I'd love to show you some music videos of building CNC router process. Those are my very first videos so it might be a little bit boring sometimes (like making electrical wires etc), but i'm still learning to make it more interesting and suprising, so if you like it please subscribe :)
So, machine is designed by me in Fusion360, mostly for woodworking and light materials. But i'm hoping to cut some aluminium with this router which i think should be possible with approx 1 or 1,5 mm cut depth. After test cuts in aluminium composite sheets i'm pretty shure that should be no problem. Router is very light designed, and uses mostly cheap materials, bearings, linear rails, and stuff because precision i need doesn't have to be more accurate than 0.1 mm. So i don't had to make base frame like big fat tank.
Costs are approx. 1200$ with 1,3m x 0,9m of work area (which can be a bit bigger because of long ball screws, but all aluminium profiles should be then replaced with longer ones).
