3D Cartesian axis, take 1

With a fair bit of help from Ash, I've combined the Meccano, FDM and bolts approaches to come up with a functional 3D Cartesian axis. No end-stops yet, and haven't powered all motors simultaneously yet. But definitely all headed in the right direction. The top stage sits on 4x M6 150mm bright plated bolts and there's quite a bit of polycaprolactone involved:

Please excuse the mess in the background. We're still recovering from giftmass and my Brother-in-law seems to have neglected to take Rebecca or Laura back with him. They are taking an interest in Uncle Vik's experiments and are making references to "Dexter's Lab", whatever that might be. For reasons I fail to understand this involves them stealthily turning the machine on while vital parts are not in place, or are hardwired to inopportune settings.

Vik :v)

Ahah, all is explained.

Vik :v)
