    New to cnc routers, looking for some help. I would like to but a good machine size to be 4x4 or 4x5 from what some have told me mach 3 is the best software to run. I would like to know if someone could help me out with a complete list of parts I would need to put one together. I don't need a PC just the cnc router parts everything to complete the job. I have looked all over open builds and all the ones I have seen don't see all the parts, if someone has some time it would be great if you could help me thanks.

    When you look at a build, click on the parts list tab. You can make pretty much any one of them the size you want by increasing the length of the X and Y beams. These two have detailed build manuals and videos: OpenBuilds OX CNC Machine and C-beam Sphinx
