    Hi, where can i find it? Or am i looking in the wrong place ;-) Ordered the same motion controller and motor drivers, and also the floating z-head from you :)

    How did you do the wiring for the Y axis? I see only one driver, but there are 2 motors on the OX y axis?

    Building the same table..

    Thx, Erik

    Do you have the files for the plates you used to connect the legs?

    What was your estimated cost in the build so far? Not including the plasma cutter itself.

    Hello
    I think the final price is around 2000€ including the water pan.
    Regards

    You mentioned in previous discussions that you were using Sheetcam to create G-code and using a GRBL based machine control, I want to do that using Sheetcam and Openbuilds Control which is Grbl, what post processor in sheetcam works? Or how did you get it to work?

    Sorry , i made a mistake.
    GRBL post pro is not included with sheetcam.
    I found it in a forum .
    This is the link : GRBL Post processor for Sheetcam - sheetcam.com
    It does not handle the floating head . (If you want to use it you have to insert manually some code to your gcode file .)

    I am also building a plasma cutter and intend to use GRBL and UGS. I have a trial version of sheetcam to test out with and although I have the GRBL PP, have no idea how to make changes to use a floating head system.
    I have built the floating head, now need to work out how to use it with the PP, any ideas on how to do that? What changes or additions would I have to make to the GRBL PP file?
