I've been working on the cnc milling design all weekend and tonight, here's where I'm at. I also spent some time learning about iLogic / iPart in Inventor. Design size is based around 1500mm Y rails, 1000mm X rail and 350mm Z rails. Early estimated working size is 800mm x 1300mm x 6.5" high
I'm in the process of designing a new CNC milling machine (gantry-style) After searching the internet for open-source designs, I couldn't find a design that meet my requirements Below 3000$ cdn At least 36" x 24" work area Extremely rigid frame Must be able to work with wood, plastic, aluminium and steel > 6" clearance on the Z axis Long lasting mechanic (no plastic wheels to wear down) Open source so I can tweak and upgrade Readily available hardware I've found many designs on http://www.openbuilds.com/?category=cnc-router-builds&id=286 and https://id2cnc.com/ but nothing that meet all my requirements. I decided that the risk of building a machine that wasn't strong enough and would need to be replaced in a year outweighted the complexity of a new
Election day today, hope we'll finally move to something else in the news (dream on...)
I settled on the Zerif theme and am currently customizing it for my content. I'm hoping to achieve the right balance between a website and a blog site
