    Hello everyone, I'm a sales from HSG Laser, hope to learn more here.
    and if you are interested in our machines, maybe we can have a talk!

    I am thinking about building some custom bumpers and currently assembling my first CNC plasma cutter. This is just a hobby for me.

    Hi all,

    Damien from Australia here. I just purchased my first CNC machine (ebay 3020 4axis) and am keen to start mastering the steep, and seemingly endless, learning curve of CNC'ing.

    Looking to build small aluminium molds with my 3020 to use in my homemade injection molding machine.

    Re: Welcome thread-tell us about you.

    Personally, I built a small laminated wood CNC eight years ago. Last year by Craciun, Santa Claus brought me a metallic CNC machine, Kompass 1000. Generally, I made printed circuits for electronics on both, but also a few small objects made of plastic, wood and corian.
    Good luck to everyone.

    Re: Welcome thread-tell us about you.

    Hi,

    My husband and I are have been working with sublimation and laser engraving for a while, and have decided to jump (head first) into the CNC world. I'm reading and observing as much as I can to understand the machining world. It's fun and exciting. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here. If I don't screw them up too badly, I'll post a few pics of completed projects.

    Re: Welcome thread-tell us about you.

    Built my first CNC between March and August of this year. Have NEVER built anything like this before. Know NOTHING about electronics. Basically I used the old JGRO blueprints and got it put together pretty easily. I've been practicing using the device and getting better and better at it. Bought Mach 3 to control everything. Main two problems I'm having are...

    1. I keep breaking motor couplings. Especially the Z drive if I use the spring based coupling, it slowly extends over time and ends up twisting up. If I use the kind with the "teeth" that slide together, it starts sliding apart and eventually just falls. trying to figure out what to do on this one. Thinking Z axis assembly may be too heavy made out of MDF, may try building one out of aluminum.
    2. Every once in a while, for no reason, one of the axis will start going in the same direction no matter what direction single you send it. Have ruined so many pieces because of this, and it's driving me crazy. Not persistent, just out of the blue, and then it's all fine for a week or so.

    Any guidance is appreciated!!

    Hey Ken,
    Aluminum z holder would be a lot better than MDF. I know what your talking with the screw couplings. I ruined one myself when the z buried in the wood. As for the axis, are you running individual drivers or are they built onto one board? USB or Parallel? If they are individual, most likely they are overheating. I had the same problem on mine. What I did was take an old computer case with a front fan. Gut the case, and bolt all your electronics in that. Keep the power supply from the case as you will need this for the fan. Also, you can use the power supply from the case to power your boards. The power supply will supply 24 volts DC, just do a google for computer power supply outputs. Take the +12 (red wire) and the -12 (blue wire) and you can run a spindle off it or your electronics. Welcome to the world of CNC.

    Hi,
    I'm new to the CNC router world. No previous experience at all, not even with software. I'm looking to buy a CNC router by January and I wanted advice on my purchase. It will be for a hobby/possible small business. Interested in making signs, small furniture, home decor etc. My budget is going to be around $4,000. I prefer a larger bed size maybe 4x4, and prefer easy as possible software as I am just starting out. Thanks in advance

    Re: Welcome thread-tell us about you.

    Hi all. New member/old guy here. Looking to start a small business from my home as I'll be 60 soon and my retirement plan basically consists of dropping dead at my current job. I just received my Carbide3D Nomad which is sitting in a box on the living room floor. We are converting the guest room into a small work/office this week and the Nomad is my first machine. Since it is in my living quarters, which I rent and also has to double as an occasional guest room I opted for the Nomad to test the waters. It has a small footprint, seems reasonably quiet and is enclosed. Let's see how it goes.

    I joined the forums here to learn what I could and maybe try out some of the test files I see people have posted.

    All the best,

    Burt
