Kitchen Fronts, Door Carving and Bus Parts #64 - Novi Sad, Serbia

My name is Danilo Macanovic from Novi Sad, Serbia.

Last year I have built a small cnc (50x70cm) with linear bearings, ballscrews and learned a lot, made my own drivers for unipolar steppers (Mardus Kreutz) and they worked flawless (it helps to have an expert Mardus in the neighborhood) .

From start I wanted a bigger more massive machine but did not have the funds for it at the time. Now with help of some friends the build may be successful. I printed the plans and read most of the forum so I did my homework.
I decided for the Geckos this time because I really want to see them in action

I have available rack module 1 and pinion with 20 and 30 teeth. Steel for the frame is relatively cheap here so it wont be problem. Also there is a laser cutting service near me so that too wont be a big problem...

As everything looks in a month or two there will be one mechmate more from this part of Europe

p.s. I plan on using mechmate for cutting mdf boards and all sorts of other wood, forex, plexiglass etc.
And not to forget, I am basically an electronics engineer but in love with cnc machines.

I have tons of questions so be prepared

a little delay

MM has to wait a little becouse my colegues and me are building a bot for EUROBOT 2010 named Lily2, previous model Lily won in our national competion and made it till the quarter finals in Heilderberg Germany.
We made this one out of polypropilene and cut the parts on cnc.




Notice the beard! no time to shave when you start building a mechmate

Progress FINALLY!

After a very slow recovery here is the update!

I got my racks and 30 tooth pinions


Here are the laser cut and bent parts from my friend Milan!


I still have not cut the steel but had to paint it becouse of constant rain last 2 weeks.


I made a BOB with all the features I need for a MM, here is the PCB being made on my smaller cnc


and some foam letters for my friend which is helping me during the build

They are all like that I think. Some washers as spacers on both sides, then it fits perfectly.

Wired the spindle and prepared the spider wheels, they are bit larger and I made 20 of them on cnc lathe so used 6 instead of 4.

I assembled the belt reductions that I made earlyer and they worked out pretty nice!

Pump for my 2.2kW spindle is Atman 105, its a bit larger than Milan's Atman 104 which is working fine for him but I got this one at a good price so went with larger.

Well I am near the finish line.

Mounted control buttons, and did some 3D tests. Other 2 pictures are from making of my own drivers Mardus-Kreutz unipolar. They work well but will be changed sometime in the future if i have to.
