Re: shapeoko made this 3d printer

My understanding was that most threaded rod is not perfectly straight so one end should be free to not induce any x wobble. Are you seeing any of that? The funny thing is you guys are looking for bigger printers while I have a fairly large one (Ultimax from Ultibots) and looking to build a smaller o...

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

I'm trying to set up an individual account and it requires a company name. Are people just using their full name, something different, or is there a different type of user account?

Seem to sold out everywhere. Where did you get them ?
I sent them an email a few weeks ago and they said they will not be selling it anymore. They said something about not selling well.

Re: I'm Having Trouble with GRBL and Windows

Almost all of the settings for mine were wrong. After one run nothing seemed to work including the $ command. I used XLoader with a few hex files from the grbl page with no luck. The I found a hex file somewhere in the ShapeOko wiki. After that I was able to use the calculator to get the correct val...

Re: Is this normal or am I tightening my v-wheels to much?

You either have them way too tight or I have mine way too loose. I adjusted mine based on a video or two I saw on the open rails sales site.

$100 3D Printer - Kickstarter

I was looking around on Kickstarter for some low cost 3D printers last night and came across this. I always hate it when I find out about a project on there and the early "get this completely assembled for $400 and everybody else will have to pay $1000 for a bag of parts" rewards are all taken. And ...
