Figured I might as well make this it’s own thread.
Tested the first prototype of the stepper mount today

Mt.AssCool! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while. How did you make it?
Ive been playing around with making stuff with carbon fiber and would like to use a cnc/router for mold making.
ReturnToMonkeyThis has been sick and all, but I didn't realize how young you were! That makes it way more badass. Keep it up man can't wait to see the finished product.
HypeBeastDid you make one yourself cuz they're too expensive? Looks super complicated. Nice job
Phil-X-What are you going to be using it for?
ThegenericskierMy goal for my router is to be able to make functional metal parts
Phil-X-Nice, Im assuming youll need to be using sheet? Whats your max Z?
Thegenericskierhaven't fully determined max Z, but im assuming it will be 6 inch max. might do some sheet metal stuff but i would love to cut metal into 3D parts.
ReturnToMonkeyMini monkey statues?
ThegenericskierWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 1 and a half months of CAD and we are done!
cypherslooks great dude keep us updated on the build!
Caveman.What are you using for a controller?
WormracerYoooo! Get me in boss.
ThegenericskierThis project has been placed on hold until further notice. ETA is currently unknown on when I get my machined parts back. Until then I have nothing to do.
cypherscan you 3d print some of the parts to do a fit check? idk just thinking of stuff you can do in the meantime
whitenabloving this thread. Hyped to see it come together.
Why did you decide to design & build it yourself instead of looking for an existing option?
ThegenericskierWell my router wrote my name and some circles. Only reason they’re wobbly is because it was zip tied on
mrk127Aye that’s hype you got the tool path working. What’s your estimated cost on this project? Also great looking CAD models
dolanslebensraumIs this thing programmable?
thats pretty awesome. Do you save alot of money building it yourself as opposed to buying a complete unit?
jompcockMill some tech bindings
mrk127Nah mill your own Cast plates
