CNC or I know what you did last summer…

Well, this is what I did… my CNC machine… It has a cutting area of A3 times 10 cm in depth. The only drawbacks are that it is very noisy, produces lots of dust and it is really sloooooow…. So I am in the process of upgrading it with a holding case to reduce noise and dust and with new threaded rods that are supported on both ends, not just at the motor end as they were.

To the video and some links in this post I add now some pictures:

  • Raw materials
  • Imagen005

  • Basic frame built
  • Imagen002

  • Details of the motor / rod coupling
  • Imagen086

  • The finished monster
  • Imagen004

  • You can see the rod unsupported on the right, which I am extending now to the frame to hold it there with a bearing, so that I can reduce whipping and vibration, and hopefully increase speed
  • cnc-001

    1. I am going to try and build one myself very soon. Have spent about 3 weeks researching and am dying to try this out.

      Thank you for posting on the subject.

      • Thanks, I am glad you like it. I hope to restart regular updating of the blog sometime soon.

        If you finally get to build your own I do really recommend the Rockcilff plans, they are cheap and you get access to a great community of people who are willing to help! (link on the right pane of the blog!)
