    Default Seitz333's CRP2448 Build

    Hi All,

    I have been lurking on the forum for over 2 years and finally decided to build myself a home cnc router. I went with cncrouterparts crp2448 kit. This weekend I put the majority of it together and hopefully this week the rest of my parts will arrive so I can finish the build next weekend.

    I built the machine purely for hobby, I hope to build a few electric guitars and I have some other projects I want to do. I'm sure I will have many questions.

    Here is what I used and where I bought it from:

    Machine Base: www.cncrouterparts.com crp2448
    Router: www.Ugracnc.com 80mm 2.2kw water cooled spindle
    Electronics: www.cncrouterparts Nema 23 3/8" shaft
    Cooling System: www.Ugracnc.com
    VFD Drive: www.precision-elec.com Lenze AC Tech ESV222N02YXB

    Software:

    BobCAD V24
    Mach3

    Comments questions or suggestions welcome!

    Thanks,

    Chuck

    That looks good Chuck. Is that a full torsion box under the 80/20 frame ?

    Yes it is, I built the table using 4x4's & 2x4's - and a 3' 0" x 6' 8" Birch solid core door. Then I put the torsion box on top of the door. Cant wait to get it running.

    Small update, today I connected the power supply to the motors and Gecko G540 drive and the E-stop. All worked like it is supposed to, now waiting for my VFD drive to arrive this week and get it configured. Then it will be getting Mach 3 configured and BobCAD.

    I have made a lot of progress in last few weeks here are some update pics. I have to throw out a huge thanks for Ahren at CNCRP for his help and GREAT customer service. I have not had any problems so far but this being my first build I have had several question and he has been a great help.

    Installed the cable track kit from cncrp


    Instead of attaching the one end to the end of the Y gantry I attached it to the motor mount plate.


    I added an additonal tray to hold the water cooled system. You can also see in the background I installed the VFD Drive, and connected the spindle.



    I added 3 support brackets under the Y axis cable track tray and the coolant system tray.


    I'm hoping to finish this weekend! Next up is installing the T-Track for the table clamping system, then make some touch plates, install the home switches, finish configuring Mach3, then start calibrating.

    Still looking great
    I can recommend the 2010 screen set for mach 3, it has nice functions for using touch plate for zeroing z axis etc, it was one of the best upgrades I installed on my machine. (I have no affiliation, just happy customer) .

    Looking forward to seeing your first cut and videos, we all love watching them moving about under their own control.

    Cheers Rob

    I'll get it finished sometime after I start it.....

    Thanks Rob, I'll take a look at the 2010 screen set.

    Just finished installing the T-tracks for clamping.

    Rob, FYI I bought the 2010 Screenset, I plan to try it out later tonight. I mainly bought it for the touch plate zeroing.
