Version 2

Version 2 – Rendering, showing the intended scaled of the machine (4 feet by 8 feet)

This version was intended to be able to CNC an entire sheet of four (4) by eight (8) foot MDF. Needless to say it’s core design and overall frame were not well thought out. Further this machine drive system was rack and pinion!

When the bill of materials was produced and the cost calculated, even in it’s incomplete state, the cost was staggering. One of the reasons for this was the use of the then patented 8020inc UHMW-PE linear slides. Needless to say, future designs would not be incorporating that particular product.
