Re: Tips for enclosures to house electronics?

So, I have had this little project bookmarked for when I have some free time (or more realistically when it reaches the top of the priority list of things to do), but in the build is a steel enclosure made by IAASR that actually seemed reasonably priced compared to some of the enclosures I've seen....

Re: Tips for enclosures to house electronics?

I've been looking for a long time for a large enough box. If you want such a thing you are going to have to pay a bunch of money for an electrical enclosure. If you find something usable let us know! I am ok paying money for a quicker solution. I will let you know if I find something. I probably wi...

Re: Tips for enclosures to house electronics?

Thanks Will for pointing me into the right direction. Lots of interesting designs. I think they all have similar elements in common. Looks like I may need to come up with my own design as well.. I was hoping for something off the shelf that is common/semi professional and then just modify it by dril...

Tips for enclosures to house electronics?

I have Shapeoko 2 with a TinyG, Speed Controller and two power supplies for spindle and board. Any tips for project boxes? I am just started researching enclosures so I can safely put everything neatly away. It would be great to have some connectors to make it easily disassembled or less points of f...

Re: Homing via Chilipeppr and Tinyg?

Last question. Can someone explain how the homing sequence works. Is homing set in the part's g-code? or is this run before I start a job? I am not 100% familiar with the process just yet.

Re: Homing via Chilipeppr and Tinyg?

Update! I ended up getting them to work. The wiring was fine (maybe not for noise but I'll deal with that soon) The command was the issue and I changed both y and x to be homing only. The Home button and $homx $homy do not work for me for some reason in Chilipepr. I ended up reading the troubleshoot...

Homing via Chilipeppr and Tinyg?

I wired up my limit switches for x min and y min but when I click home it doesn't do anything. It does however behave correctly if I just jog in either x min or y min direction and hold down the switch. Is there a way to just home x and y? My config has XSN and YSN set to 3. What am I missing here? ...

Re: Need Help with Mechanical Limit Switch Wiring for homing

So any ground is fine for the braided wire? Just for more info I do not have the wire yet It was just a random google image to confirm type of wire I should get. The switch I have actually reads NO, NC and Com. Disregard other markings I mentioned. It is a simple black switch with no LED or board at...

Re: Need Help with Mechanical Limit Switch Wiring for homing

Thanks, I did read through the Github but if I am not mistaken the line "To connect a switch to an input pin simply wire the switch across the ground and the input." is the only reference to wiring. I just wanted to clarify a bit more. Just to clarify cmcgrath5035 I am using a simple mechanical swit...
