The X-Carve is an inexpensive tabletop CNC carver intended for enthusiast and light duty work. It's working area is 3.2 feet x 3.2 feet x 2.75". The X-Carve has its quirks, but i've had good luck running 3 dimensional G-Code exported from Fusion 360 on it. Like The Beast, this machine is intended to be a 2.5D carver, but with a few advantages. This is my personal machine, so I can freely make modifications to it, and the X-Carve is open source, so all the files and drawings for it are available on Inventables GrabCAD page.
For the first stage of the Modifications to this machine, I'm going to add more z-clearance between the bottom of the X-Carve's gantry and its spoil board.
The easiest way to do this, is to replace the four corner brackets at that connect the Makerslide rails to the spoilboard's frame with taller one. I downloaded the drawings for the original brackets from GrabCAD, and added three inches to their height in Fusion 360. The new brackets were cut out of 1/4 inch thick aluminum plate on The Beast. If you'd like to create your own extra tall brackets, you can download the DXF files for them HERE
