Step 1: Drawing the machine

I started by creating the design of the machine on SolidWorks.

On the PDF i put all the measurements.



at low speed shouldn't have any problems, maybe you can run 150 mm per minute, but it's very slow
Sir....i am india...engineering student...you project details sent my mail...<br>Please <br>My mail :- <br>mynamebalakrishnan@gmail.com
here in the end of the page <br>http://www.wantmotor.com/ProductsView.asp?id=160&amp;pid=75&amp;sid=80 <br>you have the graphics of the motors, here you can compare the better speed/torque racio
<p>Would you like to reduce the backlash?</p><p>It is very Easy , i think :) <a href="http://www.dumpster.com" rel="nofollow">www.dumpster.com</a> is a link with antiback lash solutions and cheap</p><p>Otherway you can DIY with a pieces of HDPE High Density Poly Ethilene ( Polietileno de alta densidade , ex t&aacute;bua de cortar p&atilde;o) </p><p>In a shop of specialized plastic materials you can take it very very cheap!!</p><p>My Email</p><p>nunotec@hotmail.com</p>
<p>VERY VERY GOOD PROJECT I WOULD LIKE TO BUILD IT </p><p>IT SEEM YOU ARE PORTUGUESE , I AM TOO, I AM FROM OPORTO</p><p>BEST REGARDS</p><p>NUNO</p>
This looks awesome! <br> <br>I'm quite curious, what kind of accuracy / precision do you get? <br>and what depth can it cut?
It has a good precision, but have a little bit backslash. The depth of the cut depends of the bits, but i think 70mm it`s the max.
What is the coiled yellow line for? Is that compressed air or a vacuum?
for design i use adobe illustrator or solid works. For the gcode i use Mastercam or Cambam
i used m8 screws as a lead screw i think is 1.5 mm/revolution or something close. X axis have +/- 800mm Y axis have 1000mm and the Z axis have +/- 250mm or 300mm i don't remember.
i bought the same as option 1. my opinion is that the first option is the one that has the strongest motors. The drivers are the same on both options. the secund have couplers .. hmm i dont know. i think the motors are the more important thing.
how hard was it to tweak the software? <br>
a little bit, i still have some problems with backlash but isn't a big deal
You can compensate for backlash in Mach 3. It works really well.
my motors came with mach3, the same i send to you. i dont know other software. for that you have foruns like cnczone, they talk about this things
hello, it's the same i bought, the only problem of this motors at high speed they lose a lot of torque. <br>if you go to they website you can see the graphics i think is wantmotor or something like that.
it's just a ordinary router, only costs me about 30&euro;
