CNC Router

This is a CNC machine I built during 2014. This particular model is called eShapeoko and is based on another machine called Shapeoko. The router is particularly suited for machining in soft materials like wood and plastic.

The base

The base for the CNC is built from 22 mm MDF. My intention was that the base should double as an electronics compartment. I designed it like a drawer with an integrated air cooling channel.

The air cooling channel design is explained in the picture below. The blue arrow shows where the cold air is coming in and the red arrow shows where the warm air is exiting the drawer.

Time for some paint!



Test drive!

For the very first test drive I used a pen instead of the router to draw some shapes.

Klart å betart! :)
