Hi guys, new to the forum but excited about building a CNC machine... I have looked at the OX, and it looks like a cool design, but I was also looking at the C-Beam Machine. I like it's design for the most part, the only thing I don't like is that the Y axis seems to be a bit flimsy. I don't like that the table is supported only by a very small area and any play in the carriage of the Y axis table or flex in the beam would be multiplied by the torque arm formed by the table. This may be OK for doing flat plates, but if you wanted to do any serious 3D shapes, or edge machining, I think it would distort too much. Also, the C-Beam machine seems to have a very limited Z axis capacity. C-Beam X and Z axes are great, and the lead screw construction is simple, cheap, and really adaptable. So I asked myself the question: Would it be possible to use the Z and X axes based on the C-Beam system, but use the Y axis configuration of the OX system. This should result in a stiffer system, with all of the capabilities of the OX, but with the much simpler and cheaper construction of the C-Beam for the X and Z axes. Do you think it would require custom side plates to do this, or would it be a simple modification to bolt the C-Beam X axis to the OX side plates?
