This is the C-beam Sphinx a strong desktop cnc router that will enable you to cut aluminum plates among other things without taking up to much room. Simple, strong and opensource!
Get yourself a custom set of plates to build your very own Sphinx cnc router.
As always I am providing all the cad and design files free of charge:
If you find them useful in your build or design and want to give back to all the time, effort and materials I put into the design. Feel free to Hit that Tip Icon <-- over on the side. A simple coffee keeps me designing :)

C-beam Sphinx? The bulk of this machine and every axis is built upon the strong openbuilds C-beam linear rail and much as the Sphinx of myth inherits attributes from many to create one. So do I build from ideas shared with the community.
From Mark Carew with his Ox and Plate Maker, Robert Hummel and his Stinger-V to sm3d and their R7. Each has inspired me to design build and explore this world of cnc that has lead to the design you are now reviewing.
Goals with this build:
Many openbuilds parts
Ease of construction
I would like to think I have reached those goals!
The C-beam Sphinx was designed in Sketchup and you will find a full cad model in the attached zip for this build. Along with Sketchup, I have used Fusion 360 to design the new plates of course the .f3d files are also included.
I encourage you to build modify and share your C-beam Sphinx build. Everything you need to get started is within the included zip files.
Along with all cad files you will also find a Cut List , B.O.M , Build Photos and a detailed Build Manual ! While I am no film student I did record and edit a complete Assembly Video to help you along with your own build.
HERE IS THE ASSEMBLY VIDEO
Thank you for reading I look forward to any and all feedback and to following any builds you may take up from my design!
