So in the Engineering Block Program at my high school my friend and I are building a larger CoreXY printer. Here's the first picture.

All I can say is that Aluminum Extrusion is a tank. This frame weighs 30 lbs right now, which is honestly lighter than I expected. Let me know if there's any major problems you see with the design.

It's definitely over-built- I don't think you need any of the corner braces or associated hardware, but hey, there's no kill like overkill.

You could add some brackets in the bottom horizontal plane. It has to be perfect 90°.

Yeah overkill was kind of the plan. We hit the jackpot, all of this material was in the shop already. We haven't bought a single part yet.
