X and Y axes are assembled with 20mm supported chrome plated rails (SBR20).
Supported rails ensures rigidity and smooth milling operations even on the hardest aluminum alloys.
We chose 1.90Nm (269.0oz.in) high quality Nema 23 stepper motors with 200 steps per revolution for Yoda v2.0.
These motors, combined with the Tr10x2 leadscrews and the anti-backlash Acetal nuts, are capable to provide the required torque in order to mill wood, plastics and non ferous metals such as aluminum with a resolution of 0.01mm (0.0003").
We chose the 800Watts Kress Milling Motor to be the Yoda's spindle.
The Kress spindle comes ready with a factory test certificate of runout which guarantees the runout to be <0.15mm.
Yoda comes with an Arduino UNO and a GRBL Shield with DRV8825 Stepper Drivers as a controller.
The main reasons we chose Arduino UNO and the GRBL firmware are their ease of use, stellar performance and of course cost effectiveness.
You can control your Yoda CNC Router using the SourceRabbit GCode Sender.
SourceRabbit GCode Sender is open source and free and you can download it here.
Yoda v2.0 ships with a license for the latest ESTLCam software.
ESTLCam is a complete CAM(Computer-Aided Manufacturing) software solution for 3 Axis CNC production machining.
Forget about reading manuals and spending hours to fit every cable and screw.
Just screw on the 3 pieces, plug into the power line, connect the USB port and you could be carving your first designs minutes after you receive your Yoda v2.0.
