Ianus is born

Ianus is born (well the prototype test bed is at least)

Ianus is a dual head Cartesian with Independent Z axes on a common X and common Y platform.

The Y axis is the worktable which is full width and slides backwards and forwards on the bed frame.

The X axis is mounted to the head of the gantry and slides full width.

The independent Z axes are mounted to the X axis on the gantry one per side initially, though this could be modified to present more independent Z axes ie 4.

The tubes and fittings I wanted have arrived and I have assembled them to trial the ideas. I bought the pipe and clamps from they are located in Normanton, West Yorkshire, UK
