$3500 is quite reasonable, when you consider the costs for 3 big stepper motors, over a hundred kilos of steel, metal fabrication, and the sheer size proposed. Just the stainless steel to cover the print bed is over $200 by itself. Powder coating will run over $150 dollars. Quarter sheet of 1.5mm aluminum plate for the gantry, stainless steel threaded rod, brass rack and pinion, roller bearings, and engineering services to develop firmware.

We are talking about a entry level industrial quality machine here.

BTW The first large format inkjet printer was 100,000 USD+a jumbojet charter flight from Israel to Los Angeles.

If your machine can produce acceptable quality output, I will be willing to contribute / purchase it.
