    If there is a way to send someone a private message on here, I guess I am over looking it. I have the files for the carriage, but would rather not post them in a public area. I am providing the OpenSCAD code I used so if there are any changes that need to be made, you can do it.

    If you send me a private message on Thingiverse (ElmoC), I can get the files emailed to you.

    Would you still be interested in printing parts for the OX CNC?

      Hi Pancho, From Chili I think you should source the parts from OpenBuildsPartstore. However, there are some important elements that can not be supplied. These include gantry plates, z-limit switches, dual belt end brackets, tape, and spindle bracket for 43mm (like Kress 1050).

      These items you can get from makersupplies.dk
      Prices you see on makersupplies.dk are including 25% VAT. Shipments to addresses outside EU will not have to pay this VAT - but you may be charged to import by Chile.
      To get a quote for shipment please contact support@makersupplies.dk with a list of items you need.
      Hope this helps you on with your considerations.
      Cheers from Denmark, Martin

      Sorry Oliver but I'm only a forum moderator and not an insider with the company and I have exactly the same limited amount of information that you do. The new laser's announcement was as much a surprise to me as it was to everyone else.

    Hello Mark,
    Strange that I can not find anything here on site about pending laser engraver release?
    No news, nothing.
    Do you have any date, anything?
    Power, size?

    Hello,
    Need some advice regarding choosing between C- Beam XL or OX.
    Plans are to later add 17W diode laser on Z axis.
    Which one is to preffer. If I choose OX I will almost att once change it to OX Metal with lead screws so cost will be the same.
    I do not like belts on any machine.
    All tips are wellcome.

      It sounds like your best set up right out of the gate would be to go with the lead screw driven C-Beam XL if you are wanting a lead driven machine to work with a diode this should work well for you. You can always use it to make plates as well if you decide to go with a larger machine down the road.

    Changed the 250mm supports with 400mm c-beam, accurately cut by Ooznest (no filing, thank God), now I have great Z travel on the XLarge.

    Hi, I purchased a C-Beam XLarge kit from Ooznest in the UK; very good experience and producing some really nice parts, 2d and 3d. I wonder if I could get your opinion on changing the 250mm long c-beam Posts that support the X Gantry to say 300mm in order to increase the Z travel?

    Hi I have been using your inkscape extension, Engineering 305. Is there a way to change resolution values? May be have 8px/mm sort of options?

    I have just retired and looking to extend my woodworking hobby to include CNC C-Beam machine.
    I'm looking at purchasing this unit from Ooznest in the UK. Can you tell me if their materials are to a satisfactory standards and original concept by Mark.
    I have no idea what I am getting into and not at all sure if all this is within my capabilities anyway especially when it come to the software and design.
    Regards

    Do you have a complete parts list? I am pretty sure i have it narrowed down through your posts and other research but want to order all at once and want to make sure i am not missing anything. Also having trouble nailing down a file for the 2" taller gantry plate complete set chris made for you as i want to have these made locally. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Sorry to be bothering you,
    But I have a problem with my cnc that I can not solve,
    Works fine when I work with Gcode sender manually on the various axes, however, when I submit a G code project, the x, y, and y advances are uncontrollable

      Hello Goncalo,
      This would be a perfect question to post to the forum at large. I have not used Gcode sender in a while. Go ahead and start a new thread, and if possible post up the Gcode file that is giving you problems so it can be tested / reviewed. From the video it appears to be a work position or homing issue.

      Can you send me your gcode file? It looks like you have a 25.4 factor :P (sees metric measurement (say 100mm) and moves 100 inches instead)

    Good Morning,
    Sorry to be bothering but I have a problem with my cnc:

    He is using Arduino one and G-shield, and Universal G sender

    It works well with the G sender manually on the various axes, however when
    Sending a project to cut it advances in x + and gets uncontrolled.

    Or rather loses the coordinates.

    I really do not know what I'm doing wrong.

    Someone who can help me.

      Hi Goncalo
      As I have previously written below, I'm afraid I am more conversant with the mechanical side of CNCs rather than the electronics. I think you will be much better off starting a thread in the General Area of the Forum, rather than within my own Profile.
      Sorry I can't be of more help.
