  • What is the bill of materials included in the build your own laser 2' x 4' 40 watt

    The general bill of materials for the blackTooth 24"x20" laser system is as follows:

    - The structural components (MDO and Plastic parts)
    - The hardware to assemble all of the structural and mechanical parts
    - Mechanical parts like v-groove bearings, bearings for shafts, shafts, pulleys, belts, etc.
    - All of the motion electronics like motors, drivers, and laser controller
    - Wire to connect all of the electronics
    - All of the laser components including the laser tube, mirrors, mirror mounts, nozzle and lens
    - Pneumatic components including the air pump and tubing
    - Hydraulic components to cool the laser tube including a water pump and tubing

  • 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.

  • What size forstner are used in the book build your own cnc

    That was a very long time ago, but I think I was using 3/4". You can use a size just larger than the outer width of the nut.

  • Having issues with my cnc router constructed with your materials.

    Please be very specific on what issue you are having.

    Is this the scratch build machine? It is a machine kit that you purchased from us?


    Having issues with my cnc router constructed with your materials.
    1.) Machine is calibrated with a precision six foot steel scale at 30” measurement and appears to be right on the dimension under no load condition.

    2.) When cutting a test program of a rectangle Y 12” x X 6” the final cut dimensions are:
    X = 5.946 (-.054) short and Y = 11.900 (-.100) short.
    This is a chain drive machine using your small chain stock.
    Can chain tension be part of the issue or am I missing something????
    Have made several cuts with reduced feed and depth of cuts. No change in errors……
    Best regards.

    This is a machine of my own design that I built using your electronics package purchased in 2010. Including your five start Z axis lead screw and your small chain with spur gears package for the x and y axis. this machine is designed to fit that floor space of my shop. Last year I sent you folks a photo of the unit. It has hardened steel X,Y and Z rails not the aluminum rails that you offer. it is also made from Baltic Burch 3/4" plywood.

    When cutting a test program of a rectangle Y 12” x X 6” the final cut dimensions are:
    X = 5.946 (-.054) short and Y = 11.900 (-.100) short

    There is a dimensional discrepancy from programmed dimension and the actual cut dimension???? what could cause this issue????
    please refer to data supplied........... thanks.

    will be traveling to San Antoine this pm but will try to answer any follow up question after the first of the year.

    Happy New Year to all.

  • I couldn't find any information about how to mount the "z-axis lead screw in the book" (Build Your Own CNC)

    The details will differ depending on the type of lead screw you use.

    For allthread lead screws, you will need the 1/2" square nut, 1/2" allthread lead screw, two 1/4" screws and nuts to hold the square nut in place, two 1/2" ID bearings, two standard 1/2" nuts, and one coupling hub.

    Attach the square nut to the nut support using the two 1/4" screw and nuts. The bearings will need to be inserted into the seats of the lower and upper part of the z-axis. Insert the lead screw through the top bearing. Use one of the standard 1/2" nuts and start threading it on the allthread screw just below the bearing. Lower the lead screw to the square nut and start to screw the lead screw into the square nut. Continue until the screw is near the lower bearing. Add another standard 1/2" nut to the screw and keep turning the screw until the screw just passes the lower bearing. Add the coupling hub to the top of the screw just above the upper bearing. Turn the lower and upper standard 1/2" nuts until they are snug against the bearing. If the standard 1/2" nuts become loosened, consider adding another nut to each end against the existing nut to keep them in place.

    For 1/2" acme 5 start lead screws, you will need to use an antibacklash nut in place of the square nut. This nut attaches with a flange using two #8 screws and nuts. The standard 1/2" nuts are replaced by clamping collars.

  • in your book - Build you own CNC Machine. Can I use 9/32" thick bearing instead of 1/4" thick?

    As long as the bearing has a minimum thickness of 1/4" and 9/32" is a bit thicker, there will be no problem with the book build using the bearing that is 1/32" thicker. There is actually more surface area which is better.

  • Why is BuildyourownCNC selling outdated Planet CNC USB controllers?

    We will be deprecating these controllers soon and recommend our mach3 USB boards instead. Planet-CNC is a good CNC control program, however, the boards that we offer was designed in-house to feature a more compact design, but the boards on the Planet-CNC website is more feature filled.

  • I have the build your own CNC kit 3 Axis CNC Machine 2008, were can I get the Gcode or vector files for it ? I wanted to have it laser cut
  • I'm new to CNC and just finish building my router.I need software for my post processor and not sure if your product is what I need?

    You will need a CNC software that will control your router cnc machine, and your design CAD/CAM software will need to know the CNC software you plan on using so the post processor in the CAM software can create the g-code for the CNC control software. So if you have for example, Mach 3 and our parallel breakout board, you can use the Mach 3 post processor in your design software.
