      Hey there,
      I'm Chris from YouTube and that's my OP C-Beam XL build. For now this is just a build diary but further down the road when I acquired more knowledge and skill I'll try to film a few good rundowns and tutorials.

      OP stands for overpowered because the massive steppers will probably annihilate the tiny lead screws if I ever run into an error.

      Unboxing the kit:



      Building the frame:



      Lead screws, couplings & motors:



      Build plate & angle hack:



      Mounting the 1.5kW spindle:



      First wiring & test drives:



      Wiring the motors & drivers, spindle & VFD, arduino & GRBL:



      Spindle speed control with GRBL:



      Electrical noise keeps triggering the limit switches:



      Going for shielded cables & setting up the home cycle:



      First 2D plot & DIY G-Code tests:
