If you’ve sent us an email in the last 24 hours, we may not have seen it due to some technical difficulties we are experiencing. In the interim, you can use our alternative email address email@example.com until we are back up and running on our firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Thanks for your patience. We’ll be checking email@example.com regularly so we’ll still be providing our great service while we track down the gremlins!
We are now stocking the Openbuilds new Xtreme Wheel range! This range was designed with strength in mind and is great for builds where heavy loads are required such as CNC routers and mills. Made from very hard polycarbonate material, these wheels will resist compression and wear due to the material’s strong nature, and in turn will lead to a better overall precision and strength in your machine.
Spent the morning wondering why my prints would not stick…. Then realised the scrap of filament I was using to test the printer was not PLA but ABS…. Ramp the bed up to 100c and the extruder to a 215 and bam here is the first successful print from our new printer!
After testing a few different spacer and precision shim combinations we have settled on a stack that will work well for a fully metric OX. I will mark the required length needed for the gantry bolts and trim them down tomorrow as my neighbours never like late night grinding….
First of all, thank you for visiting our website and liking our Facebook page! For those whose might be wondering, a CNC is a computer controlled cutting machine. There are various sorts of CNCs, e.g. laser cutter, 3D printer, milling machine, etc. CNC’s also come in a variety of sizes, from small desktop CNC’s to large commercial CNC’s used for cabinetry, signs and boat making. We are excited to start working on a desktop sized CNC Router, which can cut various materials, such as wood, […]
Welcome to CNCkits.co.nz – a place devoted to building your own fun! We stock a wide range of OpenBuilds parts, including the V-Slot linear rail system, to enable you to create your own tools and robots. Over the coming weeks, we will be posting updates of the desktop CNC engraver we are assembling, so make sure you come back and visit us to see the progress.
We’re excited to start work on our new machine! Parts have arrived and I must say, I really love how deep the red is on the Ox Plates. These Ox Plates were made by Robert Hummel and were sand blasted by myself before being anodised red. We will be uploading our progress over the coming weeks as we build a Desktop CNC Router. We’ll soon be selling as a complete kit for you to build your own!
