    Looking forward to reading about this build. :thumbsup:

    You are certainly more bold than I when it comes to using Mach4 - perhaps in another year (or so) I may be ready for it. :)

    Well thats the bed complete with precision vice.
    Unfortunately I dont like it so I have uploaded a video of how I made it showing all the mistakes and how I tried to cover them up. I have now ordered some plastic sheet to remake the top.



    V2 on its way....

    I'm a big fan of your composite bed.
    two questions, how is hsm and what's the precision vise module?
    and thirdly hsm plots the tool path but still requires mach3/4?
    finally could you post a quick pick of your electronics wiring config?

    Hsm seemed pretty scary at first the bed was the first thing I done with it, after a while you begin to find how easy it is to use. As I said v2 of the bed will be filmed and I could add in the inventor/hsm part.
    I have made a well at the front that a precision vise fits in there is a pic of the vise at he beginning,



    The electronics will be uploaded soon.

    Actually the bed is starting too grow on me now with the 2 extra side channels, but I got some 20mm HDPE i wanted to use. unfortunately it tends to warp near heat so dont ant to take chance, I`m just waiting for some other plastic thats 2mm so I can skin the bed with it.

    Great video, Daz. I really need to build an enclosure for mine and get all the wires ran neatly. You've given me a lot of great ideas with your videos.

    Found it in me archives, well needed it myself anyway for the new bed. Ive packed it in a zip with versions of EPS, AI, SVG and CDR hope it will be usefull as it was made for my graphtec plotter and has quite a few nodes for the cutter to penetrate the aluminium foil, will need the nodes reducing..
