    Re: Concrete VMC

    Are you still going to use concrete for the rest of it?

    I just love the way you've made the steel work so far. I wonder what would happen if you continued in the same building style for the rest of it and made it out of steel?

    I'm sure whatever you do will be fantastic.

    Sounds great, keep us updated as you have time! Very intrigued by this machine. I have no idea what heat stress relieving costs, I guess I need to make some calls! Love the laser cut design. And I'm also curious about the pros and cons of using concrete like you are planning and continuing with steel as Nic77 suggests. Anyways, looking forward to seeing your progress. Cheers

    Time for an update, Steel have been milled down to size. Also the mounting block for the bed and linear rails is done. Putted everything to gather to see how it fits and i can tell you really nice
    Next step will be making an nut bracket so i can test the servo motor and see how it moves.
    Enjoy the pic's

    Nice. What are the bellows made from? Own design / build or something purchased?

    Outstanding. Be interested in hearing your thoughts/ideas on the concrete, forms and rail attachments.

    Re: Concrete VMC

    just a small update, if you can call it like that.. Project is currently on a dead page. haven't done anything on the design.
    I do have a small movie of the first movemenst on the X axis this is at max rpm of the servo. So it should be around 15m/min.
