I just ordered parts to start my set up.
4′ x 8′ x 4″ cutting dimensions
I want to be able to cut out wood, pvc, max 1/8″ stainless steel, hot/cold roll steel, aluminum, brass, and acrylic…
Currently rendered out my table framing and will get it fabricated out of 2″ x 2″ x .125″ Steel
All Joints are 2″ x 2″ x .125″ Steel and will be connected with an L angle that are 2″ x 2″ x .25″ and machined for 1/4-20 machine screws to hold tubes together in multiple locations.
I have currently ordered:
- Archim 1.0a
- Emergency stop
- Dewalt DWP611
- 1/8″ collet
- ball end 1/8″ stub
- low rider 2 cnc bundle
- lowrider 2 cnc printed parts 1″
- stainless steel rods
- All Flat Plates are being cut from 6061 aluminum
I don’t have much knowledge when it comes to cnc builds, but looking at all the schematics it looks doable.
Just not that good when it comes to wire management and calibration…
Please let me know if i am missing anything i need to be able to start

Can’t wait to see this build.
Normally I would say no chance of you cutting stainless but I have been proven wrong too many times, in the best way possible.July 2, 2019 at 9:46 pm #105046
I have solidworks 2017 and have taken the courses at a hawkridge facility, but didn’t get into any cam, software or firmware for cnc.. what books or videos would you recommend that’s needed as basics?July 3, 2019 at 9:42 am #105066
I suggest you keep CAD and CAM separate. Use estlcam it can take you very far and is extremely forgiving.July 14, 2019 at 9:41 pm #106137
