WHAT ARE THE SHIPPING DIMENSIONS FOR GREENBULL?**WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS FOR GREENBULL TABLE?**Actual table dimension: 4'x8' is 56.078"x 121.50" (the overhang in the illustrations should be 3/4" thick)

To determine the frame dimensions, first consider using the frame height shown of almost 3' (2.86'). The width of the frame should be 4" narrower than the dimension from rail edge to rail edge (6X rail to rail is 80.078"). This will provide a 2" overhang on both sides (4X frame width should be 56.078").

The length of the frame should be 4" shorter than the desired length of the rails to provide a 2" overhang on both ends. The travel length will be 20" shorter than the rail length due to the space occupied by the gantry sides.

Two long pieces of 3/4" material will need to be placed on top of the frame with the 2" overhang on the sides and the end. These long strips of material will receive the rails and the chain mounts on the ends.

WHAT CABLE LENGTHS SHOULD USE FOR THE BLACKFOOT CNC MACHINE**WHAT MATERIALS CAN THE GREENBULL MACHINE CUT? LASER ETCH?**The Greenbull machine can cut a very wide variety of materials ranging from foam to aluminum. We recommend the use of our 2.2kW spindle to allow the greatest flexibility. Aside from that, the most important thing is to use an appropriate end mill for the material you are cutting and to use appropriate speeds and feed rates.

BYCNC Response:

Our 40W laser can cut up to about 1/4" materials ranging from wood and acrylic down through lighter materials such as leather, fabric, foam, etc. Speed and final cut are greatly enhanced by an air assist upgrade. We also offer an 80W laser which has approximately twice the capabilities of the 40W.**Click the link to add information to this solution:**

LASER ETCH?**WHAT DOES THE GREENBULL KIT INCLUDE AND DO I NEED TO INCLUDE?**The greenBull 4X comes with all of the components and electronics to assemble the gantry of the machine. You will need to build the table. We provide the rails and roller chain for the X-axis (along the length of the table for full 8 feet of travel). You will need to provide some wire to connect the electronics and a computer to run the machine. You will also need to purchase the software that you will need to run the machine that matches how you will apply the machine. We suggest the mach3 control program. The CAM program is up to you as there are many options out there.

CABLE LENGTHS FOR THE BLACKFOOT**WHICH MACHINE SHOULD I BUY, THE GREENBULL OR BLACKFOOT?**The greenBull can range is routing width sizes of 5 feet and 6 feet. The blackFoot has a 4 foot routing width.

Previous Solution:

The greenBull machine has a sturdier gantry than the blackFoot, so you can be more agressive with the cutting feedrate (cutting speed). The blackFoot is also a good machine, but it all comes down to the speed at which you want to produce the fabrication

The spindle is also highly recommended for it's quietness and easier cleanup (no fan blowing the dust in the air)**Click the link to add information to this solution:**

SHOULD I SELECT THE GREENBULL OR BLACKFOOT CNC MACHINE?**CAN THE GREENBULL CUT 18MM BIRCH IN ONE PASS?**If you use the 2.2kW spindle, it can cut at 3/4 inch or 19 mm deep with at least a 1/4" cutting diameter single flute end mill. You will get better results with larger diameter end mills, but that is the worst case scenario. I still recommend doing a finishing pass on the edge to make sure everything is perfect.

CAN THE GREENBULL CUT 18MM BIRCH IN ONE PASS?**IF I PURCHASE A GREENBULL 6X LONG Z CNC MACHINE KIT AND MACH3, WHAT ELSE WOULD BE REQUIRED TO ASSEMBLE THE WORKING MACHINE? HAVE CAD SOFTWARE.**You will need to build the table unit for your machine. There are instructions on how to do this at the bottom of the product page here, https://www.buildyourcnc.com/Item/cnc-machine-blackFoot-v4

There is no estimate on how much this will cost though, since there are too many variables involved to do this.

- PC with parallel port and USB port

- 20awg stranded wires for the motors - http://www.buildyourcnc.com/electronicscombo.aspx

- 18awg stranded wires for power supply to drivers

- 24awg stranded wires for breakout board to drivers

(location and spacing of components varies from one person to another, so we do not provide cables/wires)

- General purpose extension cord (cut the female end off) to provide power to power supply

- USB cable to power breakout board

- Parallel cable to communicate to breakout board

- Router

- (optional - instead of router) Spindle with power inverter http://www.buildyourcnc.com/SpindlesAndAccessories.aspx

- (if purchasing spindle with inverter) General purpose extension cord (240v) (cut the female end off) to provide power to power inverter

- End Mill(s) http://www.buildyourcnc.com/ProductsEndMills.aspx

- CAD, and/or CAD-CAM software (to produce geometry, machine operations, and g-code) http://www.buildyourcnc.com/CNCsoftware.aspx

- CNC control software (to read g-code and control machine) http://www.buildyourcnc.com/CNCsoftware.aspx

This answer is applicable to most of our machines with the exception of the greenLean and the blueChick since those machines are equipped with a table structure.**Click the link to add information to this solution:**
