I used the C-Beam BOM to put this together for about 5/8 of the price using other parts i've collected over time. Originally I used the Smoothieboard but later returned it. Instead I opted for an Uno\CNC Shield to control it (about 1/8th the price of xPro and Smoothie) and I use EstleCam firmware and software. Works like a charm!
This build is my version of the CBeam machine. I opted to NOT use the Gussets, and instead went for the 40, and 60 mil angle brackets to cut the price back a little further. I started with the smoothieboard but decided it was still "too new" and very much experimental. This build took me a few (2-3) days to complete. The CBeams and Lead-Screws really make building things faster since you don't have to clamor over belts.
