After a few months of saving money, I finally got all the electronics for my CNC!
I purchased all the electronics from: http://buildyourcnc.com/electronicscombo.aspx
(3) 425 oz-in stepping motors
(3) Drivers (3.0Amp 24-40 Volts, 1-1/64 microstepping)
(1) 36v 8.8a Power Supply
(1) Breakout board
Then I built a box out of poplar and Plexiglas to house all the electronics:
Then I tried out the monitor shelf that I came up with in the last blog and I got a new monitor and the shelf was way too small:
I also got a new computer and needed somewhere to mount it:
So, I came up with this 2.0 version of my monitor shelf (bigger and better):
I also added a few switches to control the CNC:
The “Router and Shop Vac” switch controls this outlet that I wired up and plugged in the router and shop vac:
Then I got an E-Stop and limit switches from CNC4PC: (I still need to wire them up)
Here is a video of me wiring the electronics:
Thanks for Looking! Comments and questions are welcome!
