The CAD planning took about 30 hours. So far I have used 2 days building and got the main table torsion box and base structure finished.-

I was able to finish the torsion box in a day, took about 10 hours total. There are 108 (hand drilled) holes with T-nuts for workpiece fastening.

Second day I had lots of other stuff to do besides this,- but managed to build the base structure. I can only hope those wheels can take the weight of the finished machine which will be about 165kg.

Some of the plans I made with solidworks, they will be available for free later on.

This is the current situation, it was quite hard to maneuver these big objects in such a cramped space.

The project will move much slower from now on as I can only work on it at weekends. The next step will be making the table legs and then I can move on to building the gantry pieces. I can probably finish one component / weekend so it can take up to two months or so to finish the build.
