    Hello Mark, I am new to this forum and to the CNC world. I love woodworking and want to see if CNC is something for me. Trough you video's and part list, owning a OX is a realistic option. What i find difficult is where to start? I don't have the budget to order everything at once. Do you have some tips how to begin, what to do and not to do? thnx JW

    Hey Matt, not sure if you are on here much anymore, but I just found your post about getting a viki lcd working on RADDS, and I thought I would give it a shot. I'd appreciate any help you could offer. I am installing a RADDS board, and would love to order a viki, but don't want to invest in it if I can't get it working. Thanks!

      Thank you MaryD, turns out I was over thinking things. I was wondering why my drivers were going to an alarm state but it was just them not being enabled by the Smoothieboard. All working now!

    Hi Mark, IS there a Makita adapter that fits the Dewalt one you sell in your store ? Or are you planning to having one ?
    1. Mark Carew
      Mark Carew
      Hello @dennisn8tkk we do not have an adapter available on the Part Store as of yet. But in the mean time you could 3D print one. There are a few different ones in the Resources that may help

    You printed some parts for others making the Delta Six Build,I have a cheep "prusa", and need some knowledge. What are you using Pla, Abs? I have been trying print vertices using ABS and they warps every time. I have a heated bed I have used Glue Bluetape Brims Rafts, Normally I would print out of PLA but, I am worried that the Steppers will warm up and warp the part? Any guidance would be appreciated. Dave

      I use Hatchbox ABS, pinted at 50-70% infill at 143c and HB at 95c. I don't get much wrping or lifting.

    hey Ryan,

    I was looking into your OX CNC kit and it is looking very promising for his price. But i was wandering, can it be easily upgraded with a laser module? To make it an laser cutter.

    greetings jeroen swyngedouw
    1. Ryan Lock
      Ryan Lock

      Thank you for contacting us. We don't offer the upgrade, but there is no reason why you couldn't attach a laser to it, you will just need to find suitable controller/software to pair it with.

I am absolutely new to that CNC Topic and would like to know, what max feed rate and acceleration the OX CNC with the CNC X Pro Controller board can handle? I want to use 6mm flat end mills with XPS foam. Thank you in advance, pitily found nothing in the Manual and here in the Forum. Greetings and a succesful new year 2017, Stephan

      There are always other factors that will changes these settings mainly how the machine is built , but this is a good starting point. Hope this helps, be sure to ask questions in the discussion thread of the build (tab at the top) so that other will learn as well. Thank you

    Hi Daz , watching your build progress with great interest as I intend to build my own C beam in the near future , I currently have a stepcraft 600 with Vcarve pro and uccnc software which has been fun to learn on but the build quality is not the best . I notice that you are in Wales - I live in Wrexham "small world or what" Keep up the good work with the vids ATB Bri
