Actually I just realized that due to my 2’x2′ table, the resulting build size is around 13″. This would cause 4 setups per side on my 46″ part. Starting to look not feasible.

This leads me to a question.. How much of a pain is it to go from small build size to large. I imagine it requires unscrewing feet, one side of the belts on the expanding axis, then put in new tubing, screw it down to new surface. I guess the real question is, How much will this mess with your setup, like belt tension and such. Is it less than an hour to have everything working again?

(that was more than one question, Lol)
