    Hello,

    I'm very interesting to build a CNC router.
    Is it possible to drill and mill aluminium plate with it ?

    Thank you for your information

    Best regards,

    I would say "yes" *. So, what have you seen that catches your eye? Any examples you would like to build, to drill and mill?

    * The information you just gave us isn´t enough to give you a good answer, you need to do better than that, sorry.

    The main purpose of my CNC table should be to drill and mill different plates (PVC, wood, etc) and aluminium to (10mm depth max).
    Something like attached pictures.

    First and second picture I would say yes; you can build a reinforced OpenBuild Ox to do that if you have the skills for it (CNC Cookbook has good info to start with), the second picture you need an industrial machine to cut 10mm thick (2/5") material with that finish.
