Re: New X-axis plates

:-) As soon as they're delivered, I'll have a post up (it's already saved as a draft!). Apparently the vendor had a laser issue and was down for a couple of days. I'm sure my tiny orders don't have priority once the machine was back up and running. -Edward Edward... Any news on these new motor moun...

Re: Dual Drive Setup (Dual Motor)

Hi everyone, Does anyone know where I can get the parts for the dual drive. i.e the pulley, the smooth idlers and the belt. I have looked on Instructables and they have 6 week lead time and the international postage is $40 for $15 worth of parts. I wish i had ordered them when I got my machine... h...

Re: Using ShapeOKO as a Pick & Place machine

Most 360 servos are actually continuous rotation, with no position feedback. PWM sets speed, not position. A winch servo is designed to do 3.5 rotations (3.5x360degs). http://www.servocity.com/html/hs-785hb_3_5_rotations.html http://www.servocity.com/html/s3802_arm_type_sail.html You could gear that...

Re: Another Belt Configuration

So I have been running a dual drive setup ....... I have had good luck with this setup but I found a lot of dust and chips getting into the belt grooves. Also, I lost about 35mm of working space because of the X axis plate was hitting the belts. So I did a bit of drilling and now have this setup:.....

Re: Test Cutting Materials

A foam like this

Is very cost effective per 8x8 area and should be very forgiving on bits, fid rates etc.

Re: Dual Drive Setup (Dual Motor)

Hmmm, I recall from the old forum that Edward wired his two motors in parallel. Each getting the same voltage, but half the current from his single driver. Is that the correct way to share a driver (if you are going to) or would it be preferable to wire them in series, where they get the same curren...
