Wiki pages now updated to reflect ShapeOko 2

Post by WillAdams » Tue Mar 18, 2014 3:55 pm

There's a B.O.M. which we can expand upon w/ new options as they become available:

http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/BOM

(this was made up out of the list on the old Purchasing page)

Purchasing was (conceptually) split into two pages:

http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Vendors --- list of Vendors
http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Parts --- this is the old Parts page up-dated

The original pages (and their edit history) were archived at:

http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Parts_(SO1)
http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Purchasing_(SO1)

Still a few little details to nail down:

- need images (Edward is looking into making arrangements)
- need CAD links for the balance of the parts

and I'd appreciate it if someone could review the NEMA 23 columns...

Thanks for the BOM, using it to double check my own list of parts I ordered.

The NEMA 23 columns look OK based on what I have learned so far, but what do I know.

I did see that the GT2 belt length is listed as 5 feet. There was conflicting information on this blog post when i was ordering my belting. It stated 5 feet in the NEMA 17 section but 6 feet in the NEMA 23 upgrade section. Then in the Q&A section on the actual product page, an answer was given as "full kits include 6 feet of belting, but if you’re careful you should be fine with 5 feet". Based on that information and the chance I might mess up something, I went with 6 feet.

Thanks. Fixed.

I got 5 ft. w/ my kit, and it left me feeling a bit constrained at each end and falling a bit short all around --- I'm glad that they've decided on 6ft.

Now if we could just get the belt anchor clips to be slim like Catalin's nifty metal ones: http://store.amberspyglass.co.uk/buckle ... -pair.html we'd all be set.

I have been thinking that some sort of eye bolt would be a nice touch and may have to integrate Catalin's system into it.
