Welcome to RepRap, Redwizard!
The RedBot looks like it has great potential. A few 2D sheets of wood and some fixit blocks looks just as rigid and looks much quicker to assemble than a bunch of cross-braces and their associated nuts and bolts. Perhaps this line of development will, someday, lead to RepStraps that take less than 9 months to put together :-).
What do you think about the relative merits of these drive trains:
- "X axis riding on Y axis" (Darwin) vs.
- "Both X and Y axis bolted directly to the rigid frame" (Columbus)
