### Question #: 14849

Question: [4'x8' Vertically Oriented CNC Machine (greenLean) v2] could this be oriented 8'x 4'?

Current Solution

If you wanted this machine to be oriented (8'x4', or 8 feet up and down, and 4 feet side to side) so that the machine is effective in portrait orientation, the machine would be about 10 feet, tall. Also, the gantry would be too heavy to maintain its position without a heavy counterweight.

• I WOULD BE USING THIS MACHINE IN FIJI. MDF DELAMINATES OVER TIME HERE. HOW PROTECT THE FROM DELAMINATION?

I WOULD CONSIDER USING A BOARD MADE OUT OF CLOTH AND RESIN AND IS USED IN ELECTRICAL AREAS AS AN INSULATOR. IT IS USUALLY A DARK RED/BROWN IN COLOR AND COMES IN DIFFERENT SIZES. IT IS VERY STRONG AND HEAVY. I DO NOT RECALL THE NAME OF IT, BUT POWER COMPANY LINEMEN HAVE ACCESS TO IT AS IT IS USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE AREAS.

I FOUND A LINK FOR YOU TO SEE WHAT I AM DESCRIBING. HERE IS THE LINK.. www.electricalinsulationmaterial.com

Response:
Currently our machines are made out of MDO (Medium Density Overlay) plywood, and are used in the construction industry for cement forming. They come lightly coated for moisture protection. Some possibilities for protecting the machine could be:
Painting the structural parts with a oil based paint
Coating the structural parts with a protectant sealant (polyurethane)

Please try to avoid getting any coating or paints on the steel components.

• do you offer a 4' x 4' solution?

Depending on the specific kit, we can adjust the length of rails that are included with the kit to fit a 4' x 4' cutting area.
Specifically the blackFoot and the greenBull 4' x 8' machines will be a straight forward kit for a 4' x 4' cutting surface!

For custom size requests please email:
customerservice@buildyourcnc.com, for further assistance.

• CAN .7MM END MILL BE USE TO CUT 15MM MDF?

An end mill smaller than 1.5mm or 1/6" is too small a diameter for end mills to cut through materials that are thick. A good rule of thumb is if the end mill has a cutting length that is more than what you want to cut, that diameter will be acceptable.

• WHAT CAUSES THE SKY TO BE BLUE?

Sunlight reaches Earth's atmosphere and is scattered in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. Blue light is scattered in all directions by the tiny molecules of air in Earth's atmosphere. Blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time.

• IF YOU HAVE CIRCUIT (OR PICTURE) OF HOW THIS RELAY IS CONNECTED TO THE ROUTER
• HOW CAN THE ROUTER BE CONTROLLED BY COMPUTER?

The parallel breakout board has a relay that can turn the router on and off according to the control software in the computer. The router will turn on automatically prior to the machine moving (a time frame can be set so the router is up to speed). When the machine is finished and is not moving, the router automatically turns off. This is with the m3, m4, and m5 codes in the g-code.

If you are interested in the USB breakout board, you will need to get an independent relay board.

• 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.

• WHICH TRAVELERS ARE RECOMMENDED TO BE VACCINATED?

Healthcare providers should vaccinate any person who failed to get vaccinated in the previous vaccination season and who wants to reduce their risk of acquiring influenza during their upcoming travel, particularly if they are at high risk for influenza-related complications. This includes persons who are traveling to the tropics, traveling with organized tourist groups at any time of year, or traveling to the Southern Hemisphere during April-September.

• DO NEED TO SQUARE UP THE MACHINE AND IF SO YOU HAVE INSTRUCTIONS OR VIDEO FOR THIS?

The eyebolts are used in the squaring of the machine. I would use a standard carpenters square and first run the end mill along the edge of the square to first make it parallel with the long axis. Then run the end mill along the other edge with the short axis and adjust the eye bolts and chain according to the angle that the machine is out of square.
