  1. Liked and Subscribed… Worthy videos are hard to find. Glad I found this one.
    As a noob who has never had a chance to own equipment or software, and is doing everything academically, this is the next best thing to experiencing the savory moment when I will be able to experience this knowledge on-hand. – Thank you so much, good Sir!

  2. Good DAY friends.
    I have problems whit the alineacion of side and side of the gantry.
    Work, assemble machines with the same structure, only they have a table between the rails. My problem has been to align the rails on each side, to ensure parallelism and perpendicularity, preventing the gantry from crossing and stopping. The rails are located at a distance of 3 meters from each other. Know some technical and effective alignment system. So far I do it empirically with a tensioned steel wire.

  3. Hi there. I was wondering if you would be willing to help me with a couple of numbers.
    I have the rough idea of what your talking about but my brain freezes up when I try to make the
    rotary axis work. what would work best for you? thanks in advance. my cnc is the avid cnc 48 by 48
    thanks steve

  4. I have watched your video many times just for the math. I was able to get mine built and I did a video on the build and the programming and running the job. I wanted to thank you personally for haveing this video as it was my inspiration to do the 5th axis for years.

  5. The easiest way would be:
    Use 1 profile and add a switch "4 pole 2 throw toggle"(cheap) it has 12 pins. 4 center pins goes to the driver. 4 outer (each motor) pins to the motors, calibrate for rotary axis only… calibration don't really matter, axis Y (the table) is only needs to move over the rotary. then flip the switch. Add a plug to the rotary axis, you can unplug it & put it away when not being used

  6. Thank you for sharing. I learned a lot. I already have a CNC router but I don't have a 4th axis. I think I will be buying one soon. this is good info form me. Like you said, there was no one website that explains from start to finish, you have to find each sections. You explained a lot of it. Thank you,

  7. Material Diameter: 70 mm , Length : 145 mm ,

    Step Motor : 1.8 Degrees , 4.9A ,15.87 W , 200 Step

    Reduction Gear : 140 revolution/min , [ 1/10 ]

    Please help me ? , I did as you showed but I could not reach the result..I should calculate StepsPer , Velocity , Accerlation ..
    When I write the values obtained as a result of the calculations we made with you, when I make the material take a full tour, it does not come back to the point where it started.
