As can be seen by the image above, the router is installed in my Dads garage and we’ve carried out a couple of test runs. All in all we are very happy with how it has turned out. I’ve got a few more parts to print to put the duet wifi in and tidy up the cabling. I also need to print a dust shoe to attach the vacuum to.

To generate the CNC gcode, we are using fusion 360. As I mentioned, we are using a duet wifi as the main controller and luckily for us, thats also the the controller used by Ooznest. They have very kindly provided us with a post processor for fusion 360 to allow the CNC gcode to be output fully formatted for the duet.

A copy of the config we are using for the duet can be found here.

I think I’m going to end up building a larger CNC router for myself as my next project once the CoreXY is out of the way.

I’ve now built a Root CNC 3 Lite for my Dad. The actual build has been completed, all that remains now is to complete the wiring of the board (we’re using a duet 2 wifi) and setting up of the config.

At some point, I intend to visit a couple of the parts and maybe even look at producing a better 3D model of it. A word of warning, the fasteners list is not correct so don’t follow it too closely.

I will post some videos once its up and running. For now, you just get a picture.
