Core XY update 3.3

Still not quite 200 in Z, but I am determined

So I tried a bunch of sizes for my Z rod clamps and settled on Moving the Z smooth rods 5mm In on the Y and 15mm Down on the Z

This enabled the Build plate to descend the entire length of the rod (there is a plastic bump around a screw head that sticks out level to the end of the t-slot, so it not all wasted space between the bearing holder and the side)

Next I mounted the power supply under the machine using
Now on thingiverse
They seem to do the job.

Next is the re attach the Z Stepper and lead screw
I use the same mounting bracket for the stepper but turn it upside down. So the stepper is completely below the t-slot

There is now about 2 mm space between the Power supply and the tslot.
The power supply also has to be positioned between the two heated bed mounts.
