There are basically two types of CNC machines, those with a mobile bed and those with a mobile gantry. Most machines look like a table with a cutting tool suspended above the latter.
The base and supervision of your router are essentially the "structural bones" of the machine. The base of the machine is also known as the frame of the X axis. Whether you have a mobile bed or a mobile gantry, the machine will move in line with X-, Y- and Z. The X axis gives At the machine its stability, while supporting a linear cutting movement along the X axis, or simpler, left and right. The Y axis can be fully supported by the frame to give greater stability in advance and upside down.
