Up and cutting!
Can you tell us about your experience with STB4100 card? Thanks.
Estoy empezando.... me encanta este tema..
Welcome to OpenBuilds!
Hope and trust you are doing OK.
I have recently purchased a 2.2kW spindle and VFD.
With particular interest in the 40 x 40 V-Slot: Is there any chance you might expand the range to include a 40 x 80 V-Slot ?
Would the standard 80 x 20 and or C-beam be strong enough to cope with the stresses generated by the 2.2 kW spindle?
There is the 40x80 C-Beam . From what I can find the 2.2 weighs about 8kg (17lbs) so that is beefy for sure and more then likely overkill for the type of work we do here. But you can never how too much power :D My suggestion is to use 2 C-Beams in parallel on the X axis using the 2 C-Beam XL plates mounted together with a plate for mounting the Z axis.
Really though with a modular system like V-Slot your best is to scour the forum and talk to the guys about ideas they may have as well. All the best with your build. Looking forward to seeing it.
I have just finished wiring up my CNC and my Z axis is reversed , can this be put right using the software
or will I have to change the wires
Swapping the wires should reverse the motor. If this does not work for you then please ask in the Xpro support thread here - http://openbuilds.com/threads/cnc-xpro-driver.487/page-22
Hope this helps.
thanks that helped, no have my z axis working as it should
Glad to be a help, Have fun with your Build! :)
SIR: I have watched your videos 4, I love them. I am trying to build one like yours, I have the rails, motors, what I would like to get is the NUT BLOCKs, I can not find them.
Hello @DWA please have at the first 3 items here.
Hope this helps and all the best with your build!
Thank you MaryD
I placed an order and it went to pending, then I had to add a cpl things to it so it went back into awaiting fulfillment. First they were quick to respond to emails, but now they won't respond at all. 4 unanswered emails since Friday. I know this isn't the place for this, but since they won't respond to any emails I didn't know what else to do to get some kind of attention brought to this matter.
Sorry for this delay, the Part Store Team has taken care of this issue and you should be back on track. All the best with your Build.
Hi.Chris! This is Siraj, a new member from Ethiopia. I am very much interested in your project. am thinking of making a large build size (2500*1500) cutting area. any suggestions from your experience? thanks a lot in advance.
Hello Sir. I see that you have plates on sale at ebay. If I were to follow your cutom build thread, are those the only customized parts I need to buy to start buiding ? Do you also offer complete kit minus electrical/electronics ?
The Ebay plate sets while my design are made by @Chris Laidlaw not myself and are indeed the only custom parts required for a Sphinx build. The rest of the components are off the shelf OpenBuilds components.
Thank you . Very encouraged after watching video. This will be my first time build anything this scale even though I build rc helicopters, this is many folds involved

I am talking about the entry you made for the contest

Hello, I am considering buying the Ox cnc from your website, but would love to see one first. Do you know of any in the north east that i could go see?
Hi, Just replied on twitter, saw you already did my suggestion though :)
Just finished my first build. The C beam xl. Great kit from the uk supplier ooznest also fantastic support too. Looking to start wiring up so reaching out for some help around the Grbl setting for v3 board and the xl. Also siting and setting micro stop switches and the whole concept of homing! Any help would be really appreciated as looking forward to sending first Gcode
Hello Peter, congratulations on your Build!
On the xPRO settings please see the xPRO thread here
This is where the guys from Spark Concepts (board creators) hang out. They will be glad to help you on your questions. Hope this helps to get you up and running!
Thanks Mark I am on my cyber travels as I post!
V-Rail is in!
Did you ever finish your Delta design? I would love the SW files.
Hello Mark, I am new to this forum and to the CNC world. I love woodworking and want to see if CNC is something for me. Trough you video's and part list, owning a OX is a realistic option. What i find difficult is where to start? I don't have the budget to order everything at once. Do you have some tips how to begin, what to do and not to do? thnx JW
Hello JW thanks for reaching out to us and for the kind words. My suggestion for starting your OX Build and having questions would be to jump right into the discussions thread and see what works best for your application.
All the best with your Build, have fun!
Hey Matt, not sure if you are on here much anymore, but I just found your post about getting a viki lcd working on RADDS, and I thought I would give it a shot. I'd appreciate any help you could offer. I am installing a RADDS board, and would love to order a viki, but don't want to invest in it if I can't get it working. Thanks!
Avatar... Robotics are my interest area. Retired, but still enthusiastic in developing something like cnc, iot, arduino...
Can't wait to see your build!
Mark, How do you report spam? The following build is spam: http://www.openbuilds.com/builds/http-platinumcleanserinfo-com-ivanola-skin-serum.4477/
Thanks Brian, got'em :) Nice job
New Style 3d Printer, launching at Maker Fair Newcastle 1-3rd April. looking for partners, investors etc. Recruitment at the fair.
I just finished reading almost all of the 900+ threads in the CNC Router Builds forum.
Wow! You can teach a class now ;->
one build down....so many to go.....
Can't wait to see more about your Desktop PCB
I have the CBeam actuators ordered and the 40X40 should be here today. I hope to have something posted sooner rather than later to the build
The Robot Oblivion is nigh
Any idea how to make this Smoothieboard work?
You may want to post questions about Controller Boards here .....http://openbuilds.com/forums/controller-boards.28/
Thank you MaryD, turns out I was over thinking things. I was wondering why my drivers were going to an alarm state but it was just them not being enabled by the Smoothieboard. All working now!
Moag, big fan of your work....I see that you have a CBeam XL with smoothie board and was wondering if you could provide me with your setup parameters as Im running into issues setting mine up. If you could it would be very much appreciated.
Are you still willing to print the parts?
