DynaCNC 4'x8' router table to Acorn

Post by cnc_jim »

I have to say a big THANK YOU to Centroid for providing the best value in DIY CNC on the market today. I just completed the upgrade of my CNC router table to Acorn and couldn't be happier! Followed the schematics for the GeckoDrive 203V (only thing I kept from my old controller) and everything just worked without any issues. Watched a lot of video's that provided almost everything I needed to get my machine working. I saved so much money over upgrading to Mach4, Smooth Stepper and PMDX boards that I had planned for my initial upgrade that I bought a touch screen monitor, wireless pendant and upgraded to Mill Pro. The pendant is just amazing to use. I feel like I have a professions system now! Not sure how you can sell the entire acorn kit for the price you do, but thank you for providing this to the DIY community.

right on! thanks for the kind words, nice to hear the appreciation you have for all of everyone's hard work (all the good folks at Centroid and the Centroid CNC community power users (such as Marty and Gary) to bring the Acorn cnc controller to the DIY market. Please post some photos we'd all like to see your machine!

Pictures attached. Cutting out a new table top with the machine this weekend. Also, the Husky rolling tool cabinet was a real bargain at $69 from my local Home Depot store. Computer is in the cabinet, has built in power strip and grommet hole for wires to pass in and out. Convenient drawer to put all my CNC related tools in and the touch screen I bought mounted right to the steel peg board! The pendant is magnetic so I can stick it right to the metal peg board also. :D

Just an update. 4 years later and couldn't be happier! Upgraded my Z axis to an AVID Z axis for more rigidity this spring. Software is still working flawlessly!
