I decided to double the size of the standard c-beam package and this is that project.
Size enlarged to 1000mmx1000mm. Extending the sides and back to the 1000mm extruded aluminum.
Bear in mind, you will need a solid worktop of at least 42"x42" for this build. You need to make a space for this first or you may run into space constraints issues.
I built my base out of treated 2x4 lumber, 3/4" mdf flooring as a top base with 1/2" mdf over that.
The only issue I ran into was that I enlarged the work surface as well. I decided to go back to the 12"x12" and as suggested I will add taller spaces on the gantry plate so I can go beyond the Y axis stepper to fully utilize the project base.
I will update and add pics and videos later if possible.
My first cuts
As you can see I tested the wrench file on this scrap mdf, also wanted to do a test run of the Open Builds Logo.
C-Beam basic package doubled in size.

Reason for this BuildI wanted to get into the world of hobby cnc and make items for sale or friends, etcetera.
Inspired byI admired the site for C-Beam Open Builds and Tracy Ranson was a great help and an inspiration for the build.
