Stupid idea or not??

I'm in the making of magnetic effector arms. So I taught that why not go all the way...

The main reason for this contraption is to get less delta effector offset and wide arm spacing for stability reason.

The effector offset is reduced with ~30% (31 to 21mm)
The arm spacing is increased with ~33% (45 to 60mm)

Any taught??

Looks ok, but you should push that simulation out to the edge of your print bed, that layout may restrict your maximum build diameter, but that shouldn't be an issue if you're building a small machine.
