he really needs to move away from the whole idea of moving the XY bed. He should turn the printer upside down and use the rack/pinion to move the head and not the bed. the whole reason all printers do this is because to save space, to move an printbed of 200mm, you need to have free space in all direction, this means the inner space has to be at least 40cmx40cm + framing/hardware = +/-50cm for printer area of 20cm. while other printers like makerbot one use the head for the XY and has a greater printarea to size ratio. It looks better than the earlier version of Irapid, but still... not my cup of tea :). wish him all the best
