LAYZOR - DIY full K40 conversion

Hi all,

I am currently working on a conversion from the K40 to an actual useful machine. Key here is minimal investment.

I've worked on the design for a month or so, and now that the parts are coming in, I am planning to log the build here.

People have told me it looks a lot like the 2.0x (or whatever it is called ;-) ). Actually that is how I found this site. In the mean time I've looked at the cad file and I don't really think there's that much in common other than the overall look. Which is not surprising since it looks pretty generic. Anyway I just wanted to say it is a 100% new design, not really based off anything, except some google images for inspiration.

I also have a blog in which I write full articles, but I guess I'll post some more ongoing pictures here as I am building it.

There are already 3 blog posts about it, which you can find here:

Currently I am building the frame.
