Bear CNC v8 router

Post by bor MC » Sun Mar 08, 2020 5:04 pm

I've been a big fan of the Buildbotics control box for many years and purchased one of the first available. Unfortunately it has taken that long to get my new design de-bugged and ready to test.

Bear CNC v8;

-Custom milled Racks with 3:1 Pinion drive X/Y
-Leadscrew drive Z axis
-4.5' x 8.5' cut capacity (6'x10' footprint)
-2.2 kw spindle and VFD
-Vacuum hold down plenum

Please check out https://www.facebook.com/Bear-CNC-23561 ... =bookmarks for a lot more info, pics, and vids.

This CNC was built to keep up and compete with larger more expensive machines we use at work and is the result of 10 years of design and fabrication of automated systems for clients.

I am very pleased with the BB control box as is but still need to see more usable features to make it truly competitive (such as programmable macros locations). All of which should be simple upgrades to the existing code for the smart folks here.

We did upgrade to a logitech F710 wireless gamepad without any problems. Check out the vids on FB for the tested range of operation.
