    Nice to see you on again Wal. Also there is an option on the printable version to show 40 posts on one page (at the top right hand side)

    Good call on the '40 posts' Clive. Yeah, I've been lurking a bit... I'm around one of the weekends in Feb (8th?) I'll give you a shout and maybe drop in for a cuppa!

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum but want to build something similar to this (very similar) I have read the thread a few times and am in the process of re-drawing the design in NX as I am not familiar enough with Sketchup to be confident releasing parts from it for manufacture. Also I think if I redraw it I will have a better idea of exactly how it all works and whether it will still be suitable for my requirements.

    Could you please provide exact part numbers for the ball screws and linear rails you have used in this design. I have got the Hiwin catalogues but am unsure of the exact components that have been used. Once I know exactly what is used I can then start modelling these also.

    Really enjoy reading the thread and have learned a lot already.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can be.

    Thanks,
    Sy

    You can see that for yourself by looking at the next one!! Boyan's going to have built 6 or 8 machines by the time I've done one I recon!

    The main difference is that i would have done all from aluminum plate, cause i spend too much time cleaning, , aligning, welding, painting, etc. When you draw the line is not that much cheaper and aluminum is more beautiful to look at.

    Speaking especially about a machine made for sale , not for one for my self.

    Querido Silyavski, have you some detailed info, or some thread that point me to the right way about how to level with epoxy top and bottom of Y Gantry? i think that wil be a little hard to get it perfectly leveled :/

    Read from here if you want to see all the troubles and experiments #84. Or jump directly to #121 to #126 to see how to be done properly on any size machine. There is no escaping buying the West System epoxy with the slow hardener. If you read all you will see i tried other epoxies with poor result.

    Then you have to download the technical sheet of West System 105 resin and 209 hardener, understand all details and search for similar stuff there. Or buy from USA. I bought from UK, in Spain it was veeery expensive
