Finally getting back to work on my homemade motorized linear slide mechanisms, after delays for parts and weather. I picked up working on the 3D foamcutter, got the X axis stepper driven, as well as the blade. The video is slow and borish, but shows what I have in mind and where I am going with it. I have to get a 5 axis controller wired, and get some? program to interface and run it. For now-no clue......But will get there....
 The thing is nice and rigid, and makes nice clean cuts. I want to be able to carve heads and other sculpture from Styrofoam blocks, and build a library of designs that can be made anytime I want one. This video is not too great, will make a better one once I get everything under control a bit more. The max block size right now is 3 X 4 inches, but will expand to 5 X 5 before its all over.
