Schematic of no-XYZ gantry

sketched by Marc Levoy
July 18, 1996 version
(drawn to scale, but mechanical detailing is only "suggestive")

As suggested in the drawing, we might want to move the post radially outwards a bit, to give us more flexibility in the future. Comments on my proposed solution to the two-arm collision problem (my little subsketch in the upper-right corner) are welcome. Note my list of advantages and disadvantages below the proposed solution.
