Team Powerfail: How do you move the tool? Do your use threaded bars plus nuts or sth. more
And what kind of linear bearings do you use?
Joe Anthing: Worth getting a simple relay for the motor. Good though! Currently building
one out of steel myself. Everything is in place except the electronics.
Carlos Bermudez: Hello,
Congratulation, your cnc router is very great ! I'm curently working on my
futur cnc router and i would like to know what is the thickness of you MDF
you use for majority of your cnc router ? And how did you do the double 45°
on the rail field for put the angle, with a router ?
George Scidmore: That is truly impressive! Nice work!
jameslee522: what did you use to cut all your pieces for your cnc. Also how do you
adjust the bearings for play?
kamilino1: This is very beautiful work!!!!
Saul Goodman: Hey is the driver board reasonable or does it burn quickly because I am
interested on one of those but lots of people dont get them to work or say
they burn out
Saul Goodman: @Rogerquin Oh Nice and thanks for the reply I am planing on building one of
these machines for my senior project and dont know much about them and I
saw a package with the driver board and stepper motors and power supply for
a good price
kram242: Very cool Roger! Thank you for sharing this :D Not sure if you are aware
but there is a new version of the SketchUcam (Phlatscript) available on the
Phlatforum com. It allows for overhead and safe Z travel. As well as a
plugin Phlat3D that will produce 3D carvings from Sketchup files! :D Check
out it Thanks again Mark and Trish Phlatboyz
CxC2007: Did you tryed PCB routing yet?
keith howlette: Nice machine looks very well made. What size is it and what steppers have
you used. I've all ready built a CNC hot wire foam cutter and I'm looking
to build a cnc router next. Are the skateboard bearings easy to setup and
get rolling without any binding. Thanks Keith
LWJCarroll: Roger...the MDF the machine is made from, looks to be 1"
Roger Quintero: It does look fairly thick in the video. But it's actually 3/4" thick. Thanks
aus10eww: How accurate is your machine
Roger Quintero: The steppers are nema 23 189 oz torque. Approx size is 26"x42". The bearing
setup is easy as long as you have some type of tension adjustment. Thanks
ThinkSchematics: Are you still using Google SketchUp? If so can you do a video about that,
right now I am trying to find good software, and I am trying out CamBam.
Lyden Briffa: nice work man
Fly3DMon: Nice work. I'm sure the guys on the Phlatforum would like to see how you
have used the Phlatscript with your machine.
David Gross: what brand of driver? I am building one got it to a point where I need the
motors and driver...but there's alot out there to choose from I am using a
jgro plan I modified
Kit Hygh: What are you using as motor couplers? I've had poor luck with 1/4" inner
diameter vinyl tubing with hose clamps, right now with some ridgid delrin
that allows no misalignment so i've had to leave my motor mounts slightly
loose.. :( Yours look like an intersting aluminum tubing arrangement?
Rafael Aguilar: Nice Machine!!! What torque are those steppes?
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
