Read more about this build...
Don't worry about your dated skill set. It has been about 20 years since i worked with anything CNC and I was able to build an OX CNC without any issues. If you get stuck ask for help, someone will come to your aid (Most likely multiple someones) And most builds have been documented very well, along with long discussion threads dedicated to solving issues and adding features etc.
Awesome to hear from someone thanks Anthony. When i come back from vacation im going to finish it up. I think assembly is the easy part!
The hardest part for me was finding free to cheap software that i was happy with and performed well, at first it was quite a struggle, now i'm in a happy place
Good Luck with your build!
Thanks for having a look Gary, glad to hear you are doing well with your machine! Hope to be in a happy place asap with mine as well!!
can i ask please i have an ox cnc black box 1500/1500 im just trying to set it up but need to add the workspace ie work area y and work area x could you please tell me
As I remember, I believe the travel cutting area of the 1515 sized OX was:
X Axis: 1320mm
Y Axis: 1275mm
Z Axis: 69mm
Hope this helps
I measured mine by jogging the axis to the limit switch but not crashing it. I laid out a tape measure and then chose a point , any point you want, on the gantry. I then jogged to the other end to a point just before it hits the end of the machine and measured on the tape the distance traveled. I put that into the program.
I can confirm the Y is 1275. Well, actually I squeezed another mm out and it is 1276 on mine.
thank you very very much i will give it a try
thank you if you have this machine can you tell me what cutting size of machine total also what point is the homing corner
also what Gcode sender are you using i really appreciate your help
do you have the ox pro openbuild 1500 / 1500
what software are you using a really appreciate your help
Bryan, my Ox is custom plates, HD Ox 1500x1000. Can see my build on my page, since the build I switched to a Blackbox.
I had a lot of experience with Autocad so now I'm using free Nanocad 5.0 (like an autocad clone) and ESTLcam for cam and its built in sender with Blackbox.
