    Lots of fun watching and chatting with everyone. Reminds me of the Phlatboyz chat days ;) always a good time.
    Well I have to say I think that is being a bit optimistic as there is still much to do, but hey if he can do it that would be awesome!:thumbsup:

    I think it will really depend on how long he is willing to run the stream and/or how much he does off camera.

    That being said I really don't think @KirkwoodWorking will have it done tonight to the point that he has all the electronics up and going. I do think he could have everything in the build manual complete

    When all mechanics is assembled, all electronic connected and motors move for first time it is still a long time before first useful cutting is done.
    I've assembled and designed a lot of machines and I know when real "fun" begins :)
    I hope Mark gave him settings file for this machine. If not then we can expect day 4.

    It is alive!! @KirkwoodWorking completed the C-Beam Machine XLarge and had 2 test cuts. If you'd like to see the electronics portion or even the entire build check out twitch.tv/kirkwoodworking/profile

    Special thanks to all of the OpenBuilds members that came out for live chat. Many of you were able to help Brady along and we really had a blast. Thanks @Joe Santarsiero , @FireHaus , @lord_drachenblut , @semperfikurt @Mark Carew , @Tinker, @PlanetCNC Andrej and everyone that I missed!

    PlanetCNC provided the controller and the software. Amazingly easy. Brady was a first timer and got up and running in a very short time.

    The community came together again

    Hey guys, #BlackFriday C-Beam Machine XLarge bundle is at it's LOWEST PRICE EVER. If you've been planning to build this awesome machine, be sure to shop early as the sale is limited to what we have in-stock.

    Hey all, Better late than never, but the live build replays are starting to be uploaded onto Youtube!

    Here are all the parts, it is about 8 hours all together, with a little creative editing to get around some pesky youtube/song issues, but all the steps are there!

    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3
    Part 4

    Hope it helps!
