      v slot cnc 2014 iso.png v slot cnc 2014 front.png v slot cnc 2014 back.png v slot cnc 2014 side.png I have designed a CNC router featuring a 3 axis V-Slot rail system. I plan to make a custom plate kit and full plans available through a crowd funding project.

      Router Features:
      • Rigid V-slot extrusion frame
      • Robust 15mm wide belt drive system on x,y, and z with dual motors on the long axis
      • 12 custom designed 3/8" 6061 aluminum plates
      • Working area of 33" X 25" X 4" (Can be made larger or smaller
      New Name and Updated Design.

      This router is now called the Cheetah CNC 1.1. I have made changes to the design to allow a more efficient use of materials and to minimize deflection using better mechanical advantage.

      Design Changes:

      • 20 X 80 extrusion for the z axis beam instead of a 2040
      • Double beam on the gantry axis instead of a single beam
      • The gantry belt drive was relocated to make room for a second beam.
      • The gantry beam was moved forward to minimize deflection through the gantry plates.
