Scara 3D printer v2 - fail

Short review - fail.

Aluminum tubes (od-8, Id-6) too weak, on a 30 cm distance twists for a 0.5 degrees along 30cm. 5mm threaded rod have the same problem.
Because of issues above printing results does not match target quality.

But, v3 is started.

My v3 ideas:
1) classic arm scheme
2) platform is fixed, printing block movable
3) smaller footprint -50x150x20mm
4) ability to convert to robot arm manipulator
