SolidWorks CNC Design

So over the last few weeks, I have decided to design and build a CNC for future projects and this is the design I have come up with.

I have used a design I don’t see too often within the DIY CNC builders and this is where the x-axis is raised to the y reducing the height of the y-axis.

originally was going to do the build out of steel but decided aluminium extrusion would be an easier material to work with.

Design to be Completed in the not too far future.

Future part to Design in SolidWorks.

So what’s left to design on the CNC mainly the z-axis is left to complete that includes the spindle motor too! complete the y-axis this is not far from being complete and the CNC bed again not far from completion.
