Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Well, still waiting for the Misumi extrusion to arrive. Received all the parts from Inventables and Bolt Depot. Right now I have a 1000mm x 1000mm X and Y axis platform. Unfortunately until the extrusion arrives I am dead in the water. For my end plates I am going to use the stock end plates and cut...

What issues does this causes?

I guess I am asking if I use non-shielded, what is the impact? Just trying to understand all of this.

Thanks,

Re: PC Fan??

I went ahead and plugged the wires directly into the same +/- pots on the board. I figure I want to run a fan at each end of the enclosure. So, the next question, should I wires these fans in parallel or series?

Really need to figure out something for wire management too.

PC Fan??

I have recently completed the Dual Motor upgrade. I have read (and noticed) that these little board produce a fair amount of heat.

I have several old PC fans and was wondering how others are getting power to the fans?

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Okay, completed the order tonight for the extended (dual) X Makerslide, hardware, and extrusion (misumi). Unlikely I'll get to do anything with this until next weekend as the wife and I are heading to Sturgis, SD (Bike Rally) Wednesday afternoon - think we're heading home Friday morning; quick trip....

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Actually, revised the design of the bracket to reflect the current End Plates; added slots on top versus holes. This would be cut from 5mm Aluminum stock. Also, extended length from 110mm to 140mm. http://i1327.photobucket.com/albums/u674/kerryfitzgeraldcorcoran/ShapeOko/shapeoko-bracket_02_zps8ce30...

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Thoughts?

Basically hoping others who have already went down this route can shed some light on "Best Practices"

Thanks,
