From the 25th - 28th September, some of the Ooznest team are at the TCT Show 2017. Due to this there will be some delays in answering phoncalls and emails. During this period the best way to contact us would be by email. However we promise to get around to everything, it just may take longer than usual. Thanks Ryan Lock - Ooznest.
A Hobby CNC Mill
My makers experience the same problem, when working on a new project they need custom plates. Getting these one-off plates made by a machine shop is usually way too expensive, with long waits. Owning a Hobby CNC solves this problem, A C-Beam Machine gives the freedom to the maker to manufacture custom parts out of wood, plastic or aluminium.
The C-Beam machines uses standard off the shelf Openbuilds v-slot parts. C-Beam linear actuators provide the motion on all 3 axes, these use ACME lead screws and anti-backlash nut blocks to provide accurate cutting. V-Slot extrusions are used throughout machine to build up the frame, and the ‘V’ profile is incorporated into all sides of the C-Beam linear rails. As standard parts are used throughout, it is directly compatible with nearly every v-slot part we stock, making it highly hackable and customisable.
A fully working and cutting C-Beam machine can cost less the £1000, which is relatively in-expensive, and the added freedom to make the parts you need yourself, owning this hobby CNC is sure to save you money in the long run.
A revolution is coming… one where our 2D thoughts are turned into 3D realities and where you have full control of your creative experiments, with a little help from an online expert community that loves to share what we do. Ooznest is a proud cog in that machine - supplying the 3D printing community with what they need to grow and thrive.
