Wright cnc 5 x 10

Postby Rtodahl01 » Sat Nov 18, 2017 11:39 pm

Well, I bought a wright cnc 5 x 10 table.
I haven't seen much written on them.
I have seen some less than favorable comments on the web after I bought it.
I got it two weeks after having a total knee replacement
So it is slow going on the assembly.
Strictly me though because it is pretty easy to put together.
I use turbo cad for drawing. Then to sheetcam for g code and setup tommorrow I will replace my filter system on my air compressor and give it a go.
I have done a couple test runs without the torch running.
Glad I did.
Easy to miss inputting correct information.
Again, me learning the software.
Being one of the least expensive machines I anticipated needing to work out bugs.
So far it has been learning the software.
After I make some cuts I will post more.

I'm interested in your progress on the table. Please keep the updates coming. Good luck with the knee.

I also have an inexpensive table. The programming was the hardest part for me until I joined Plasmaspider.
The help that the members give is what turned the lights on for me.
Learn to read what the Sheetcam results are showing you and your life will be greatly reduced of stress.

so today I put new filters in my air supply just to start fresh.
drew up a simple base plate and ran it
To my amazement it worked!
will hook up my THC tomorrow.
I like to do one thing at a time then I have less to troubleshoot if things don't work.
First cut was pretty clean.
Had some movement but I think it could be from torch height may be a bit high and the material was pretty small and moved from the airflow.

Ok, so far I am having good performance using drawings I make on Turbo Cad.
Love drawing up a part and seeing the machine cut it out.
Need to learn how to take an image from the net and make a DXF file.
I keep getting errors. And strange cut paths

Down load some dxf files that are "Known good" from plasma spider then try and see how they work. This way you will eliminate that part of potential user error. I am looking at one of these machines myself since my 4x4 plasmacam is to small for some of what I want to make.

I convert a lot of web images using Bobart. I put points all around the edges of the image I want, then connect them with either lines if they are straight, or arcs if they are curves. Once done I save what I drew as a dxf and just use that clean dxf for my path.

I will try this.
Spending way to much time cleaning up expiramental images.
As far as the table goes it is working well

i ordered a 4x4 a few weeks ago, i was in the same boat and did a ton of research, ldr was in my backyard and a few guys in my area have them. i came across a wright cnc table and it look decent. i reached out to them any they quickly responded. over the past few week i had no problem getting my questions answered from them even tho i didnt purchase anything from them yet.. thats great customer service! i like to give the small guy some business as well. i receive mine monday, i will also give some feedback

Awesome, Mine was about three weeks late.
So far been working well.
Issues today are that I have been playing around the settings and need to figure how to get back to default settings.
The picture above is a security box for rotating Christmas lights.
Loved drawing it up then cutting it out and everything fit perfect.
