Have you always dreamed of building your own CNC machine but just don’t have the skills or equipment needed to make the parts you can’t buy off the shelf?
Well now you can buy those parts …..and you can build your very own CNC machine.
SmoothkamCNC sell a kit of the four plates you need to set up your X Y and Z axis - with plasma cut holes and slots that accept standard off the shelf parts. It’s a simple matter of deciding what size table you want to build, buy the plate kit, buy the rails, rail supports and linear bearings and bolt it all together. They are also designed to match with the mountings on standard ballscrew bearings and Nema23 stepper motors.
With the optional front and back units you can build your own machine in just a few hours.
The kit is made from quality 3mm* cold rolled steel and has been plasma cut on a CNC machine made from the very parts it is cutting out. The X and Y plates are suitable for any size machine up to a maximum of around 95cm square working area - The Z plate gives a 10cm height range.
The length of the front and back units determine the width of the table and are available up to 100cm . Longer units can be supplied for plasma use, but for routers, sizes above 100cm really need heavier rails and bearings which would not be compatible with the standard plate kit.
* Z front plate is cut from 2mm steel - all parts are painted matt black.
