Thanks, Really nice build Im including some of your design in mine.
I can't really take credit for the design, the bugs were taken out by Nate and Ahren from FineLineAutomation and CNCRouterParts. I modified it a tiny bit, such as widening the Y-Axis 1/2" so that I could get a full 24" of travel in that direction. I also used 1530 (1 1/2" x 3") for the verticals of the gantry instead of 1545 ( 1 1/2" x 4 1/2") to save on cost.
The plans really aren't the easiest to use since it uses the free program "Edrawings" from Solidworks. The plans can be downloaded on the "Free plans" link on this page: FLA100-00 LINK
I redrew the whole thing in Solidworks and that helped because I am VERY familiar with it now and can take apart this machine and re-assemble it if I wanted to for whatever reason.
A dedicated person could easily finish this machine in less than a month of free time on the weekends and a few weeknights, but it's been cold and I've gotten side-tracked a few times.
I can't say I would recommend ordering from FineLineAutomation because he doesn't really have good customer service. Email response time is typically a week minimum, not good if you ask me. On the otherhand, CNCRouterparts can typically respond to your email questions within hours, a day at most.
Since I completely redrew the plans, I'm going to see if it's alright to share them in PDF format since technically they aren't FLA's drawings.
