Just stumbled across a delta design kind of like I was envisioning…except they’re using open builds wheels with multiple pieces of conduit together to create a groove for them to run in instead of the MPCNC style roller I was picturing:

And here’s the build of it I found that led me to it:

Incidentally I found it by following the link on the vicious homepage to the johnbiehler.com blog about building a MPCNC who mentioned his friend who had built a MPCNC and convinced him to try one…the conduit delta is being built by that friend.

The bundle of 4 EMT pieces in each corner solves the problem I had been thinking about in regards to rigidity…but means the simpler MPCNC style roller woudln’t work without more modifications..
