River City Labs Evolution CNC Router build update. Check out the full album… https://goo.gl/photos/o1e1vdjfm93q2ZuG9 …I have the core machine and stand built. Waiting on some backordered M5 x 55mm hardware from Fastenal to mount the motors and ordered some other final equipment. I am starting to run wires this morning and hook up limit switches. Sick me, sick kids and wife that had ACL surgery a week ago have slowed things down but I should be done in a couple weeks. (Fingers Crossed)
Do you have a project ( pdf .dxf .) ?
what is your total cost for machine?
@shekhar_Shroff this machine cost me $2700. My brother is building a 1250mm x 1250mm version of this machine and it is around $3000. I’ve done some redesign of the gantry since the original build fixing some design flaws which in the coming weeks I will post. The larger footprint my brother is building does not use any c-beam as the c-beams limit is 1000mm before you start getting issues with straightness. The major flaws that I corrected were issues with the gantry drooping and deflection. The updated design makes the gantry more rigid and places the rails in a way that it compliments how the linear bearings work effectively. I will be posting the larger footprint as well.
