# Scaling

- Scaling mainly consists of changing the size of the frame (to affect travel ranges) and the type of step motors (to affect travel rates)

- Other discrete components such as fasteners, leadscrews, and shafts need only be scaled if necessary for functionality or certain desired performance specifications

- The travel range calculation for the X axis:

(X Travel Range) = (Distance Between 2 Parallel Frame Angles Along Horizontal Plane) - (Length of Platform Along Axis)

- The travel range calculation for the Y axis:

(Y Travel Range) = (Distance Between 2 Parallel Frame Angles Along Vertical Plane) - (Length of Z Support Angles Along Axis)
