OpenBuilds Workbee 1050 (40" x 20") CNC
The Workbee (assembly required) is a super strong, accurate and easy to assemble CNC machine.
The Workbee design gains its strength by incorporating a combination of C-Beam Linear Rail with abundant use of the full size Xtreme Solid V wheels! The custom gantry plate design incorporates bolt patterns for use with either belt driven or lead screw driven set-ups on the X and/or Y axis which give you additional options if you decide to change the axis length in the future. It’s a great machine and we're sure you will love it!
The OpenBuilds WorkBee is based on the open source WorkBee CNC Machine design by Ryan Lock of UK-based Ooznest and has become a favorite on OpenBuilds with many different varieties and modifications shared.
