    That is a pretty robust motor but I guess it needs to be to get any speed of manufacture.

    Milling has always seemed complicated to me. I'm sure there is a steep learning curve.

      Yes, there is a steep learning curve and it is way too easy. Its different from 3d printing but is easy to understand it.
      First configuration was successful. I had to configure the spindle inverter 2,2kw.
      See photo of every electronic running.
      Second foto is the spindle motor.

        Almost complete! Needs to setup the controller software and get it running.

                Vassili Finellis, just FYI, "qork" is archaic Klingon for "work"

                    I can hardly read this tiny screen. I have to get my DMI connection fixed so I'm back to my big screen. Very hard to get someone to change the the connection these days.

                        It's a 15" touchscreen from ELO. Is the most suitable screen for a CNC unit.

                          Vassili Finellis, I think roon4660 is referring to the screen on his own Mac computer.

                            Thank you Ender5R. I'm nearly done printing my monster and the prints are coming out very nicely. I have nearly 30 pieces to put together. I think it is supposed to end up 14 cm tall.

                              I look forward to seeing it done.
