*This is very much a beta build and I am sure improvements will be needed, if beta builds are not your thing please give it a little time. What works for me does not always work for everyone else.*
Inspired by the awesome Sisyphus Table by Bruce Shapiro, http://www.sisyphus-industries.com/, Zen gardens that my mom used to love, and the crazy CoreXY belting system.
This is my attempt at an easily sourced automated Zen Table.
Amazing patterns are easily possible by using Sandify, https://github.com/jeffeb3/sandify, This table would be nothing without this tool!

You can also generate patterns with your CAM software, All sorts of things can be done with a DXF and CAM. Cursive text looks great, and can score you some points with that special someone that thought you forgot about them while you were building this table…
Karl’s Way allow for some custom vector graphics to be easily drawn. Here in the Forum.
This is running coreXY belting and requires homing Y before X, as set in the firmware. You need two endstops wired Normally Closed on the X and Y. If you are facing the two steppers and looking down at them, the left one should be plugged into X the right one into Y, both plugs facing the same direction, if it does not move correctly, power down unplug and flip them both over. It is more confusing then the regular Cartesian troubleshooting.
Beta firmware until my new table is finished. 16T GT2 pulleys.
