Open Build CNC machine
« on: January 31, 2019, 03:43:24 PM »

Hi,  I'm brand new to this forum.  I'm sharing a link to a video that shows some of the build and issues of a open build OX CNC machine.  I made it to be on a folding work table, so I can get it out of the way to still get cars in the garage.  It's a 1500mm x 1500mm machine bought from Hobby-Fab.  And I believe they have just a week or so ago closed the doors to their shop.  So that's a little dissapointing.

Check out the link up top to see what the build looks like and I will try to share any new projects that I get going with my new machine.  Thanks!

Nice build - I especially like the folding table  ;)

Welcome to the forum.

I like.  :)

I'm interested in seeing how you get on and what you make.

Are you using Mach3 or Mach4 to control the router?
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

lol  I realized after I posted my post that this forum was probably only for people that own a Mach 3 or Mach 4.  My open build came with a controller that is not either of those.  But I'd still love to see what kind of projects people are doing with their machines.  I have lots of ideas that I want to do.. so maybe seeing and reading some tips and tricks will inspire me even more!
