Assembly instructions for the CNC frameLink

We chose the X-Carve 1000 mm as basis for the CNC gantry, feel free to choose another one but beware to check the aluminium frame still fit!

X-Carve 1000mm.


To build the CNC you will need:

  • X-Carve 1000mmm (US buy here; EU buy here)


We chose the X-Carve because initially you could customize your order and for example not order the work area (wood plate). Apparently it is not possible anymore!


Follow the official build instructions for the X-Carve here.

You should follow these steps:

  • Gantry - Side Plates
  • Gantry - X-Carriage
  • Gantry - Z-Axis
  • Assemble Gantry
  • Rails
  • Belting


Do NOT follow the steps indicating how to:

  • build the work area
  • fix the spindle
  • fix the gantry and rails over the work area (wood plate)

Once you followed the official instructions, attach the CNC to the aluminium frame before continuing with the next section: wiring the CNC electronics!
