Nice! Any chance you'll be releasing the plans?

What are the cutting area limits?

#5 clausxpf Feb 02, 2012 06:18 PM

for the router it is something like 550 mm x 1100mm
for hot wire cutting it is 450 x 1000 x 400 mm
but the towers can be moved closer to each other down to 100 mm,
that gives extreme possible
angles for the wire

this first video the machine is running 75 mm / minute
we ( Joergen) have now made it run 600 mm / minute without loosing steps.
that gives new possibilities .

Joergen soldering the last plug for the cnc project.
the first test runs have been done! at the moment we can run 400 mm /minute.
the old one have been tuned to run 180 mm/min.
the last collets for the router will be here on monday...
it is a bit of a victory ...
