TopsCNC Heavy – Enorme CNC DIY Imprimée en 3D

By | February 15, 2020


After a first CNC… After more than one year of experimentations and try… After the first version of the TopsCNC… We dismantle everything… Here is the new TopsCNC Heavy Version ! Making V-Slot Let’s build X axis Then Y axis Assembly axis + Z axis 3D Printed T8 Nut to prevent loose Then electronic Tests in next video, Thanx for watching !

    Chapeau bas, belle machine, qui a l'air bien bien rigide ! Si tu peux, remonte ta défonceuse au maximum dans le collier de serrage Z afin de minimiser le couple sur le charriot Z, lié à l'usinage. Tu auras une précision encore meilleure.
    Bravo en tout cas et vivement les tests sur aluminium !!!

    I am halfway into the building process of your previous CNC model. Was there a problem that led you to change it for this new model?

    Awesome 💯 I think this is the best diy cnc that you can rebuild, because the construction is very solid and durable. Like this one 🎉

    Vu la solidité de la construction je me demande si mettre l'electronique de la makerfr (32 bits avec le joystick et la carte sd) ça rendrait pas l'ensemble encore meilleur. Point de vue mécanique (la tienne) je crois que c'est la meilleure que j'ai vu par contre.

    Hello, very nice project !! I have 2 questions:
    – with which CNC program do you work with the MAC
    – is there a list with the materials and the 3d print files?
    Thanks Michael

    Nice work. But is it really worth it? You made all the effort to make the super robust and rigid C-beam frame + double Y rails. But all this is supported and wasted by all these "plastic" parts. Wouldn't make more sense to make them aluminum one day? They seem to be the weakest link in whole this awesome and great build machine. It's like building a house foundation out of stones/rock – great – but use chewing gum to glue them…

    It is not much better to cast all the parts in aluminium ?better stability?

    This is like a work of art to me. I admire the ingenuity and appreciate the amount of time that went into this. Thanks for sharing with us. I've already got leadscrews and aluminum extrusions ordered and on the way. As soon as the plans are released, my Prusa will be busy printing for days. Keep on creating!

A quand pour l'utilisation de CNCjs et la création de projet en Gcode :-), j'ai hâte….

    I already feel so dumb seeing your solution to v-rail. I crawled throught the internet and try to find affordable v-rail in 2m quantities – no luck, 4 times the price of t-slot. Thank you for this video – I really don't know, why i haven't come up with that idea myself. I already own heavy 2020 t-slot. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    24 minutes d'accéléré qui ne donnent pas la mesure de l'énorme travail qui se cache derrière… Du bon boulot indubitablement. Un bémol cependant: la tenue dans le temps des pièces en plastique n'est pas garantie (déformation inévitable). Le chariot du spindle aurait gagné à être fait en alu massif, pas en plastique. La qualité de tout CNC, COMMENCE PAR LA RIGIDITÉ DES PIÈCES ESSENTIELLES, par l'équation simple:
    RIGIDITÉ = PRÉCISION ACCRUE. Il ne sert à rien de découper des pièces dont la précision reste ALÉATOIRE, IRRÉGULIÈRE, incertaine. Ce n'est pas le but du jeu, surtout à ce niveau d'ambition qu'est le vôtre… Ce que le plastique moulé ou imprimé est loin de garantir surtout si l'on va solliciter assez souvent et assez longtemps ces éléments. À moins que vous ne craignez pas de ré-imprimer au fur et à mesure certaines pièces… selon quels critères d'ailleurs? Encore une fois, châpeau bas! GREAT JOB!

    I'm wondering why would you use 5 2040 extrusions for the gantry instead of say one 20100 or even 2080 and two 2040. I might be wrong, but it seems to me that one wider extrusion would be stiffer than several narrower ones. And why did you choose to machine slots into extrusions instead of just buying extrusions with v-slot profiles? Is there some practical reason, other than arbitrary choice?
    Oh and thanks for sharing. Great vid 😉

    Beautiful machine but I'd be surprised if the electronics are up to the job. I've built 2 CNC's also, one small (prototype) and one large (production). I originally used GRBL platform too, but for serious use it's just too unreliable and those driver chips are also prone to failure. You do not want one of those X drives to fail 2 hours into a job!
    If you have to make the switch to a dedicated CNC board using e.g. Mach3, and matched drivers for the Nema 23's that should be in here, you're looking at the same as (or more than) the cost of the CNC machine itself.
    Would like to see the tests of how hard it can be driven on wood & would be impressed if it can cut aluminium to any acceptable degree 😉

    I honestly thought this was something you purchased as a kit, but when I read the comment, I was shocked that it is an actual home made CNC printer.
    I was like Whaaaat……LOL wow. humanity never ceases to amaze me with so many smart people in this world.
    this is just amazing how humanity is evolving like this. Anyways, ive been saving up to get a 3D printer on amazon,
    but dont know which one to get at a affordable price between $200 ~ $400 that can print very well. dont want to piss away money, if you know what I mean. 🙂
    How much did the entire project cost, if you dont mind me asking ?
    great video btw. 🙂 I subbed because of this video. 🙂

    Looks nice and robust. If love to see your review video of this build, not just the build itself.

    What was the size of your extrusions and cutting area?
    How much weight/pressure does it take to make it flex?
    Will you also be posting you bill of materials?

    I cant wait to make the cnc and improve it, looks nice and rigid. Can I ask some questions ?

    1 can you upload an English version.

    2 how did you cut v slot in your 2040 aluminum extrusion in the horizontal side.
