The BlackBee CNC takes an massive step in the performance of Openbuilds type CNC machines.
Buy once.. Buy the best. Is the motto for this kit because without any doubt this is the best kit in its class. We do not state that lightly, we have designed this kit to be the very best, the most rigid, and above all we have raise the bar very, very high for this kit and the class of CNC kits the kit has as competition.
Buy Once.. Buy the best... simply means, when you purchase the BlackBee CNC kit you receive everything that the other kits in the same class add on later.. don't add on later, buy included!
Unique out of the box thinking has allowed us to create the ultimate CNC kit in its class. Dynamic 12mm diameter Ball screw motion, with integrated ball screw mounts, the first ever to be made this way, coupled with 15mm HGH type linear rails, and an Anti-Twist mechanism built in and you have the most rigid CNC kit in its class right out of the box.
Comprising speed, rigidity and flexibility in a tough easy to build platform. The BlackBee CNc kit is designed to meet the ever-growing demands of the maker, enthusiast and small business that strive to create, share and innovate.
Small business small budget.. right?.. Not a problem with this kit, set at a price to encourage the professional hobby maker and small business to purchase. We can offer this kit as a production machine, professional capacity built in. Use 247 to enhance your business.
Machine harder, machine deeper, machine faster.

2 of HGR 1000mm linear rails sets for the Anti-Twist extrusion
Anti-Twist Tall Y gantry plates
Extra C-Beam for Anti-Twist, eliminates twist on the X axis completely

Taller End plates to allow full use of 250mm Z (normal use is around 50mm travel only)
X/Z Gantry linear motion drive
2 of Drag chain fixing plates
Complete base frame to support spoil board (not including spoil board), with 2 of rigidity plates for Y c-beams (stops the Y c-beams moving in or out, attaches to base to enhance rigidity)
Nema 23 motor mounts
Corner brackets to secure all extrusions in place
All hardware (bolts, nuts, washers etc) to assemble for all above
Please note Stepper Couplers are not included because we don't know what type of stepper motor you will use. The ball screw end diameter is 6.35mm / 1/4in.
