Build Your own CNC Router

Build Your own CNC Router

Build this high performance bench top CNC router plans that covers complete construction as well as CNC and CAD/CAM basics.  This unique machine was designed to solve the problems that are inherent in the designs of all other homebuilt routers.  The result is a design that far outperforms any other machine that could be built for anywhere close to this price range.  It is stiffer, stronger, faster, more accurate, and more reliable.  And unlike many of the other designs that are offered for sale, my primary goal was not to sell plans.  It was to build a serious tool that I could actually use and depend on.

 

 

 

Uses NEMA-23 stepper motors.  Works well with 276-425 oz/in. sizes.
The machine in the video is using 276 oz./in stepper motors and a Xylotex drive board.  Any drive board with similar specifications can be used.

The build plans includes the following:
       Complete Bill of Materials
       List of suppliers for all materials & components
       Exploded-view drawings
       Detail drawings of all parts
       Detailed photos and assembly directions
       Metalworking techniques to easily get good results working with aluminum
       CNC basics
       Machine design information, including structural calculations, Very useful if you are  interested in modifying this design, or designing your own machine.
       CAD/CAM software workflow
