Re: Shapeoko 3 - 4' x 4' - Prototype #1

Awesome, thanks for the updates! 8-)

So based on your table dimensions, is the overall footprint a bit more than 5'x5' then?

Re: V Rail covers and brushes - ShapeOKO

Agreed, this looks fantastic. 8-) I wonder if a two-stage sweep might also be effective? A small bristle brush as a "pre-sweep" before the felt might be able to flick/sweep/shed debris without inadvertently capturing it and turning into an abrasive scrubber like felt does. You would use the two toge...

Re: Anyone using a 3D mouse?

I did some software development around a SpaceNavigator a few years ago. Loved the hardware, and loved what you could do with it from the software/product side. 8-) No idea how well it plays with the software you are using, but overall they're really neat input devices that are fantastic at what the...

Re: Shapeoko 3 - Expansion Packs

The expansion packs are important to us too. We've been working hard on fulfilling the backorder, and getting the supply chain stuff in line so we can get in stock and stay there. Once that happens, everything gets a little easier here. ... Stick with us, we're not going to let this go to the back ...

Re: SO3 - Debris in the Z-Axis?

Has anyone taken any measures to keep the Z-Axis clear of debris? I realize a dust shoe would do wonders, but since I'm cutting material that's 2" thick, a dust shoe is quite challenging to implement. I'd rather run it without a shoe and vacuum up after the job. How about using the vacuum to collec...

Re: Interesting technique for making drawers

You could do this without a tool change if you used a 90-degree V-Bit and a different cut profile. I drew up some examples... the first option (green) is obvious, but wouldn't be as strong and doesn't have the self-aligning easy-assembly benefits. The orange and blue examples are essentially the sam...

Re: Computer Section

Okay, should be populated w/ the recent relevant topics --- just bump anything which you feel should be moved and we'll see what happens. Thanks! Here's a few more. There's a lot of hardware/software overlap in the forums, so some of these could go either way. ;) http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewt...

Re: Raspberry Pi to run the Shapeoko?

Basically, what I'd like to do would be to: - pop a MicroSD out of the Raspberry Pi, load it into a Windows tablet, copy over a file for milling, return MicroSD to rPi and boot it up - control the Raspberry Pi using the Windows tablet to select the file for milling, home / jog the machine, select a...
