    are you going to be putting some sort of armature inside the gantry to prevent droop and to support the Betty?

    yes, not sure what kind of armature. may a kind of wood or aluminium profile. For the conection between teh Betty and the Augira I'm thinking about an acrylic plate with walkway grid on it.
    But first I've to finished the template…;)

    Some of the curved shapes are really tiny… maybe to small.
