for the router it is something like 550 mm x 1100mm
for hot wire cutting it is 450 x 1000 x 400 mm
but the towers can be moved closer to each other down to 100 mm,
that gives extreme possible
angles for the wire

this first video the machine is running 75 mm / minute
we ( Joergen) have now made it run 600 mm / minute without loosing steps.
that gives new possibilities .
