The CNC Build: Part 3

2018-07-20 04:06
In this final video of the CNC series I put the computer together and build the table. Last December, I moved the guts of my video editing computer to a smaller case in order to make a computer to run the CNC. I also built a new video editing computer. The wiring for the CNC is simple. I just ran a USB cable to a UC100 CNC Motion Controller. This connects to a Gecko G540 4-Axis Stepper Driver, which delivers power and pulses to the 4 Nema 23 motors. The table for the CNC is two layers of ¾ inch MDF. The first layer is attached directly to the steel base. This layer is then surfaced with the router making it perfectly plane with the CNC. A second layer of MDF goes on top of this base layer. I cut “T” slots in this to layer to attach hold downs to.
