    I've decided the machine I need for my unique projects is a rotary turntable with a stationary Z axis (just up and down). I need a table that can accommodate approx 12" diameter material with a Z cutting of 12" in height.

    Anyone built something similar? I'm mostly looking for advice on a turntable/lathe chuck supplier.
    I want to cnc carve head busts out of high density foam and soft basswood.

    Would this require a special controller of just a Z and A?

    still going to need 3 axis
    up/down
    turn
    left/right
    I think the hardest part will be generating the g-code...
