    Default CNCRP PRO4896 Build

    Hi All,

    I've really appreciated reading all the build threads and watching the videos users have put out there on these machine kits. Those threads and videos have inspired my confidence enough to take a shot at this myself. About a week ago, I decided to pull the trigger on a new PRO 4896 kit with PNP NEMA 34 electronics and the PNP Spindle. I'm told there is a 5-6 week lead time on these kits, so it will be a bit before I have everything to get started, but I just wanted to put a placeholder out here for my own build thread.

    Congrats, cncrp makes good stuff. Big thing is to recognize that it is a kit, which will have maybe 95% of what you need. Cable management, etc requires some extra hardware.

    Congrats.... I just finished mine 3 weeks ago. I would recommend getting about 20 extra roll in nuts (cheap). You will needs these for extra accessories you may like to attach. Like stated above, you will need some minor cable management straps.
    One other tip is raise the the extruded metal piece that the electrical driver boxes attach to, or they will be too close the the ground.

    Thanks guys! Your threads have been a big part of my inspiration to try this! I'll be looking to you for more advice as I work my way through my own build and set up.

    I would second Squatch - order some extra hardware. It will come in handy, and CNCRP has really good pricing on it. Also, I didn't use the "hanger" hardware to mount the control boxes, just bolted them directly. Raises them up a bit.

    Thanks for asking. Between the holidays, a couple minor issues with parts, and being overly exacting during the build it took me until now to get the machine built. I will post pictures before too long. I'm now fidgeting with Fusion 360 and CNCRP's setup files to try to get the machine configured correctly.

    Hi All,

    I apologize for the long delay posting back on this thread. This build has truly been a learning experience for me. While the machine build itself presented some challenges, mainly with the need to be rather exacting in construction and a few minor setup issues, the biggest hurdle for me has (still is) been learning the software. I had no prior CAD experience but have been determined to learn. I started only with Fusion 360, and was able to figure out how to use it to tram the spindle and create the spoil board. I found the CAD part of Fusion 360 to be excellent and fun to use - I really appreciate the value of parametric modeling. The CAM part of Fusion 360 however turned out to be somewhat cumbersome to use in my opinion. After enough frustration, I decided to purchase Vectric VCarve Pro for CAM operations. While I'm still getting into it, the combination of Fusion 360 and VCarve seems like it will work well for my needs.

    Here are a few pics from along the way...
