myOX : a 4' x 2' OX CNC with potential
This is the story of me building myOX - my version of the "ideal" OX. I wanted a machine which could work piece at least 4' wide, as long as I could feed through (don't be shy, think "infinity") AND go deep on multiple faces - a manual 4th axis to carve, say, molds for thermoforming polycarbonate shells. I have loads of ideas to take myOX towards that goal and way beyond. Time will tell and I will update this build as I go along, probably creating a few other builds along the way ...

Ultimo is the ultimate multi tool for the person who's serious about prototyping new ideas. A Delta Robot frame supports 3d printing up to 450mm in diameter, a powerful CNC Mill, and 50 amp plasma cutter for processing steel plate. And that's just a start.....wait till you see some of the other attachments we are currently working on incorporating.

Software speed control of a brushless dc (Bldc) motor from Mach3.
Although this build is typically Mach3 related there is no reason it cannot be adapted for use with any machine control software which provides a PWM spindle control output. As an addition, an option has now been added which will enable the interface to manually control outrunner speed without the need for a PWM signal.

Ez3D - Phoenix 3D Printer Build
This is my 1st submission to openbuilds.com and my 1st venture into building a 3D Printer. The Phoenix 3d Printer is a kit from Ez3D, a company based out of Colorado, started and backed by successful Kick-starter and IndieGogo campaigns. The Phoenix 3d Printer kit is currently backlogged 10 to 12 weeks which means quite a wait. I will be chronicling my experience with this kit as I get it done.
