making a small maslow isn’t that hard, others have shrunk it a bit anyway.
until you get really small, you don’t even have to worry about shrinkin the
The problem is that you don’t save much in terms ofthe vertical and horizontal
offsets of the motors from the corners of your work area.
If you play around with the v-plotter software (http://lang.hm/maslow/) you can
tweak the dimensions and see how far down from the motors you have to be to have
your workpiece to be in the white area.
Now, when you start changing motors, you have to fiddle with some more
parameters (min and max tensions), you may also need to fiddle with the min step
size if you are using different encoders
weaker motors will have lower max tensions, so the blue area near the top will
dip down more.
If the encoders don’t give you enough resolution then you will have another band
of dark blue at the top that is a no-go region due to accuracy rather than chain
If you want to tell me what sizes you are talking about, I can produce various
