Tools are the transformers which couple our imagination to reality. CoreXY provides a fundamental building block of many computerized fabrication tools - cartesian motion - in a simple and adaptable format.
CoreXY is a technique, not an implementation. We sketch the concept and give a few examples as a platform that enables you to build new tools that are as unique as your ideas.
Fast. We believe in speed. CoreXY's (mostly) parallel kinematics mean that the motors, typically the largest source of inertia on a DIY-grade stage, are stationary. This permits rapid accelerations.
Simple. CoreXY can be implemented with only three structural plates, all of which can nest during fabrication.
Flexible. Whether your medium is fabric or aluminum, the principle behind CoreXY permits motion stages to be rendered in a variety of materials and a wide range of sizes.
