    I purchased the Piranha FX a few months ago and love it EXCEPT the cutting area is to small. Has anyone here built a larger (2'X4") using the motors, controllers etc. form the piranha?

    Remember you are adding weight to the gantry so the Y axis motor would need to be able to handle the additional weight and over come and friction from larger bearings needed to handle the larger size. You will also be adding a longer screw on the X axis which will add to the resistance it needs to over come and possibly addition weight from the Z axis because you will probably want to add to the Z axis height so there will be more weight add for the additional size of the parts.
