Question: WHAT CABLE LENGTHS SHOULD USE FOR THE BLACKFOOT CNC MACHINE

Current Solution

The blackfoot requires a total of 50 feet of cable.

The X axis needs 15 feet
The Y axis needs 17 feet
and the Z-axis needs 18 feet

These are 20 gauge 4 conductor cable.

• WHAT CABLE LENGTHS SHOULD USE FOR THE BLACKTOE

The motor cables for the blackToe are as follows:

WHAT CABLE LENGTHS SHOULD USE FOR THE BLACKTOE

• SHOULD I SELECT THE GREENBULL OR BLACKFOOT CNC MACHINE?

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)

• What precision do the CNC machine have, for instance the 12’’ x 36’’ x 3’’?

Our machine that matches those dimensions, the blueChick, uses roller chain for both X and Y axes, and a 1/2" 5 start 10 TPI lead screw for the Z axis. The precision is generally related to repeatability and we have not does extensive measurement of these tolerances. The resolution is set at better than 1000 steps per inch.
