Hi Everyone.
About 5 years ago I posted some renderings of my CNC Router Design (see http://forums.turbocad.com/index.php/topic,8349.msg48387.html#msg48387 ). Attached are renderings of the final design and a shot of the actual build. You can see video of it in action on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvKm1ncV6-M. Turned out pretty much as I had designed it apart from an error I made in the gantry width!

Enjoy!

Looks great,  thanks for the exploded view,  certainly looks built to last, a good stable bed and supported rails.

Thanks for your kind comments. Initially I thought it was overbuilt but now I'm glad to have taken the design advice from members of the UK CNC forum who were instrumental in saving me from making some expensive mistakes! The machine weighs over 100Kg (>220 lbs), has a 2.2Kw (3hp) induction, water-cooled spindle controlled by 3-phase variable frequency drive (VFD). Maximum feed rate 5000 mm/min

Regards
Mike

Thanks Henry for your comments. Also I must give credit to Don Cheake for his excellent tutorials and the "Tips" sheet which showed how to do exploded drawings - Thanks Don!

Thanks Dave - without TurboCad Pro Platinum it would have been so much harder to do this!
