    This is a novel approach to the whole diy cnc router.
    Keen to see how well it performs and the flexibility it has for different cut angles.

    Its an inverted stewart platform http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewart_platform.
    Just about every flight simulator uses them. Reckon you’d have all sorts of problems with resonance on the small scale.

    Depend on what you are machining? I can see possibilities for that.

    That is rather cool, makes more sense than just moving the local points, although surely in this situation there is a significant risk of the shafts colliding as it draws higher, that would be nasty for accuracy.

    Yeah I certainly wouldnt want to attempt aluminium. Would be fine for foams and soft woods though. Great for lost foam castings, you could probably produce the foam pieces quite quickly.
