This is my chance to do a proper job aligning, leveling and improving this machine. From previous set-ups I’ve learnt a lot about what is wrong with the design. Heres a load of snaps showing the awkward assembly of the projector on two steel rails that just bolt to the top of the main frame. This part of the machine has to be assembled section by section as the machine screw location tolerances are high so its impossible to bolt together if you are also lifting/wriggling it around.
This could be improved by a new frame that spreads out more and includes screw-jacks to dampen/support the circular rails that the lens and camera move on, which wobbles like fuck, even when all locked off.
