    The table was done today. Used 15 mm plywood instead of 22, due to incredible price of the thicker one. I think 15 mm will do. Also made a shelf underneath, as I have limited space in my workshop. A little doubtful about this, as it tends to fill up with crap. I also mountet two electrical tubes under the table, just to be able to run hidden wiring for power in case I should need it sometime.

    I also got to start with the assembly. I need to assemble the frame and gantry in order to figure out the mounting spots for the ballscrews, so I can order them to exact length. 2017-03-08 22.26.31.jpg 2017-03-08 22.51.35.jpg

    Got a little done today, tapped the ends of the main rails and mounted the subframe. Had to take i apart after first assembly due to fixing the end beam in the flat position instead of vertical. A lot of screws to reposition. Next is to finish the gantry in order to figure out the lengths and mounting points for the ballscrew, so I can order these.

    Cool build happening! I'm curious what gauge of stainless you opted for on your plates?

    Got a cabinet for the electronics sourced, an old enclosure for some ventilation systems that was obsolete. Right size and sturdy cabinet. Startet with the wiring to the drivers and controller card.

    Wiring of the drivers ready. Now it is just sensors and power supply in to the box remaining, then the control cabinet is done.

    I would really like to see some form of cooling in that box. It's going to get pretty warm in there.
    Ideally, depending on where you plan to have it, a good sized fan sucking in from the bottom and exhausting across those drivers and out the side / back top. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, it's a well enclosed box, so I have to have some sort of ventilation. I'm going to mount it on the side of the table, so I figure a fan on one of the sides and intake holes under each drive should do it. I just have to finish mounting all of the power supplies, so I can see where the best location for that fan will be.
