Re: Don't laugh! I'm serious. I'm seeking a donation unit

Will,

I think that would be a great idea. It won't help C3D sell machines but they probably would not get a sale to these people anyway. It would get more parties started and that might mean more sales of accessories thru the shop and maybe more projects for us to follow.

How do you organise your project files

I wasn't sure whether to post this under software or here so mods feel free to move it if necessary This might become more obvious to me once I actually start cutting some projects but I am currently in the process of assembling my Shapeoko3. I am also trying to learn Vcarve using the free trial. Wh...

Re: New Enclosure

That looks great...something I guess I'll have to make at some stage.

Well done

Re: Where to find information--Beginning SO3 User

Thanks for those links Will. I have printed out a couple of the pdfs Last night I assembled the waste-board and end-plates plus the xz assembly. Spent ages try to align the (misaligned)outside holes in my wasteboard - that I drilled myself I hasten to add, only to eventually discovered it was not an...

Re: Where to find information--Beginning SO3 User

Many thanks for your work. As a real noob about to assemble my SO3 this is going to be used a heap. Sometimes its hard ducking back and forth finding all the bits I need to know. One other thing that would be a big help, and I might try it later as my contribution if nobody else does it, would be to...

Re: And so the spend commences

@WillAdams Finally tracked how I managed to get two different copies of the drawings for the wasteboard. If you go to the SO3 Wiki under Drawings: Wasteboard: http://carbide3d.com/files/S3_Wasteboard.pdf S3099[121][122] Unofficial_S3099_xl.svg And click on the pdf you get the latest(??) drawing (S3S...

Re: And so the spend commences

@ willadams. The incorrect(???) Drawing is dated 23/4/2015 (ref S3099)and I think I may have picked it up from a post on this site but I have no idea where. I do know it appears to be referenced in an earlier post re wasteboard dimensions by RawIndesign where the dimensions were "changed" by 1.73mm ...

Re: And so the spend commences

My problem is that I have 2 plans with measurements for the wasteboard - both drawn by Edward. One is solely in mm and the other in mm/imperial. The metric measurements are different on each one! Not by much but when I have to put a bolt into a threaded hole "not much" is too much. :o I thought of u...

Re: And so the spend commences

Thanks Will, It's the same with wood turning lathes..the cost is in the tools as much as the lathes. I wondered about using router cutters especially as I have several I use with my big Hitachi and Triton routers. That chart is also useful. At the moment I am struggling with marking up the hole cent...
