    I just realised i have never made an introduction thread for me or Lucy.

    I am Bam, I have used a CNC machine whilst at school, but that was about 20 years ago (god i feel old).
    I recently purchased a used (i think self build) machine.

    About Lucy, The machine:

    Dimensions: X: 1000mm Y: 1000mm
    Cutting area: X: 800mm Y: 720mm
    Interface: Parallel
    Software: Mach3, Vectric Aspire, Adobe Illustrator
    Driver board: CNC4X45A
    Limits: Home: X, Y, Z End: X,Y,Z e-Stop
    Base: 12mm MDF
    Gantries: 20x800mm Aluminum V-Slot
    Steppers: Y: 2 x Nema 23's ACT 23HS8630B (Nema23)*Step Angle:*1.8*Holding Torque:*1,5Nm*V/A:*2.7V / 3.0A
    X: 1 x Nema 23 57HS64-3008*Step Angle:*1.8 HOlding*Torque:1.5Nm *V/A:*1.6V / 4..2 A (http://cnc4you.co.uk/resources/57HS64-3008.pdf)
