Documentation for the [Clank-LZ](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/clank-lz) variant, that was used for HTMAA 2020 has been moved into a stable, standalone project [here](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/clank-lz).

## Clank-CZ
## [Clank-FXY](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/clank-fxy)
This is a larger machine, **256x256x128mm**, that uses a taller frame and a cantelivered bed that moves in the Z direction. This platform would be appropriate for jobs with large Z works spaces, i.e. 3D Printing, but also suited for CNC Milling of circuits, molds, components etc.

## Clank-Stretch
## [Clank-Stretch](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/clank-stretch)
A wide & thin aspect ratio, clank-stretch uses a small, short-throw z-axis. Appropriate for knife cutting, pen plotting, sheet milling, pick-and-placing, etc.

making clank into a 3d printer
## 2021 04 27
Taking Clank-CZ apart today, as clank-fxy is here. Some notes / RIP:
- bed assembly is 2770g
- x-span / rail assembly (with YL, YR, X) is 2605g
## 2021 02 18
I am building a 'stretch' clank - this is ~ 1024 x 512mm of area: a big flat thing. Mostly because I want to prototype new motion controllers and a simple 2D machine is great for that, and also because I am trying to transition Clank-CZ into a kind of printing workhorse.
