Step 1: Drawing the machine

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

On the PDF i put all the measurements.



i want to use M10 or M12 as leadscrews......, <br>These motor of nema 23 287oz-in.....,got any low torque problems whilw work with M10 and M12?
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?
Sir Please help me.... <br>1.I have doubt that what you have used in router construction at end of each lead screw ie bearing or Nut of leadscrew <br>2.How you are coupled leadscrews and axis tables ie how we are transmitting motion from threaded leadscrews to axis motion (for this we have used any Nut couplers under the table in Z-axis(Horizontal axis)? ).................,Thank you!
Sir Please help me....am confusing in lead-screw selection alot.... <br>Please say The complete LENGTH of lead-screws AND TURNS PER INCH(TPI) of lead-screws you have used in X,Y&amp;Z directions........, <br>and also specify the length of thread portion in each lead-screw of three directions you have used. <br>share all the stuff you are having regarding to lead-screw design and selection. <br>and where you have bought those lead-screws............Thank you.

I want to use 1/8&quot; shank diameter drill bit to my simple 2D drawings, <br>taken from this link: <br>http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-MILL-DRILL-ROUTER-BITS-0-05in-1-27mm-OR-1-16in-0-0625in-1-5875mm-/170933401215?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&amp;hash=item27cc6cb67f <br> <br>Please sent suitable type of 2D drawings with G-code files to my tool <br>configuration. <br>or suggest me any other 1/8&quot;shank diameter wood cutting drill bit <br> <br>I want to buy spindle from this link: <br>http://www.mydiycnc.com/content/mydiycnc-upgrade-spindle <br>The spindle seller said that its access 1/8&quot; shank diameter drill bit <br>for woodworkings...........Thank you.
Sir Please...........,sent some simple 2D drawing sketches and their G-code files, you have created by using yours desktop cnc to my mail id: krissh0009@gmail.com <br>These are more helpful to me...............Thank you.
sir please say.............. where you have buy those leadscrews? thank you
sir.....if you don't mind please sent those CAD and CAM softwares you have used, to my mail id: <br>krissh0009@gmail.com <br>or provide a link for me..............thank you
which CADandCAM softwares you have used for drawing preparation and convertion into G-codes?......Thank you
for design i use adobe illustrator or solid works. For the gcode i use Mastercam or Cambam
which CADandCAM softwares you have used for drawing preparation and convertion into G-codes?......Thank you
which CADandCAM softwares you have used for drawing preparation and convertion into G-codes?......Thank you
Please say the dimensions of 3 leadscrews ie length,diameter,pitch and thread type of leadscrews, you have used in yours router design..........Thank you.
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.
please help........ <br>i want to construct simple wood working 2D drawing desktop cnc machine <br>i have two options of cnc kits: <br>1.http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Axis-CNC-Kit-Nema-23-Stepper-Motor-287oz-in-3-Axis-Driver-Board-/140903100382?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&amp;hash=item20ce7aafde <br>manufactered by china <br> <br>2.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=300659428456&amp;fromMakeTrack=true <br>manufactered by hongkok <br> <br>which cnc kit's configurations are suitable to my application ? <br>and which one is reliable product?
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.
Sir Please say.......... <br>So.........there is no risk to buy the kit from this link <br>http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Axis-CNC-Kit-Nema-23-Stepper-Motor-287oz-in-3-Axis-Driver-Board-/140903100382?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&amp;hash=item20ce7aafde <br>I want to work, just simple 2D drawings on wood by using my desktop cnc machine <br>Thank you.......
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.

Please say......... <br>What are the soft wares we have requried to operate Desktop CNC? <br>You have sent Mach3 software to me..... <br>I Have AutoCAD,Kcam4(Downloaded from:http://www.kellyware.com/download/index.htm) and trail version of ArtCAM Express <br>I have doubt that,these softwares i have are not Genuine versions.....so These are having capable to operate Desktop CNC Machine or not?
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
Please help me...... <br>sir.....i want to buy 3 Nema23 stepper motor 287oz-in cnc kit from ebay with cost of 132USD....ie china manufactered on through this link <br>http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Axis-CNC-Kit-Nema-23-Stepper-Motor-287oz-in-3-Axis-Driver-Board-/140903100382?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&amp;hash=item20ce7aafde <br>I have doubt that it will work or not ? <br>It is suitable or not to our woodcutting Desktop CNC Machine?
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.
