    Great job on these mods and upgrades @Metalguru I see a lot of helpful ideas here to make the C-Beam machine a much more robust system. Having a community working together like this really helps to build these machines into the best they can be and we all learn from it along the way. These community driven ideas are what will inspire a V2 ;) Thank you for taking the time to share.

    Thanks, Mark. I was hoping you could incorporate some of these ideas into a V2 kit. Contact me if you want to collablrate further on this.

    Do you have a parts list for this build? I'm interested in doing these mods, but I have no experience building machines.

    You should be able to generate a parts list from the Sketchup model just by making a manual list. Just go through the model and write down all the parts used. I don't use BOM's because I am a custom builder and have an extensive stock of parts, so I just go get what I need off the shelf.

    I did notice that someone revamped the model to include names for all the parts. I have not looked at this SKP file to see what is different. Also, I have made some changes to the SKP design since doing this build, as a result of the build. I have not included these changes in the SKP file yet.

    Edited Model: CNC design (parts named)
