Building a CNC router. Before starting to build a machine, you will always have to make some sort of a design.
Sometimes it only has to be some sketches on a piece of paper, but for this machine a more precise three dimensional drawing was required. I made my design using google sketchup. Google sketchup is a free cad program, which you can download from the web. I found it was very easy to work with, although I had never worked with a cad program before. You won’t be able to draw as complicated designs as you can, by using other programs like Autocad, but for my purposes it worked just fine. My main goal was to get all of the proper dimensions for my parts, so that I could order them online. I wanted to see if all of my parts were going to fit together.
Because the machine consists of a lot of moving parts, I wanted to make sure that nothing would hit one another while running the machine. When I started designing the machine I already had some parts like the linear rails and the ball screws. I bought these from someone who had built a test machine for his webshop. I used the same electronics for this machine, as I used for the wooden test machine I had built earlier.
These are the basic dimensions and parts used for the machine: Overall dimensions. X: 1. 05. 0mm. Y: 8.
Z: 4. 00mm. Travel. X: 7. 30mm. Y: 6. Z: 1. 50mm. Motors: Nema 2. Nm. Controllers: Leadshine M5.
V2. 0. Spindle: Kress FME 8. Linear rails: X: Sbr 2. Y/Z: Sbr 1. 6Ballscrews: X/Y: 1. Z - axis drive screw: M1.
Aluminum profiles: 3. Misumi 1. 00mm. Aluminum plates: 1.
CAD/CAM software: Cam. Bam. Controller software: Mach. The machine is almost entirely built from 1. I built this CNC router using a very limited amount of tools.
The main tools I used were a drill press and a lathe. Because I didn’t have the right tools to cut the aluminum plates to size, I designed the machine around standard sizes and ordered the plates online, already cut to length. The aluminum extrusions I used were also cut to length and I ordered these from misumi Europe. When designing a CNC router it is helpful to ask yourself a couple of questions. Here you will find the design process I went through for my CNC router.
What type of CNC router do you want to build? There basically are two types of CNC routers: the moving table design and the moving gantry design. Moving table style designs are often used for smaller size CNC routers. They are easier to construct and can be built more rigid than a moving gantry style machine. The downside of letting the table move instead of the gantry, is that the overall footprint of the machine in retrospect to it’s cutting envelope, is about twice as large as with a moving gantry design.
Therefore it probably is better to make a moving gantry style machine, if your cutting envelope is larger than about 3. Because I wanted to build a machine with a cutting envelope of about 6.
I used the moving gantry style design. What do you want to cut with the CNC router?
This determines pretty much every answer to the questions below. I wanted to use the machine for plywood, hardwoods and plastics mainly, but also for aluminum. If you want to cut materials harder than aluminum, I recommend building a CNC mill, instead of a router. What material will you use to construct the machine? This is determined by the question above.
A good guideline is that the material you use to construct the machine is stronger or as strong as the material you want to cut. So if you want to cut aluminum, you should use aluminum or even steel to build the machine. I have seen wooden CNC routers that can cut aluminum (you will find some on youtube), but this went very slow and the machines have to be very well constructed. Because I wanted to cut aluminum with this CNC router, I built it out of aluminum.
I could have used steel, but this is more difficult to machine and I didn’t have the proper tools for that. What length of travel do you need for each axis?
As a kid, this meant whatever I could scrounge together with my supply of Legos. However, as I got older my projects began to get more and more complex. In college, I learned how to use CAD programs that opened a whole new world of complex projects. Building a 3. D model is relatively simple, but turning that model into a physical object can be much harder (not to mention cost a lot of money).
Take for example, an i. Pod stand I designed for my girlfriend. I spent a couple weeks designing it in Solid. Works and once I was happy with the design, I sent the part files out to get laser cut. Not only was this expensive, it took 2 weeks before I got my parts.
To make matters worse, I didn't leave enough clearance for the parts to fit together nicely and had to spend hours sanding the joints down. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines are used to manufacture parts that would otherwise be impossible by hand. They work a little bit like an etch- a- sketch where rotating knobs control the position of the drawing tip. For CNC routers and mills, these knobs (lead screws and linear slides in this case) control the position of a tool that can cut out just about any shape you can imagine. Whereas it’s virtually impossible to draw a perfect circle with an etch- a- sketch, it is simple for a computer to control multiple motors to draw any shape with an amazing degree of precision. That's the basic idea behind a CNC router. A computer controls multiple motors (typically stepper motors) that control the location of a cutting tool.
The computer can read a part file and instruct the motors to move in such a way that it cuts out the part. Simple.
When I saw this for the first time I was hooked. A quick search found that hundreds of people have built similar machines. After spending weeks researching, I sat down and started designing my own machine.
Compared with buying a commercial CNC mill or router it is relatively cheap to build your own. Music Download For Keeps Movie. I was on a pretty tight budget at the time and tried to keep everything under $5. I might have gone slightly over budget with all the mistakes I made along the way, but mistakes and improvements are part of any project. CAD software like Solid.
Works is an invaluable tool for virtually any project and saves countless hours and dollars. I went through several ideas on how to build the structure of the CNC router before finally settling on a design. If you’ve never worked with T- slot extrusions, it’s a very versatile building material. It’s especially useful for creating ridged perpendicular connections with other pieces of T- slot extrusions.
Getting all the axes to be square is crucial for a CNC mill. This is why I chose to work with this material.
You can get 8. However, it is also extremely easy to cut with a miter saw and a multipurpose blade. Since this is a DIY project, I went the DIY route and cut it myself.
T- nuts slide into the grooves in the aluminum extrusion and make a secure connection when tightened. In addition, I made aluminum plates with . This allows for the 8. You can buy premade plates from 8. Instead, I purchased a bar of aluminum 1/8” thick by 1” long by several feet. It was then simply a matter of cutting the pieces and drilling holes. Everything would have to line up perfectly for this to work out.
Drill slightly oversized
Besides the aluminum extrusions, there are a number of plastic parts. I primarily used PVC and HDPE. PVC is the stuff those white plastic pipes you've probably seen are made of. It is a very versatile material and it works great on many parts of my mill.
HDPE on the other hand, does not work so well. HDPE is what most cutting boards are made of and is extremely soft. It’s really easy to machine, but has too much flex.
I'm slowly upgrading all the HDPE parts of my mill to PVC which is far more rigid.
