      In your page for the OX you have instructions for a Spoiler board. In the instructions it talks about Hold Down clamps that will be available in the store. Have you added this item to the store yet? I did not see it when I was looking.

        Hello Brett, Yes we have plans to offer these but at this time do not have them complete. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have them available soon.

      Mark, I am going to build a large C-Beam based CNC Router. I want to use a 750 mm X axis with a 1500 mm Y using 2 C Beam spaced 80 mm between the 2. I need help with the best way to locate the NEMA 23 motors. I would like to use an ACME on the Z with at least 6" of cutting height. I need help with this design and all the parts required .

        I think the best thing for us is recommend is that you start a build here.
        Here on OpenBuilds®, you will have access to valuable feedback from many like minded individuals and Builders as well as resources and tools that can't be found anywhere else.

        Thank you
        Mark

      Hi Mark: Is the (CNC xPro V2 Controller Stepper Driver) a good replacement for the electrics that came with the Plll?
      Its still working ok but failer may be around the corner.
      thanks bobada

        Yes Bob I think the xPRO would work great for the PIII

      Hi Mark. I am looking to buy a CNC bundle and think that the OX fits my build size requirements the most. I was hoping for a build size of 2' x 3'. Do you have a parts list for the OX able to handle that build size? I really like the C Beam machine as well and wonder what is the largest size you seen one built. I am looking to mill Aluminum hopefully up to 1" thick.

      Hi Mark
      I'm very interested in buying "V-Slot™ Linear Actuator Bundle (Lead Screw)".
      Do you have skp files or any other CAD of this bundle. I hope I can purchase it by this week.
      Thanks!

        Thank you very much!
        Also, do you have some components similar to 80/20 that can support this bundle and make it like a gantry crane?
        Or does this lead crew actuator match 80/20 T-slot aluminum.
        Thank you again Mark

      Hey Mark...Do you know when the 1500mm 20X80 will be back in stock? I want to build a 2X4 machine, but may have to downsize as I am anxious to get things ordered and it looks like 1000mm is the longest in stock

      Thanks

      I am interested in building a long arm robotic quilting frame. The sewing head weighs 47 pounds so I need a strong large frame. I am interested in your C extrusions but need some specs on the deflection for a 3 meter length. I only see 1500 mm is the largest rail but I am willing to piece it. Thanks for any advice.

        Hello @Joe Neill
        Thank you for contacting us.
        At this time we have not completed testing on the C-Beam actuators but we are working to have them done as soon as possible. You can look at the deflection values of V-Slot 20x80 that may help to get you closer.

      Hi Mark.

      A couple questions. I cant find the drawings for the roller wheels. Also I live in the Philippines and shipping/import duties is very expensive here.

      I have a source of Bosch style aluminum profile, will that work without changing the build plate dimensions? Also Is it possible to make the build plates from 12mm acrylic?

      I have a homemade router but it is not very good to cut aluminum with.

      Hi Mark, where can I find the following settings ($0, $1, $110, $120, micro-stepping ratio and current) for X rail C-Beam Linear Actuator Bundle 1000mm with Nema 23 stepper driven by CNC xPRO V2 CONTROLLER? It seems that no matter what I use, I get very loud action and vibration on the actuator movements.

        Mark Carew
        Hello @efis Please see the postings of the grbl settings others have shared on the discussion page as well as the settings in the misc folder of the download page. Other then this I would (power off) and triple check your wiring) and maybe adjust your feedrate speeds from the software you are making the code with it may need to go up or down a bit to remove any resonance.

      Mark, I'm pretty new to OpenBuilds, but I have placed a >$400.00 order and received a large portion of the v-slot rail incorrectly. The order and packing slip are correctly marked, but the fulfilled part is incorrect, someone marked it by mistake. Any chance you can help? Also, thanks SO much for the parts, community, and support. this is an awesome place to learn and share. Much appreciated.
      1. Mark Carew
        Mark Carew
        Hello @giardinm Thank you for your kind words.
        We apologize for this order mistake and ask that you contact the Part Store Team so that they can work this out for you. https://openbuildspartstore.com/contact-us-form/ (so they will have your information) I also will look into this for you and see what can be done asap so that you can continue your build. Thank you

        Mark hate to be a pain, but I received someone else's order today instead of mine. There was a mix up on one digit in the orders. Can you help again? 2 out of 3 orders have been wrong.

      Hi Mark, I love your information and the videos!! I am watching one on YouTube for the C-Beam assembly and I find the new format with the GoPro camera really hard to watch as the camera distorts the picture and the constant movement is hard to watch. Maybe I am the only one who finds it difficult to watch?? Just thought I would let you know! Keep up the great work!! Thanks!!
      1. Mark Carew
        Mark Carew
        Thanks for the feedback @crnrstndes we should be able to remove the distortion

      Hi Mark,
      I need to convert a Sketchup drawing to a .stp (STEP) file format. Do you know of a easy way to get this done? What steps (pardon the pun) would you use?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
