Well, here's an interesting transformation gone commercial. What looks too much like a planer body is being used to make a narrow CNC router with the ability to work 12+' long pieces ... while keeping foot print of a planer ! It's the Phlatprinter idea with a twist. The CarveWright CX : They even have a rotary adaptor. Looks interesting. Auto correct slips (!), etc. How precise can it be with just about any material ? It's all in the way the gCode is generated. Multiple passes on one axis, stepping other to move the material through once full depth is done on current line. I have been thinking of something similar for a while now. Of course, doing it much wider than 14" or so. The problem I was restling with was how to move the work piece back and forth under the router without getting an alignment situation ? Simple : just feed the material in one direction, doh ! The gCode needs to be generated for this to happen. It basically becomes a software issue at that point. Any one up for making an OX "on a stick" ?
