Build Author Corey Corbin Views 1148
This is a upgrade to make a little deeper and a little bigger foot print for cutting. This is a copy of design off Rob Taylor idea for Dbl C Beam setup. The goal though is to design it around a new build with minimal tools for some one with no cnc access. Drillpress and drill bits and tap set. A 10in Non ferrous metal cutting blade for my table saw. Paper printer for printing DXF files.

Gantry Style CNC from plywood
I am currently 15 years old, from Germany and trying to build a low budged CNC router. I only designed this CNC based on other CNC routers that I have seen and what I am able of. It consists mostly of 2.3cm plywood to keep costs down. The size of the work area is approx. 40 x 80 cm. I would be really glad if you could give me advice's for improvement on the design and everything else ... ( I could really need your help :) ) enjoy :)

Build Author tinwhisker Views 227
This build will use 1/2 inch copper water pipe as the primary material for all structural parts. As of now my intent is a cartesian design drawing from a few popular printers. I'm going to use the least amount of printed parts as possible and locally source as much as I can. I have built an EMT-conduit core-xy printer in the past and while it worked out fine, I feel copper is easier to work, manufactured with more precision, still reasonably inexpensive and will look super cool!

The BEE and ME
I have always wanted to work with CNC machinery...a few years back I got my chance to learn some basics at the Double Glazing Company where I was employed (very basic I might add) before the firm folded and I was made redundant...I wanted to continue learning and when I came across this site which push affordable machines I thought I'd give it a go. So I purchased a !000mmx750mm Screw Driven Workbee from Ooznest and I'm about to embark on my quest as many have done before me...Wish me Luck!

Most of the machine has been made from aluminium , the frame and table from steel, the water table, stainless steel.
