So I decided to go ahead and build a MechMate instead of designing my own cnc router. Atleast for now. Because I dont really know all the in's and out's of CNC. I figured I would build a MechMate and learn from it. I'll design my own after I have learned all I need to know. The MechMate is the closest thing to what I wanted design wise so this is why I chose it. Plus the plans are free and the designer will walk you through the build process Smart man So here's my first post: cvriv_mechmate_001_05-23-2009 Hi Here are ALL of the modeled MechMate profiles cut and bent 1020451PC.dxf 1020452PC.dxf 1020456PA.dxf 1020457PA.dxf 1020458PA.dxf 1030422PD.dxf 1030450PG.dxf 1030455PB.dxf 1040372PA.dxf 1040387PA.dxf 1040432PF.dxf 1040434PD.dxf 1060215PB.dxf 1060315PA.dxf 1060325PA.dxf M130332PA.dxf M510312PB.dxf M510314PB.dxf M510322PC.dxf M510324PA.dxf M610115PB.dxf M610116PB.dxf So yea. These were made to specifcation using the DXF file's that come with the MM plans. Imperial thicknesses and metric dimensions. I have to make tiny alteration here and there so I could get the parts to bend within the software. No biggy. I am going to start modeling the rest of the components now. I think all the remaining components are actually made by the MM builder. After that I can finally assemble.
