I still in the ordering phase and i have not printed anything yet.
The cnc can have lot of possible configurations and i have lots of questions because i not sure what to order.
I have good experience in building 3d printer but zero in cnc…
-I want to build the cnc to be able to work aluminium and have an build volume of 500mm x 500mm. can some one tell me if is necessary to buy some specific hardware ?
-I from Portugal, so planning to build the IE version. What is the best metallic tube to use?
-Is there are an dimension calculator for the IE version?
-What is the best bearing options: 608zz or 608-2rc ?
-Nema17 motor of 1.7A with 1/32 strepper (drv8825) have enough power to work aluminium? Is necessary to use nema23?
-Is there are some good opensource “sliding” software to use with the cnc? in 3d printing i use cura, but for the cnc must be different, what are the options?
