      Looks really good. This is the kind of machine I would like to build myself.

      Plans would be excellent since the cadwork is so Awesome. This is a perfect evolution of the OX. Leads screws would be great and the rigid design looks promising!

      5 stars ++++ I am curious as to planes as well. I this is the best design i have seen yet. It looks like its a Beast for its size something that I am looking for. I purchased a " black" 1000 X 1000mm kit back in March I am not happy at all.

        I think the OX build is a greeting looking design, so I wanted my next machine to look great as well.

      I'm happy to leave my own design behind to adopt this well thought through design. Do you plan to release the CAD model and if so when? It would be a great benefit to the CNC community!

        Adrian also have a look at this thread on cnc zone. http://www.cnczone.com/forums/diy-cnc-router-table-machines/182294-cnc-2.html It's a great looking machine expertly produced. I have recently spoke to a few expert members and they all suggest I don't need the double rail on the Y given the quality of the bearings I purchased.

        Thank you, it's been a fun adventure so far. When I know the design works I will seriously consider sharing the plans and the 3D model.

        I seriously thought about using the igus double linear bearing like yours. It looks like such a perfect solution for an OpenBuild machine.

        Thank you, it's been a fun adventure so far. I worked on special effected software from the 90s so I like to produce something that looks good. SolidWorks makes this easy

      I love it. After looking at lots and lots of various designs, this is the one that I would want to build.
