myOX : a 4' x 2' OX CNC with potential

Cartesian Style CNC

Build in Progress...

This is the story of me building myOX - my version of the "ideal" OX. I wanted a machine which could route/mill at least 4' wide and as long as I can feed through (don't be shy, think "infinity") as well as going deep on multiple faces - a manual 4th axis. I have loads of ideas to take myOX towards that goal and way beyond. Time will tell. Just follow along through this build and possibly a few others along the way ...

I am building a simple home brewed printer. I have a background in industrial automation so I figured how hard could this be. The mechanical build was pretty smooth as was the electrical side. Now just getting plastic out the hotend is my stopping point.

This is going to be about modding a stock OX CNC into a more refined faster animal that's a bit stronger than the Ox hence the name "Clydesdale"

This is where I will share my attempt at building a slightly "beefier" OpenBuilds OX CNC Machine using commonly available parts in the spirit of OPENBUILDS and Open Source in general. I have a tendancy to over-build things so I will be balancing that tendacy against budget constraints and common sense as much as possible.

Here is my first ever CNC build. A CNC Hotwire Foam Cutter. I will update about achievements. I would love to read from you guys - advices, ideas. Especially regarding the electronics. I feel confident with the hardware part which I can't say about the electronics part.

Laser Cutter Builds

With such great success/attention my laser got, I ended up with a good friend that would like to dabble in stencil art and so I have decided to share my build with him and you here :) I will be using all the same electronics as in my previous build except the driver boards I will be using are the famous reprap 4988's they are more easy to come by and cost less. I will also be using open builds mini v wheels/v groove extrusion just so I can get a feel for their versatile products

This is my first cnc build, never used one before and don't know too much besides what i've read a little bit about them online. It's probably going to be about 31" y axis with hopefully around 4ft x axis, z height is still to be determined.
