I have successfully cut the first 4 sheets for the CarBEN EV5 chassis -- only 89 to go!

WOO HOO!!!

I had to fix two problems: the voltage driving the Z and Y axes was too low, and the drive belt on the X axis stepper motor was loose. And I added back the two side roller rails so that they keep the sheet from shifting side to side. Each piece finished the cut *right* where it started; virtually perfectly...

Today was an amazing day! I've been working for over three years on this project and I finally have something *physical* to show for it! :-)

Video to come...
