Re: Baz's 2x4Oko!

I am currently at a bit of a stall in the build. :? Looking at things, once I mount a 20mm MDF spoil board on top of the extrusion framework, then have my work pieces (eg. 10mm ply) and also have my end mill protruding from the end of the z axis I will have barely any z travel at all. In that case I...

Baz's 2x4Oko!

ShapeOko to eShapeOko to 2x4Oko, Evolution at its best! My current machine was looking smaller and smaller every time I used it :( , it really was time for an upgrade. (I was also super jealous of IC's brilliant machine! ) Over the past months I had gathered just about all the parts I would need fo...

Re: ShapeOko to eShapeOko

I see what you mean, but its really not that bad. The great advantage of those plates is the wider separation of the z axis wheels that give greater sturdiness. They are also stainless steel and as solid as a rock, 10 times better than standard carriage plates. This machine is no more anyway! there ...

Re: Kress 1050

I am just about to mount my Kress 800 (From Sorotec, brilliant supplier. Best bit is eating the sweets that come in the parcel! (It’s a funny tradition/thing that Germans do, every time I receive something form a German supplier (usually CNC/industrial stuff) there is a little bag of Haribo.) My mac...

Re: Is this thing even a Shapeoko anymore?

Impressive build IC. My machine (almost complete, pictures to come soon!) is very similar to yours, 800 x 1200 with steel wheels and black hardened MakerSlide (being part of MakerSlide Europe has its perks :D ), sans the carbon fibre and tall x axis. I have opted for nema 17's all-round except the x...

Re: ShapeOko to eShapeOko

I got them on the cheap at a random store, but if you search 'cable braid' on eBay there are plenty.
However, if I was to build my machine again I would have definitely chosen to use plastic cable chain.

ShapeOko to eShapeOko

(Edit; Sorry for the huge pictures. I didn't know how big they where untill i had placed them all and it would take ages to change them!) As some of you may know, Catalin has developed a modified variant of the ShapeOko, the eShapeOko. It is targeted at the European market as it has become increasin...
