Here are the cad files for anyone who is interested: http://www.cnc.draft-design.com/CNC_CAD.zip
The design was done with Inventor 10, the assembly file called "CNCA.iam" is the file you want to open, all the other files are the parts that make up the assembly... its not very organized.
There's a free Inventor viewer here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...112&id=9627721
Just to reiterate the contents of the file are not a finished work, there messy and disorganized.
Don't plan on adding any more braceing to the bearings those two 5/16" bolts should handle what ever I can throw a then... I hope.
haha second video coming up shortly. Not nearly as long as the one you were able to post, you must have a pretty fast connection for that to not take forever..
so here's the machine with all working axis
you can't really see it but I just ran it through the EMC2 AXIS test run. Its running there at 120 in/min and 30 in^2/sec acceleration. Seems to handle that just fine I think I could crank it up quite a bit but want to enjoy it for a while before I break anything.
I've been looking at routers online... there expensive. I have these motors lying around from previous projects:
Here's the label:
Looked online and found a data sheet for them:http://www.specamotor.com/en/Dunkerm...eet_motor.html
There rated at 240 watt continuous use and 1629 watt peak use, that works out to ~1/3hp continuous and 2-1/8hp peak @ 3200 rpms. There very quality heavey duty motors I'm thinking I might try and get a Taig or Sherline spindle set up and see if I can hack everything together... I'll look here on the zone and see if its been done before.
Got an enclosure done and have been cutting some wood..
The dust is a real issue as it builds up on the bearing surfaces. I need to figure out some kind of dust control.
Sounds like you need like you need one of those vacuum hoods. Saw dust really caught me by surprise too. It gets everywhere.
