CNC machine I built
« on: February 01, 2017, 03:26:36 PM »
I thought some of you might like to see this.  It is called a "Mostly Printed CNC" because all the plastic parts are 3D printed.  The files needed to print the parts are FREE!  http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:724999 The metal rails are plain cheap 3/4" emt conduit.  The electronics can all be bought inexpensively online if you can configure them yourself or for a little extra from the machine's designer. I bought most of my electronics and tool bits from him to support his development efforts.

Here is a video of mine:

The machine looks awesome and I also want to have it. It looks quite expensive it's the reason I cannot buy it easily. Can you please tell me what is its maintenance cost and from where I should get it?

You can get it online and its maintenance cost is not much high.
