I just purchased a Shapeoko XXL I’m super excited! I’m new to CNC and wood working honestly. I’ve done little projects and things, but i’m wanting to build a table for it before it arrives. What are the final build dimensions of the Shapeoko XXL?
We have a note on the this at: http://carbide3d.com/shapeoko/ — for the XXL:
Footprint: 45”W x 40-1/2”L x 16”H
The community has some further notes at: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Shapeoko_3#Overview
note that the electronics enclosure projects from the left extrusion, overhanging these dimensions to the left slightly (~2 5/8″) — one should also add room for wiring and cables
Exact measurements for an enclosure would be 47.375″ wide and 45.5″ deep.
and we have a note on the spacing of the feet at: Adjustable feet spacing on S03 XXl
I hope this helps! Please let us know if there’s anything else which we can do for you!
So do you think a 50"x48" table top would be sufficient, i plan on building a place for a PC under it and putting a monitor stand off the side?
That should work, but in addition to the machine and computer one wants to arrange / account for:
- dust collection
- space to lay out stock and prep it for cutting
- a separate space for cut pieces
- any tools needed for post-processing the pieces such as a deburring tool
- easily accessible storage for collets and endmills and the associate wrenches and so forth
- measurement tools
- a (wireless) numeric keypad is a great way to jog the machine
Some great ideas, i’ll probably need to make it a bit larger then. I plan on building some sort of shop vac boot. And probably an enclosure around it(eventually) to cut down noise.
I purchased the dewalt router with it. I also work for a company that owns hardware stores and can get router bits near cost. What are some college and endmills I should pick up to get started with. I plan on only cutting wood at the moment.
