    Gents,

    I'm trying to build an L shaped box which has a z axis assembly mounted on it. Looking for someone who can CNC the following in MDF, plywood or alu (it's a prototype to try out an idea, so I'm trying to keep the costs down):



    The plates will need holes for screws / bolts and a few larger holes for bearings. MDF / plywood would need to be 15mm, alu would be 10mm thick.

    The above drawing is a rough estimate of how many plates are needed and the dimensions, I can of course provide more precise drawings for the job.

    Regards,
    dsc.

    Just a quick update of the overall view, going with 18mm MDF and cross dowels for assembly:

    Any good souls willing to cutting this please PM. Material is Ecocast 15mm, which will probably needs supplying as I haven't got the means to transport 500mm x 1500mm 15mm thick plate.

    Regards,
