly any other things i may have to readjust for it down the line.
For the dimensions i was thinking of any of the lengthy horizontal beams i would just reduce to 6ft.
If anyone already has some adjusted dimensions id appreciate it as it will help me when purchasing materials.
I doubt you will find someone with the exact measurements you need.
My suggestion would be to take the standard frame and scale all dimensions down till the ‘top beam motor distance with sprockets and space to put on the chains’ is maxed out with your longest wall.
I don’t know what the usable cutting area will be, but think it will be more rectangular (landscape) than square.
What is the height (ceiling) usable?
Edit: Feel free to keep asking. I found this the most helpful Forum ever.
Edit2: I tried as good as it goes with beer but the Friends here will correct me. Scaled my ~ 11.5 top frame to ~6ft and got a ‘sheet’ of ~ 4.2 x 2.1.
Now take of the ‘issue zones like low corners, top middle and a bit of top corners’ and reduce by the amount you need for accuracy depending on what you want to make.
You could be better off with a horizontal machine. Will not name them, because I don’t get money from them, but PM I might.
