- This is the evolution of my Sphinx CNC router. I will try to keep the overall appearance. I am open to suggestions.
- The machine will be designed as a whole in SketchUp and the individual plates will be available in Fusion 360.
- I want to discuss the different aspects of machine design like the strength & weakness of different linear rail orientations, gantry heights etc.
Let me explain: About a year ago I was planning to build a CNC router of my own design. I started gathering components including the THK linear rails. I soon found out you pretty much need a CNC to build a CNC and this is when I decided to build my Sphinx machine. I've had these rails and some other parts sitting around so it's time I used them! I'm planning to incorporate linear rails and 1605 ballscrews into the Sphinx design. I really like the overall appearance of the Sphinx.
