Re: CNC Freakshow

Another one that's pretty cool to watch take shape is "Mecanizado de un torso". It's art (i.e.: a bit NSFW) so I won't post the video - search will quickly find it. People from the home 3D printing world might recognize it as the "pink panther woman" from thingiverse, though the video predates thing...

Re: Fusion 360 section

Fusion 360 is really growing on me. I haven't checked out the CAM stuff yet but I'm starting to like it just as a modeling system. They've got some really good videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/AutodeskFusion360/ and their "Fusion 360 Training" playlist in particular was a great set of intro vi...

Re: CNC Freakshow

Ha. I said it was a freakshow. Sorry. I was just in awe of the machine(machine lust n all that). I've have never seen a tool change like that. Heck I have have never seen a machine like that period. Yeah the video is pretty rough. I run across https://youtu.be/A_qHR_H_2cg every once-in-a-while and ...

Re: Shapeoko 3 in the wild

I think we should vote on if Improbable Construct should be here in the forums or be working on assembling #0003 and more posting pictures/videos.

Re: Where is your SO3?

Isn't this where people on the internet are supposed to shout "first!"?

Also, now that we've seen at least a box in the wild, do I now get to start asking about my batch-2 (or maybe batch-3) tracking number? (seriously, do we know how big a 'batch' is?)

Re: [SO3] What's the First First-Party Upgrade You Want

I had thought a "quiet" spindle would be great but people looked at me funny when I brought it up. I've had a couple kit 3D printers but this is my first CNC so there's some guesswork in what I'll need/want.. Limit switches would be great - anything that automates and/or removes steps from the workf...

It's just proof that it was delivered to the address.
Around here, they'll take a post-it on the door, if it nicely asks them to leave the package.. Print and sign, maybe include the tracking number.

Re: Where is your SO3?

Signature required — anyone have any experience changing location (say to work)? On the bright side, yesterday’s thunderstorm-related weather alert has cleared. http://www.fedex.com/us/customersupport/shipping/ says: If you are the shipper, you may contact FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.GoFedEx 1....

Re: Brass Clocks

He popped up in my G+ stream a few days ago and I immediately binge-watched all his videos.

Great stuff - I'll be very happy if I can get even close to the quality that he seems to consider normal.
