Thread: New Gantry Ideas
Hi Edd I mean the width ie the bed has a 8x4 bed i can only rout at 1000mm so i am losing 200mm of the sheet on the length i can pull the sheet through so this is not a problem. This is why im thinking of making a new gantry.
Now I'm with you.
If you changed the rails on top of the gantry to Hiwin type maybe this would allow the Z assembly to be made narrower so that the spindle would get nearer to the ends of the gantry.
Failing that it looks like the gantry needs to made wider and hence the rails that it runs on each side of the bed would have to be moved out.Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted
Yes i think your right so i am looking for a few design ideas for the gantry i was thinking of mounting the spindle to the front of the gantry.
