STLCutter 2 - Preliminary work
While uploading a YouTube video of the original STLCutter, I found a number of other DIY CNC milling machines there - and found one that I liked. So, I used its ideas for my design.
The design goals were:
The design looked like this:
I was planning to use an existing Z-axis mount for the router (this wasn't actually done due to a number of reasons).
There would be enough space for a slighly taller foam block
The bottom board (made out of MDF) would be supported by a cross-frame, and also supports at the end.
The over-long X-axis would give extra stability for the Y-axis frame.
Oh, and the design on which it's based is this one.
