Re: will1384's Shapeoko 2

I was under the impression that the limit switches on the Arduino Uno were wired the same was as the C10 breakout board, with the C10 breakout board all I had to do was ground the pin for limit switches, and there is an image in the Wiki that seems to shows just that: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/in...

Re: will1384's Shapeoko 2

I used Microsoft paint to make the wiring diagrams, I wanted a reference to help check my work, and it will help later if I make modifications. Wow. You really should look at using a vector drawing program instead --- you can still export a pixel map if you need, but the modifications are much easi...

Re: will1384's Shapeoko 2

This is a really impressive set-up! A lot of time went into making that table, and the electronics are very neat. I like it very much. Thanks I thought about buying a table but the cost was to high, so I made a table from scrap angle iron and wood left over from building a small workshop for my dad...

Re: will1384's Shapeoko 2

Part (2) The Control Box. I had a lot of old metal boxes from junk electronic equipment I disassemble so I reused one of them for the enclosure. I used: (4) 4 Contacts, 4 Pins, Aviation Plugs, size M16 --- for the Stepper Motor plugs (1) 4 Contacts, 4 Pins, Aviation Plug, size M12 --- for the Limit...

Re: will1384's Shapeoko 2

Part (1) The table. I have a small 14x20 workshop, its mostly used for welding and metalworking, and it's where I store metal hardware, power tools and such, I also had my DIY CNC router in there, I had to do a lot of cleaning and rearranging to find a spot for a 60x60 inch CNC table to fit. I look...

will1384's Shapeoko 2

I have been planing to get, and ordering parts for the Shapeoko 2, since November of last year, I ordered the mechanical kit because I already had stuff left over from a small DIY CNC router. I plan on upgrading the Shapeoko 2 to 60x60 inches / 1524x1524 millimeters, I planed on doubling all the rai...

Re: Caleb's Shapeoko 2 #3164

i'm discovering that! Ever since i hit submit on that post... although I'm guessing I will need to solder onto the grblShield somewhere to get access to those Arduino pins? I plan on using a screw shield, I found one that fits between the grblShield and arduino uno. Here is the link to the one I ha...

Re: Working on a custom Shapeoko 2

Here you can see I widened the sub gantry assembly to accommodate 2 makerslides and one 40x20mm extrusion that will be sandwiched in the middle to serve as reinforcement. Could you tell me what spacers and bolts you used, I am going to build a 60x60 inch Shapeoko 2 and I am trying to roundup all th...

Re: Planning to get a Shapeoko 2, and have some questions

MakerSlide 1800mm ------ around 1524mm / 60inches (003x)------2m of GT2 belt Shouldn't that be 1.5M x2 == 3M? The person I ordered the GT2 belt had it in 2 meter sections and gave me two GT2 timing pulleys free for each order, and it was cheap, I figured I could use the belt on other projects later...
