Thanks for the thoughts on mounting the VFD to the gantry. I had kinda thought about those items as well, the main driver for me was actually 3 phase switching noise caused by the VFD. I use double shielded VFD cable but at these high frequencies (300 - 400Hz AC at 2.5khz switching) there can be alot of noise that causes interference elsewhere in the home. Anyway I have scrapped the idea in favor of wall mounted.
Finally some updates on the machine.
X axis motor mount plates (laser cut) and servo motor mocked up.
Long ballscrew mocked up for bracket design
Also made some good headway on the electrics. Still cant get CSMIO to connect so will have to contact them here soon but Im a bit of time away from needing it.
