Large C-Beam Sphinx style CNC Build
Started my build of a large Sphinx style cnc Router. I wanted one to handle the Dollar Tree Foam Board (DTFB) so I am making this to handle 2' X 3'. This is my first endeavor for a CNC so I am learning as I go but there is one thing for sure.

C-Beam Prefab Untitled
The C-Beam Prefab Untitled is designed as the cartesian compliment to the C-Beam XL. With the exception of requiring a couple more 1000mm C-Beams and lead screws, the build requires a minimum of additional parts. The primary intention of the build is to maximize the cutting envelope while still staying within the sweet spot for C-beam rigidity. This design can easily be modified and allows for further custom structural components to be cut with the initial build platform.

Currently I will run the Dewalt 611 router on the Z axis, but have plans to add in a brushless RC style motor. So this design does have room to go either way easily.
