In volume 1 we build the frame and carriages. Volume 1 is the foundation to the CNC Construction Set.
Included with volume 1 is a detailed "Bill of Materials", with product links to the components needed for the frame construction.
Volume 1 is currently 112 Pages.

What is covered in Volume 1
The items shown in red are what I refer to as adapter plates. They serve the purpose of forming the base for the various carriages and mounts. The design of the CNC Construction Set was done in such a way that these plates can be made from a multitude of materials. PVC, MDF, Corian, or Aluminum. You can even start with one and migrate to the more expensive ones (Corian, Aluminum) later.
Chapter 1 is an introduction to the build. It covers the various plate materials as well as the stand.
Chapter 2 covers basic frame constuction.
Chapter 3 covers the Y axis linear rails.
Chapter 4 covers the Y carriages.
Chapter 6 covers the gantry.
Chapter 9 covers the Z Rails.
Chapter 10 covers the basic Z carriage.
Here I cover the linear drive components using 5-start ACME drives screws and nuts.
