    i haven't did anything in z axis . it is stock ox 1500x1000 . i have some flex on the whole carriage that runs on the double 60x20 profile but i dont mind . What is bother me is the flex on the z axis. When it comes to drill then it is flexing along y axis. i mean instead of going down vertically ( z-axis) when it touch the part then it flexs a little on the y axis.

    The easiest solution is just to extend the spacer blocks. Looks like you could easily add 60mm to them. The additional leverage adds a fair amount of rigidity.

    the c-beam upgrade needs internal mini wheels, or it is just the outside wheels ?

    At first I was using the standard Ox HD that Chrisclub cuts (no inside wheels), but have since designed my own plates (the ones in the pic) that do have the inside wheels as well.
    see pics

    I've tested Nema 23 CNC stepper motor from STEPPERONLINE. This stepper motor performs very well for my application and exceeded my expectations. I'm using these in a milling cnc I'm building to drive the axis ball screws and have been able to achieve speeds in excess of 2200rpm which with a 5mm pitch screw, translates into 11,000mm/min or over 400IPM. Mass moved during these tests was 60lbs. Granted the torque at this speed is next to nothing for the given voltage but at least is an indicator of where the limitations are.

    Hi!
    I have a problem with machine, I completed the assembly but when I want to use the machine, the machine have problem.
    I have tried to machine a simple circle but it is deformed, I think that the axes have some blur but I don't know how to know what the real problem is.
    Can anybody help me?

    You may have a loose screw on your pulley. Or you may need to calibrate your x, y, and z axis. If it is a belted system, use Steps per millimeter - belt driven systems to figure out what your steps/mm should be. Then do this:


    Or if using the Openbuilds software, there is instructions on how to calibrate.

    Double check that all the wheels are appropriately tight against the rails. If you can spin them with a finger the opposite eccentric will need to be adjusted.

    Are those plate designs available? Or just the plates? I've been working on a design to attach a c-beam z to my OX but it a tried and true version already exists...

    Sooo... What's the best way to add a homing switch to the z-axis? (Stock, not upgraded yet.)

    Dumb question, i've been following this build for a while but I noticed a lot of builders are using this for wood, can I use this for acrylic also?. I am getting deeper into custom PCs and want to have my own CNC since I PCSed to Korea.

    Not a dumb question at all. Actually the Ox is ideal for acrylic as the belts allow for faster cutter head movement than screws. Acrylic cuts best with a low spindle speed and fast cutter head movement as this generates less heat at the cutter head, promoting better cutting and less melting of the plastic.

    Здравствуйте, извиняюсь если темой ошибся, у меня что-то сайт открывается с ошибкой подозреваю что моя интернет-программа подглючивает в чем проблема не могу понять, у меня у одного так или у всех?

    hi I’m new here a friend provided me this site, I’m looking to build a fiber laser or one that can do stippling on polymer and engraving on aluminum and steel. If you have any suggested or links it would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks,

    Jake

    Perdón por la ortografía. No hablo inglés y uno es el traductor de google. jajaja

    Recibí mi blackbox hace dos días y hoy la he conectado.
    Ha funcionado aunque el eje Y me hace mucho ruido.
    Lo desconecté por un tiempo y cuando lo vuelvo a conectar no conecta los motores. La luz que marca la conexión de los motores no se enciende.

    [QUOTE = "Peter Van Der Walt, post: 98428, miembro: 69967"] El traductor de Google dice que está relacionado con: "Lo conecté. Funcionó a pesar de que el eje Y me hace mucho ruido".

    Consulte documentos: blackbox: faq-identity-motor-coils [Documentación de OpenBuilds]
    Supongo que compró motores de otro lugar, por lo que debe identificar los pares de bobinas [/ QUOTE]

    NO, the motors came with the machine when I bought it.

    Ha comenzado a hacer ruido cuando configuré los pasos del motor.

    I also have a problem with the blackbox. It worked well and I stopped it for an hour. When I have reconnected it does not connect the motors. The engine connection light does not come on.

    OK, but do follow the link, it explains how to also test your wiring

    Fix faulty wiring first, usually incorrect wiring (particularly limits) causes this issue

    Always check wiring before powering on - it can cause damage if done incorrectly

    Also refer to docs:blackbox:faq-usb-connection-failed [OpenBuilds Documentation]

    Using OX CNC from last one year and I loved it so much. It completely stand on my requirement and needs. At first i am not thinking to buy it as i hear some bad reviews about it but my thoughts are changed after reading this article related OX CNC review . The OX CNC machine can easily be set up by you alone and you can assemble as per your own purposes. It can be built for small scale purposes and cut through boards measuring up to 1' x 1.5' small. You can also use the CNC machine with a larger frame to cut through larger boards measuring 2' x 4' .
    The main thing about this machine is that :- This machine can be made to cut any size of wooden planks and boards. The design is very simple and consists of many upgrades over the normal CNC machines available. The upgraded design is meant to make your work easier, faster, and smoother. This specs of this CNC machine helps in gaining audience attraction.

    I am pretty happy with my CNC machine.
