The 3D printer is built on a plank of wood of 40 by 80 cm This gives ample space to place electronics, power supply etc. on the base and have everything easily accessible. It did take a lot of space on my worktable so it had to go somewhere else. Rather than getting another table in the room, I decided to mount legs under the base and make a table out of the printer. The legs are easily removed if needed for transport.
