I tend to 'work out' from the Z-axis, towards the edges - this way I can keep track of where I need extra offsets (length of travel != length of gantry). Here's the layout with the Z-and-X axis group moved around to the extents.

And the layout as representative of a real machine...

This is all just loosely blocked out, in this stage I am really trying to get good numbers for the lengths of all of the axis, etc. Now I'll get into the actual Axis detailing.

I'm using his Chamferrail Generator in Rhino and Grasshopper - included in this repo under /cad/axis-generator/ . Now that I have my axis lengths laid out, I'll generate the axis, and go through the process of milling them. I'll do this first on the X Axis and circle back to make any adjustments to the system I see fit!

Use Grasshopper to adjust the parameters - you'll find them all on the left. Things I adjusted were:
- Make sure 'Output Geometry Type' is set to 3D

Now I use the 'bake' command to pull the geometry out of grasshopper and into Rhino.

I took this geometry and used 'copy to clipboard' in rhino (just type the command) and pasted it over into my layout, which I renamed '-detail'.
