Re: New SO3 Table

Mine is one piece. There is no reason to make it two pieces. You just slide it in from the side.

Are the dimensional drawings on the wiki?
Thanks for sharing.

There are no drawings for it posted, I just need the time to get them on there. I will try and post the Auto Cad file for it.

Thanks,

Re: New SO3 Table

Cool, that looks really nice. :) How thick is the aluminium, what size are those T-slots, and how many hours do you reckon it's taken you so far? It looks a lot better than my work-in-progress aluminium plate bed. I'm going with M5 holes spaced 50mm apart instead of slots. (for the first one) Will ...

Re: New SO3 Table

I am very lucky to have a Mazak CNC Milling Center. So, the cost to make - 6061 Aluminum Plate $240.00 Machining $0.00, Blanchard Grinding $0.00 I would say the time it took me to make it, the Autocad, Programming the Mazak, Test run in wood and Aluminum run was about 6 hours all together. I also ha...

I have been doing test cuts on different thickness of materiel and have had no problem with stock up to 1 inch thick.

Re: Carbide Motion compatible post processor for V-Carve Pro

In Vcarve Pro use Grbl 0.8c(mm)*.gcode (and Zero your Z at the bottom of your stock) its the only way I could get it to work. It is the best that they have right now. Carbide 3D is working with them to create a Post Processor just for the Shapeoko 3. Like they have for every other CNC router out the...

Re: VCarve Pro 8 + SO3

I spoke with Apollo the other day and he was going to call Vcarve and see why they cant build a post processor just f...
