    I hear you!
    Won't touch the moat until I've somehow manufactured a drillguide for the linear guides. I think Neil made one that looks real good. Think I might copy the concept ;)

    Been fooling around with my Z axis and did a quick fitment test. Looks like I should be able to lube the bearings without much fuss? And I need to buy larger washers before I can remake the Z dropplate in aluminium with the correctly placed holes for the rails :)
    Should be a little lighter with 20mm aluminium then the current 15mm steel hehe

    looks great so far to me! Quick progress too!

    Nickhofen - honest question here, so please don't take it the wrong way, but what does one do with a CNC router/mill when one can't use CAD?

    I can definitely recommend you download fusion360 and have a play since its free to use for hobbiest/startups earning under $100k. Fairly easy to get started with it and plenty of video tutorials on youtube and their own learning academy etc.

    Thanks alot!
    But I don't know about quick, been collecting parts and stuff for a long time :)
    But it's nice to finally start putting it together. Now I have to adjust either the ballscrew or the pulley to make it all fit. About 0.2mm from perfect fit then I can test my first motorized axis movement :D

    No hard feelings my friend, what you said is so true.
    I have download Autodesk 3ds Max free version and try to learn it, I do not know if it is better or worst than Fusion, I just dowload it because I have a frien that use it to make jewelery.

    I use solidworks right now.. I find fusion a little confusing! I liked onshape also but it doesn't seem free anymore?! I might have done something with my account, wouldn't be the first time :D

    Very nice work! I notice you have blue carriages on your linear rails what brand are they? Do you have a link where you got them?
