Summary

We made this CNC from the donated linear slides and stages, and other things lying around the space, and some bits and pieces that members had. All suggestions for improvements / modification are welcome!

Specs

  • Spindle 1000 to 20000rpm
  • Rapid traverse rate at 100% 2000mm/min
  • Axis travel
    • X(longitudinal) 800mm
    • Y(cross) 960mm
    • Z(vertical) 80mm (Phase 1), 280mm (Phase 2)

Technical

The system currently runs GRBL 0.9 and is very similar to use to the Shapeoko2.

To start the spindle, press the green button on the VFD. Use the up and down keys to vary the speed.
