    Hi, I purchased a C-Beam XLarge kit from Ooznest in the UK; very good experience and producing some really nice parts, 2d and 3d. I wonder if I could get your opinion on changing the 250mm long c-beam Posts that support the X Gantry to say 300mm in order to increase the Z travel?

    Hi I have been using your inkscape extension, Engineering 305. Is there a way to change resolution values? May be have 8px/mm sort of options?

    I have just retired and looking to extend my woodworking hobby to include CNC C-Beam machine.
    I'm looking at purchasing this unit from Ooznest in the UK. Can you tell me if their materials are to a satisfactory standards and original concept by Mark.
    I have no idea what I am getting into and not at all sure if all this is within my capabilities anyway especially when it come to the software and design.
    Regards

    Do you have a complete parts list? I am pretty sure i have it narrowed down through your posts and other research but want to order all at once and want to make sure i am not missing anything. Also having trouble nailing down a file for the 2" taller gantry plate complete set chris made for you as i want to have these made locally. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Sorry to be bothering you,
    But I have a problem with my cnc that I can not solve,
    Works fine when I work with Gcode sender manually on the various axes, however, when I submit a G code project, the x, y, and y advances are uncontrollable

      Hello Goncalo,
      This would be a perfect question to post to the forum at large. I have not used Gcode sender in a while. Go ahead and start a new thread, and if possible post up the Gcode file that is giving you problems so it can be tested / reviewed. From the video it appears to be a work position or homing issue.

      Can you send me your gcode file? It looks like you have a 25.4 factor :P (sees metric measurement (say 100mm) and moves 100 inches instead)

    Good Morning,
    Sorry to be bothering but I have a problem with my cnc:

    He is using Arduino one and G-shield, and Universal G sender

    It works well with the G sender manually on the various axes, however when
    Sending a project to cut it advances in x + and gets uncontrolled.

    Or rather loses the coordinates.

    I really do not know what I'm doing wrong.

    Someone who can help me.

      Hi Goncalo
      As I have previously written below, I'm afraid I am more conversant with the mechanical side of CNCs rather than the electronics. I think you will be much better off starting a thread in the General Area of the Forum, rather than within my own Profile.
      Sorry I can't be of more help.

      Hello @Gonçalo martins I do not have this particular setup but I will give some advice that may help.
      Not sure if this will help but from this statement "Or rather loses the coordinates." it seems to me that it could be your unit of measure (mm/in) not set right in your code vs. the control software.

    I am new to this forum and like to build the Ooznest OX CNC Machine build in 'Cartesian Style CNC' published by Ryan Lock, Jul 20, 2016. Can someoneplease help me to recalculate this spread sheet to a working space from 450 x 1200 x 100 mm ? I hope someone can help me.
    1. Mark Carew
      Mark Carew
      Hello @MeindertJB , thank you for reaching out to us. I did not make the spread sheet so not sure there but I think that your best best for this answer would be to reach out on the Ooznest OX support thread.

      Hi,

      The parts list would be the same. It would be just the extrusion lengths which would need changing. The spreadsheet is for a 500x750mm machine. All you need to do is take 50mm off all the 20x40 & 20x60 extrusions (Except the 20x60x200mm). And add 450mm to all the 20x80mm extrusions.

      Best Regards

    Hi Kyo

    I already have the sphinx plates, but confused over the lead screw lengths. If I have 500mm c beams the parts list says 500mm leads screws but the PDF of the build says 530mm. I think I need the longer ones, but could you or any one else please confirm I am thinking right.

      Hello Hue,
      Go ahead and order the 500mm Long lead screw from the parts store. The Leadscrew will come in at a measured length of 540mm.. It can be trimmed down to 530mm for a flush install or left at 540mm if you wanted to install some Jog knobs. Also available from the Openbuilds Part store.

    Mark,
    I was wondered if you could share where you sourced the green connectors on the APEX design that go from the PCB to the stepper driver. I have a control system (non CNC) for a laboratory sample system that currently has too many wires that I would like to neaten up. If you can help I would greatly appreciate it!

      Hello @PhotoSgt85 the board house sourced these for us, so I am not sure. If I am able to find out I will send out a message to you about them.

      Just wanted to let you know I found out that they are called Phoenix connectors. I have a project I hope to have coming forth soon that uses these that I think you'll like.

    Hi atflake, can you share your setting for your c-beam? I have the exact same setup as you including xPRO V3 stepper driver board. What software are you using? I'm currently trying to set all that up.
    If possible can you add me in facebook for faster response? gus.montoya@gmail.com

    Hi. I am an old cogger who is new to this. I may be in the wrong place so if I am perhaps you could point me in the right direction.
    Just purchased a Mini Mill and have completed putting it together. Now I need some help with the electronics and computer software.
    I am well used to drawing in solidworks so now I need to be able to connect my drawings to the mill. It is this I think I need help with

    hi Kyo
    i all redy build my cnc depend on your design C-beam Sphinx and order the y and x plate from ebay i finish build it using arduino cnc shield its works fine but missing steps in y and the both sides are warb after finish the carve
    Can you please advise me?

      Hello Kokash,
      I would first check driver setting and grbl setting all have the same micro stepping. (what drivers are you using?) The next item I would check is drag or rough / tightness on the Y-axis side that is loosing steps. Are they staying in sync? The nut block or wheels may be to tight. You will also want to double check wiring and connections to make sure you do not have any loose wires or shorts.
