Question #: 10094

Question: Do you offer custom sized machines? I am looking for a 5'x5' version.

Current Solution

Most of our CNC machines have the ability to be customized by length. The greenBull 5X for instance comes standard at 5' x 10' but it is really only the gantry width that is fixed. The length can be easily altered. If you are interested in receiving a custom quote, you can email sales@buildyourcnc.com.

  • what options can you offered to international customers to assist in them building one of your machines? International shipping of a kit would be too expensive.

    We are able to ship internationally but unfortunately we cannot control the shipping costs incurred for international customers. However, if you are associated with educational programs or Makerspaces and/or Fab Labs we do offer certain discounts in some cases. Please send an email to customer service for more information on receiving a quote.

  • I am looking for a 4'x4'x8" cnc machine kit... do you carry something like this?

    Yes, our greenBull is the best machine to exhibit those dimensions. The 8" z-axis travel can be achieved by making sure that the table and bed of the machine will built with a depression that lowers the work are to the desired travel and clearance depth.

  • Do you offer a touch plate kit? If not can a touch plate kit be added to your machines if so whats the process?

    Yes, you can add a touch plate kit. A touch plate works just like a limit switch. All you need are alligator clips and a conductive plate. Solder a wire to the conductive plate material and connect that to an IN (input) terminal. Connect the alligator clip to the gnd of the input and then to the end mill. Enable the home setting for the Z axis in Mach3 or Mach4 and use the "ref all home" button to home all of the axes. The z axis will home at the touch plate. Make sure that the touch plate is under the end mill when the z-axis is in the homing process.

    Here is a tutorial I made a while ago that explains this:

  • what do you mean by Kits , are they complete machines ready for use or prototypes to be followed?

    Our kits include all of the parts needed to put a whole working machine together. However, understand that the kits are quite advanced and require a good level of mechanical competence to be completed correctly. We offer assembled machines for those that can't assemble these machines due to their complexity and need for fastening the overall components in a way that there is good smooth and tight motion, minimizing backlash to the fullest.

    We do have a few kits that you need to supply the table which include the greenBull 4x,5x and 6x, and the blackFoot. The tables would be far to large and heavy to ship. Our greenBull Kit is our best selling machine. All of the other machines are all inclusive.

  • Do you have customers/builders in the Netherlands who I can ask for help or assistance?

    I would recommend creating a post in our forums page (buildyourtools.com), and ask any specific questions there! Since there might be someone willing to help you locally!

    Since we cannot disclose any customers contact information, without there permission! Going through the forums will be the best idea to be able to find someone locally, with one of our machines!

    Also you can contact us directly at customerservice@buildyourcnc.com

  • I am looking for a lead screw with a 4mm lead, at least 4 starts and 36" in length, can you help me out?
  • Can I get building plans for the machines, electronics and programming?

    The available options for the blackFoot, is only structural components with hardware, and structure components/hardware with electronic components.
    However we currently do not have any plans available for public use/distribution.

  • I am wondering if you also supply plans for the bigger machines, also the vertical CNC that you have in your product range?

    The only plans we sell for any machine, are the ones that relate to the book we create found here, http://www.buildyourcnc.com/Book.aspx

    Here is the link to those plans that we sell, http://www.buildyourcnc.com/cnckitintro.aspx

    We do not sell any other plans, only full kits, with or without electronics.

  • Would any of your CNC laser machines be appropriate for welding of thermoplastic materials?

    That is a good question. We have not tried to weld thermoplastics using our CO2 Lasers. It is possible since the laser outputs a heat source and at the right intensity and speed, the thermoplastic can be heated and melted rather than instantaneously vaporized and off gassed. I have done research to see if CO2 laser can weld thermoplastics with positive results.

    Our CO2 lasers are typical of other laser cutters on the market, so if their literature, or examples you have found, successfully weld thermoplastics, then ours will probably be able to as well.

    In some cutting test with different speeds and intensities, the kerf has welded back together; however, this was caused by an unintentional process rather than an intentional one.

  • DO YOU HAVE BLACKTOE MACHINES WITH TABLES READY TO GO OR HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE MAKE ONE?

    Yes, we have the optional table for the blackToe, but we need to fabricate it, which only takes one day. We generally reserve one week for the total fabrication and packing of all parts.

  • I am looking for a schematic to wire a C10 BoB to a KL430 driver.

    CP+ to COM
    CP- to STEP
    CP+ to CW+ (small jumper wire)
    CW- to DIR

    Additional Information:
    If the driver does not have CP or CW labels, the CP is Step and the CW is Direction or DIR. If you connect the 5v to CP+ (or Step+) and CW+ (or DIR+) and the pin to CP- (or Step-) and another pin to CW- (or DIR-), then in software, the configuration for the step on that axis must be active low. Otherwise, if you connect the GND to CP- (or Step-) and CW- (or DIR-) and the pin to CP+ (or Step+) and another pin to CW+ (or DIR+), then in software, the configuration for the step on that axis must be active high.

    Additional Information:
    If you have a driver that is labeled pul, dir and ena: Pul+ is the Step+ and Pul- is the Step-. Pul is short for pulse. A pulse will create a step. Don't worry about the enable terminals.

    On the x-axis, pin #2 can go to pul- and pin #3 can go to dir-. The 5v will go to pul+ and dir+. The configuration for each axis for step will be active low and toggle active low for the dir on each axis to make it go in the direction desired.
