Nice video’s Kelly, I was wondering how you were getting on a few day’s ago as you keep up a frenetic pace and hadn't posted for a while.

Thanks Dave. I've been using CB quite a bit but when I run into a problem I just figure it out or work around it as opposed to bothering the forum folks. When I build the control system for the new machine, I suspect you could see some questions.

Best,
Kelly

Kelly,
Let me ask you a favor to NOT do that when you have problems.  Even if you do solve it yourself, please present your problem and your findings here, so we can all learn from your exercises.

CamBam is so rich with combinations of features that it's hard to know how they all interact all the time.  Some of the features even work differently at different times, depending on the circumstances.

Getting started on CNC?  In or passing through my area?
If I have the time I'll be glad to show you a little in my shop.

Got my Y and Bed beams ground and rail lands machined on the Gantry Beam. The steel bed beams are just 2x4x1/4 & Y Rails 2x8x 1/4. My bud's shop has all kinds of surface grinding equipment. These are by far the straightest things in my shop and could be my primary standard straight edges. I have ground 1/2" MIC 6 plate for the bed surface. I also have 2x4 stock for the legs and plenty of steel for a sturdy base. Guess I'll have to get on with ordering steppers, controller, and building it out. I have a zillion mounting holes to drill and tap for the linear rails.

Best,
Kelly

Wow!  That's some NICE stuff.  Be careful drilling!  You only get ONE chance! <grin>
