I was thinking alu extrusion too. maybe even a gear lock design to help stabilize. you still use the conduit for the middle z, roller setup. but run it all on 2040 or 2060 extrusion with a tooth gear roller instead of the belt driven setup. maybe smaller diameter pipe for the z drive to shrink down the z package and give a little more build volume.
