Calculate corexy cube

Hello fellow makers,

I’m in the process of designing a new printer with a corexy motion and was wondering how to calculate the cube size needed for a given build plate?


I imagine you would want to work with your print head and work outwards. Figure out how much clearance you need to get the extruder to the edges of your bed. Is there enough room for your z rails/rods and lead screws?

Less important but still something to consider: where are putting the power supply and controller? Underneath, above, to the side? If they are contained in the frame, know what components you plan to use and plan around them, too.

That is what I initially was going to do, but thought that there was another way to do it.
Well, back to cad and continue with project.

Thank you for ur answer.
