CNCGear is a concept, an idea born from exposure to, and use of many, many different CNC designs including the Workbee, Lead CNC, X Carve and more. The lessons learned from each of those machines have been applied to this design, the CNCGear concept to make designing and building a CNC kit as easy as possible.
Designed to accept M8 bolts for wheel sets
Utilises TR12 (12mm) Lead Nuts
Accomodates Limit Switches
Suitable for many variations of attachment
6mm Thick Aluminium
Powder coated for resilience to wear
Using this plate an entire series of actuators can be joined to form single, 2 or 3 axis machines.
Below are just some ideas, starting off with a single, powerful actuator.
Use two CNCGear plates / two actuators to form a rigid 2 axis XY movement stage
XYZ Axes - Variation 1
Please note, ALL plates are black, they are shown in different colours here to highlight the plates and for reference purposes
