Re: Hello World!

Very, very sharp looking ``Hello world!'' Congratulations! (looking forward to seeing it on the gallery on the wiki). Yes, the dial indicator is a huge help in achieving precision --- fascinating to read about how that was initially achieved in books such as _Foundations of Mechanical Accuracy_. Th...

Re: Hello World!

Finally a success. Thanks everyone for the input. I've squared the machine from bottom up :-). Started from the waste board, installed Y axis, then placed Z assembly. Removed bottom wheels to do that. I had to use Aluminum foil shim to make X axis parallel to the front extrusion. I'm hoping to submi...

Re: 3d vs 2.5d, is it well defined?

I am not sure that I understand the difference between 2.5D milling and and 3D. Is there a clear difference, or is the difference as fuzzy as my understanding? In general 2.5D is a sub domain of 3D. Roughly, 2.5D we have the complete control over X, Y and but half control over Z axis. In milling it...

Re: Hello World!

Seems you are almost correct Will. I found two boards are little bit warped so that center line (where two boards meet) slightly lower. :-(. I can assure you I've tightened all the screws well.

Re: $150 off Misumi Promotion

Today I've noticed they provide a rough estimator of shipping. We need to know the weight of our items we order, and they provide a table of price vs weight :-). So it is better than earlier.
