Thread: routing 3d?

  1. #1
    before i start to build my mini router, i've a few questions if any1 can help!

    i wanna start 3d milling (faces, badges, etc)in wood but i have no idea on what cad/cam would be best for a complete novice like me

    what type of steppers an drivers will be best

    would 3" or 4" travel in Z best

    an how does the m/c know where its home positions are without limit switches

    oh yeh, im on a tight buget!!!

    no doubt ill think of a few more later but till then

    thanx in advance
