DIY CNC Machine on Certiflat Welding Table Part 8: First Cuts running G Code Mach 3


Well there you have it, it’ll cut I I Spared you guys some of the Final assembly of this stuff, it was all pretty simple same theory on the z-axis servo motor drilled and tapped four holes into this Z-axis plate about this CNC router parts spindle mount I wanted to get it running so I could use the machine to help me build The you know come upcoming pieces some parts for the machine You know like the cable track and all that stuff, I just used broomstick real quick to get the wires out of the way and Still kind of limited on the Mach 3 I have the free version, so I’m limited to 500 lines so hence the roadrunner not being complete so that’s still learning process for me as well and So I think in the next video I’m going to be using that craftsman tool chest there to build a build a CNC podium, I guess you would call it put all my computer components in that and wiring and Step drivers and all that stuff, so thanks for watching

  1. Looking good. I'm in the process of switching from mach3 to uccnc, which is to say I've bought a uccnc license but haven't gotten around to actually trying it out.

  2. What a disappointment. I was expecting some metal working, cutting, welding. These toy routers are less than a dime a dozen. Jeez

  3. Time to replace that router with a watercooled spindle. It's way more quite. Doesn't blow dust everywhere, much stronger and more options for bigger tooling. Then you can move onto cutting aluminum and really fab up some cool parts.
    Like mentioned, the option to change and add on a plasma cutter will give you the best of both worlds.
    Don't fret on your machine being a "toy." There is a ton of options just having a 3 axis setup at your finger tips. Add a 4th axis and you can do what others wish they could. Skies the limit.
    Again… good job on the build! It only gets better from here.
