Thanks for the setting info. My machine can reach the top speed you have used without a problem.  My ways are THK ball ways that are very smooth in operation. My machine is an unusual configuration, X bolted onto a 200 lb cast iron table. Z column riding on the X way saddle, Y traveling on the Z column saddle. It's like a boring mill.  So for small objects it can have a very rigid work envelope. A big work envelope gets shaky at the Z and Y extremes.

mine is one of those Chinese 30x40 routers.  I call it the noodle router because of all the flex, but you know, new motors, and electronics, its a fun little toy.  I have some supported rails and bearings to stiffen up the Y, just gotta take the time to modify the machine and install them.

Nice work !

that is the idea, but it needs a base and hole for the shifter. 
My dad restored a VW camper bus that is red and white.  He is in the middle of doing a bug that will be blue.  So looks like I get to add onto the design.  Which I did not do, its a thingiverse model.  Was just fun to print.

Can you please tell us more about the electronics you use for the extruder temperature control. Did you use something like this one?
