Re: shapeoko made this 3d printer

kbot3d, I think I've probably already made my mind to go to a bigger build volume and faster printing. Those are probably the reasons that I'm having trouble getting around to finishing the MendelMax. Plus, of course, I having a lot of fun building the much bigger ShapeOko but that's getting close t...

Re: shapeoko made this 3d printer

I'm most of the way done building a MendelMax and am already convinced that the build area will be too small, so I'm not really looking for a starter printer. I really like the way the Shapeoko goes together and can be upgraded. Consequently, I'd be interested in the pieces that I don't already have...

Needless to say the bigger one I'm building will use a Dewalt 660 but I am certainly all ears about alternatives. So, I'm very inter...

Re: Dremel dust collection using threaded part

Well, it might not be easy, but with the right bit you could actually cut an inside thread in plastic with your shapeoko.

I think I may have seen CAD wizards for thread cutting somewhere.

Re: Backlit cedar box, LED help please.

Edward, you are jumping around a little, so it is not clear what you want to do. In one spot you are looking at monochrome LEDs and in another, RGB. To do effective back lighting, in my designs, I prefer to use a large number of LEDs close together to give more even illumination although it is possi...
