Re: 300 watt DC ER11 spindle.

Hi everyone, Name's Joe. This will be my first post here and I'm excited to have a Shapeoko on the way. I've already begun to research spindles and have read through all of the posts on alternatives to the stock one that comes with the kit. I plan on cutting G10, acrylic, wood, and some plastics. I...

Does the forum site move slow for anybody else?

OK, quick question, I have 15MB/s download and upload yet the forum takes forever to load ALL THE TIME. Does this happen to anybody else? (and yes My computer is 100% virus free so I know it's not that)

Thanks
Brian

Can we please add a TB6560 Thread to the Need Help category?

Can we please add a TB6560 Driver board to the "Need Help?" Forum Category? I really want to use this board but I keep having to look in 1000 different places for help. Something that would centralize it would be great! Thanks! While you're at it, perhaps one for Smooth Stepper and the Mach3 Usb Mot...

Re: Just Enlarged my Shapeoko with some UpGrades

the current version of GRBL (0.8c) does have homing functions. If nothing else you can go ahead and install/use those limit switches with GRBL until you get around to setting up a Mach3 machine.
OOooo Thanks for the heads up. I'll look into it! :D

Thanks

Re: Just Enlarged my Shapeoko with some UpGrades

I am browsing through all the build files right now because I am going to completely reconfigure my machine and build an enclosure for it. I like a lot of the things that you have done here, and like you I am awaiting a more comprehensive GRBL based solution or I will be doing the same and switchin...

Re: Just Enlarged my Shapeoko with some UpGrades

Are you eventually going to enclose it with acrylic panels? My original plan was to make the enclosure sound proof. After a bit of research and a peek at my bank account I decided against that. The current issue with enclosing it is that the motor plates stick out on either side. But if I wanted to...

Re: Just Enlarged my Shapeoko with some UpGrades

I doesn't help that the part was printed in the wrong orientation. :( If that part had been printed the way that the broken bit is is oriented (not that part with the screw) it would have withstood much more force before breaking. Notice that is broke clean across a single layer. If it were printed...
