    Hi There,

    I am looking to build my first OX CNC router. A friend of mine works at a machine shop and offered to mill the gantry plates for me free of charge. I sent him the .dxf drawings I found online, however, the drawings I found do not include dimensions. He needs those to be able to cut them I guess. I am lost as this is all new to me. Any idea on where to find these dimensions or if there are a better set of drawings that perhaps include dimensions? These are the drawings I found: FL3D OX CNC Plates by FutureLab3D – YouMagine

    Your advice and help is appreciated well in advance.

    Critical dimensions shown in the attached pdf. Mainly what is important is the spacing between the opposing rows of wheels. You should be able to scale everything else based on the dimensions given. These drawings are based on the V8.1 files found here: OpenBuilds OX CNC Machine | OpenBuilds
