This is my first CNC build. The Sea-OX is a machine built out of four C-Beams. I plan to have a Y length of 1000mm and a X length of 500mm. The Z is still being figured out. I plan on using my 3D Printer to build a small subset of parts so I can correctly design the plates and figure out the rod/beam lengths.

ooznest OX CNC Machine
The ooznest OX CNC Machine Kit is based on the OX CNC Machine designed by Mark Carew, and it incorporates many upgrades from this community. The plate designs in our kit are based on the originals. However we have added our own touches to increase the performance and design of the machine. To complement Mark's build videos, we have made a complete written instruction manual, with IKEA'eske assembly diagrams.
