1200mm x 1200mm Shapeoko build

The build is finally making some progress! We added some 1400mm misumi rail and four 1200mm pieces of Makerslide to create this large format cnc machine. It’s based on Makerail/Shapeoko designs with a few modifications for improved stiffness. Sharp eyes will notice the doubled X rails that the tool mount rides along.

To run dual belt drive on the Y axis, we’re adding a shaft drive that runs the full width of the machine. The precision ground shaft was too tight of a fit for the new pulleys we purchased, so we tossed the ones that came with the Shapeoko kit into the lathe and drilled them out.

  2. This is a great project. I think my last comment got garbled up somewhere. I just started looking into the shapeoko for at home prototyping and my exact thoughts were I wish it was a bit bigger. Then you bring it up to 1.2m square. Awesome. I’ll be sure to read through the rest of your blog before I decide if I want to tackle a project like this. Thanks for blogging it!
