When the crawlbot was in its earliest of stages, they were contemplating having the bot actually crawl across the sheet. what you would end up with is a machine that can use a 4×8 price of stock but only cut about 40-42″ to the inside of the sheet. they eventually scratched that idea and went with the belt driven design that works quite similar in many respects but really needs a table to be effective. when they finalized the design I was very disappointed to see the high price tag. I’m sure we can keep the whole build under 750, but its all gonna come down to the table side of things. And keeping the table true.
