Nervous...

Okay, so I have the S3 together...and its been sitting for a few weeks. I ran the Shapeoko Carbide test job (with marker) the day I completed the build and it worked without issue. I want to actually cut something, but first need to figure out how I plan to fasten material to the base. I have been t...

Re: Cutting Size & Carbide Create

Okay, that makes sense. I hadn't had to enter 'stock' dimensions before and that threw me off. All of this is new so I am stumbling my way through :)

Appreciate the clarification.

Re: Cutting Size & Carbide Create

No, if you look at the image you can see I have the Shapeoko selected.

Re: Cutting Size & Carbide Create

Appreciate the input, but that is not the issue. I am simply attempting to set the cut area in Carbide and it tells me the 425mmx425mm.75 is too large. That is the size listed per the specs.

Fasten or attach

Okay, just finished putting together my S03 and all went very well. One motor lead was broken and was also missing to screws. Reached out to Edward and he immediately shipped out the relpacement parts. Was able to run the Shapeoko test job (with pen) this morning and turned out perfect. Next step, w...

Much easier...

Received my S3 today and started the build process. I am completely blown away at how much easier this is than the S1 Kit I ordered about 3 years ago. My S3 kit arrived with a smashed connector (on Y Axis motors) and short 2 bolts. I sent an email to sales explaining the issue and shortly thereafter...

Re: G10 Fiberglass or Carbon Fiber Sheets

I have never reviewed the process to make my own sheets. I wonder how complicated or easy it is?

G10 Fiberglass or Carbon Fiber Sheets

Anyone have a good source for G10 or Carbon Fiber sheets? Looking for .060" (1.5mm) and .125" (3mm).

Any insight appreciated.

Thanks

Re: IRC Channel

Hmm, I have a different take on IRC. I am actually actively involved in multiple IRC Channels, although I agree it depends on your availability to be near a computer. As for 'manned phones' so to speak, I don't think it needs to be anyone specific, but rather driven solely by the passion of those he...
