Thread: wall cnc like the wall saw
so i was thinking:naughty:
is it possible to build a wall mounted cnc, like a wall saw... is this a new concept.? is it possible..
its a space saver if all of the above, mmm:confused:
so what do we think.
id be interested to know, cant find much on't tinternet.. but who knows..
would the gantry be a problem?
arrrgghh i looked on utube. and google... . loads. so it is possible, spose i was looking faor wall cnc etc not vertical ...
any thoughts on it then.
hey jon are you one of them people that just point when asked for directions.... lol
no Jonathan/Jazz will become your best friend just to mention a few and o'my god can they talk/type a post.
JAZZCNC is your man for the Vertical CNC, I like the concept and would do it if I had the right space for it!
Anyway here's my thoughts on it.!! . . . . Don't hesitate and go for it. It works an absolute treat and very little negatives.
If building from fresh then I'd position the gantry to run horizontal not vertical like mine does at the minute. I have mine this way to stop the screws getting covered in crap because of how it's built.
I'd build a super strong bedbase with rails running down each side and twin rotating ballscrews under neath the base. It would be very much like this just using ballscrews instead of R&P.
Jazz would you add a 90 degreed collect/chuck to the spindle so less protrudes out of the z-axis ??
hey jazz that MY photo-!! copyright.... joking obviously-!!
thats an axyz machine- having spoken to the sales guy- he was saying they don't actually sell these in the uk- theres a few in the states but not many-
I asked him about material holding etc and he thought the same as me- although there's a vac table it's not that efficient- and if you were to cut out a circle, for example, as you got to the end there's a danger of it falling back onto the bit- ruining it....
He said obviously you could do mechanical clamping etc but bit more tricky....
i'm pondering a fold down solution, so like the photo but if cutting difficult things/ things that might be hard to clamp, you could lift it down... lots of counterwieghting required and a really stiff table design... hummm
but looking at the photo the z axis is counterwieghted to reduce gravity i guess... nice looking tho...
