Hello everyone, as the title states this is my first cnc build. I work as an electronic technician for a printer company. My interests in stepper motors and robotics has been growing since ive been there. My goal is to have a 2x3 foot- 3 axis(maybe 4 later on) cnc machine. So far this is what i have gathered.
x2-900mm TBR 20mm round linear rails --(X) plus 8 TBR20UU bearing slides
x2-600mm TBR 200mm --(Y)
x2 300mm TBR 16mm --(Z) plus 4 TBR16UU bearing slides
3 HP liquid cooled spindle Variable speed.
I plan on milling aluminum, possibly steel and whatever else i can get my hands on. I havent picked out motors or controllers yet as i dont know which ones will benefit me the most. I model my parts in Solidworks.
I hope i can learn alot on this forum from people who have done this before. If anyone has any suggestions regarding my setup i would love to hear from them.
