Those steppers should be just fine as I believe that's what are used on repraps, granted those machines are much lighter, thus easier to move the mass. Just as a side note, I wouldn't cut anything with the extended z axis due to the longer moment arm that is created and when coupled with a spindle a...
Yes, it is possible to turn the ShapeOko into a 3D printer with the correct electronics and an extruder mounted in place of a spindle. Yes, the ShapeOko should move fast enough depending on your stepper motors and electronics. The sparkfun stepper motors that are suggested on the wiki should be plen...

Here is the link, it should work. http://www.david-laserscanner.com/?section=Downloads It's the one at the top version 220.127.116.1108 Hope this helps
The best wire gauges for power are 20 ga or 18 ga. Anything larger than this (16 ga or smaller number - the numbers get smaller as the current handling capacity gets larger, until you start using 0 and 00 and 000) is also OK, but the larger gauges get hard to connect to the terminals as the wire si...

Hi, I'm looking for a program or some way to cut these shapes out on the ShapeOko from the attached picture. I can generate these shapes and save them either as pdf or eps file types. My problem is then taking either of these file types to generate gcode with them if that makes sense.

I also vote no, I don't know the history of this item, but it seems like a rip off of the buildlog.net one.
I know the wiki page says: "The size of the power supply should be at least 4.2A at 24V. A larger supply (for example, a 4.5A) will work fine. The size is based on the requirements of the stepper motors you choose." I'm interested in two things. First, what is the mathematical formula for figuring o...
