Hello All,

I'm looking to build a 3 axis for cutting plywood,carbon,fiberglass and aluminium sheet. No milling, just flat sheet cutting.

Have a look through these build logs then cobble together the bits you like for your own machine, http://www.mycncuk.com/forums/253-DIY-CNC-Router-Build-Logs

The best way forward is to make a drawing using CAD, 'Sketchup' is popular becasue it's free and easy to use. That way forum members can see what you propose and over a period of time the design will evolve until you are satisfied with it.
