CNC 2 Build Log – In process!

CNC 2 will be a single axis actuator CNC router/mill based on the layout of my Techno ISEL DaVinci XYZ robot.

 

 

DaVinci XYZ machineThis is the DaVinci.  Work space is 12 x 10 x4 inches.

 

 

a_ISOThis is pretty much what CNC 2 will look like.  A fixed bridge gantry holds the Y axis.  The X is a moving table.  Z is attached to the Y bridge.  Work space will be 16 x 12 x 2 to 8 inches.  The 2 to 8 inches is for the Z axis and results from the adjustable height of the Y bridge.

 

 

b_Single Axis ActuatorsThese are the three single axis actuators that will be used instead of unsupported or supported rails. Inside each actuator is a ball screw drive running a table on THK style profile rails.

 

 

c_Actuator GutsThis actuator has the cover removed so you can see the profile rails and ball screw.

f_Actuator OrientationThis image shows the space relationship of the 3 single axis actuators.

 

 

e_FrameThis frame forms the main structural component of the router.  Once this is built the actuators are just bolted to make the router.

 

 

Milling the bridge supportsTrimming the 3×3 inch aluminum extrusions square.

 

 

j_Rough_gantry_plateRough cutting the side support.

 

 

k_Machining_plateFinish milling the side plates.

 

 

Frame partsClamping the frame components in place to check the fit.
