machine looks great but got some basic questions for you.
I'm trying to do something similar (machining large molds and plugs)

-How did you picked up the required 10x12x4' machine work area?
except for aircraft part, I really cannot find any part enough large to require this size
Even if a part was big enough, with 5 axis it would be quite easy to create 2 molds to join together.

-do you have a cost breakdown somewhere you can share?

-why did you went with the "X axis motion" legs moving instead of fixed?
(aka why classic gantry over overhead gantry style)

thanks, math
