This is my latest project. I'm building a new CNC router to be bigger in cutting envelope (1500mm x 3000mm / approx 5 by 10 ft) and stronger using (mostly) C-beams and other 20-series parts from Openbuilds, and some 40-series extrusions from 80/20.
You can see a lot more of this machine along with the project log and write-up on my Google Photo Album page which is located here: https://goo.gl/photos/Co81AvGwVijE2zow9. The project log goes into a lot more depth regarding the various aspects of the build and the issues encountered in building it. It is not quite yet finished. I'm at perhaps the 75-80% mark with the gantry and motor mounts as the largest outstanding items to complete.
UPDATE 2017-09-12 - Constructed gantry, added X-axis rails, project moving along. See more at updated project log here: https://goo.gl/photos/Co81AvGwVijE2zow9
Build #2 - Bigger & Stronger

Reason for this BuildI needed a CNC router which can cut larger sheet goods as well as one which is stronger and stiffer that can better cut metal (aluminum, etc)
Inspired byObviously the OX, and countless other CNC projects on the web. I also built my own version of the OX which you can see in many of the photos, as well as the build log which is also on this site.
