    May I ask why you went with 700 vs 1000 and a belt powered Z axis?

    It can more than double the existing z-axis mounting weight allowance.
    You can mount heavy spindle.

    Inhan, nice build !!
    I just purchased a bunch of parts from the OB store to build a larger (1k * ~800) C-Beam Machine. I like your design and would look into perhaps building the rovo instead.
    I don't see the Y-axis gantry plates in the parts list. will you be sharing those .skp files ?

    I downloaded the rovo cbeam 1000x1000.skp (last night before I posted my comment) but I was not able to separate the plates from the overall machine so I can size them and print on paper first; Just now learning to use Sketchup.
    Will I be able to do do this with Sketchup ?

    Yes, Sketchup is the perfect tool for doing that. A great plugin to go from Sketchup model to 1:1 paper print is GK Postscript Plot.. I have a video on how to use it here.


    also please find attached the sketchup file of the y-axis plate by it self and a 1:1 scale printer ready (a4 paper ) image set you can print off of the y-axis plate.

    Kyo... BIG thanks for your help; Big time saver for me as I decide wether to build the C-Beam Machine or go with rovo style fixed bed system.

    BTW: Saw your c-beam videos this past weekend and sub to your channel. Great job on those, clear and to the point.

    Thanks...

    Inhan, I've looked at the Y-Axis gantry plates that Kyo extracted from your .skp file and have a question for you;
    I see from your parts list that your build calls for 16 eccentrics, so I would think that these plates would use 3/plate (at least) but I can't see the wells on either side of the plates.
    Can you clarify this for me... Thanks

    I'm also looking at building this machine just like clovenedhoof I'm wondering how accurate the parts list is. I'm new to CNC, and never built a CNC machine before this one looks very appealing to me because it uses lead screws and has a fair size milling area. It seems that the 'Y-axis gantry plates' are missing in the parts list as Jose Martinez Jr mentioned.

    Would I have to find someone with a CNC machine to make these (Y-axis gantry plates) for me?

    Also are there any other parts missing from the list?
