Thoughts on re-working things?

Once we have more, the Shapeko 3 link will become an expanding section --- are there any nifty tricks for mediawiki sidebars which we're missing?

One change which I believe that we should make is to move Spindle Options and Mounts up to the Parts section

This seems suitable since the SO3 doesn't include a spindle.

Another change to make:

Move Endmills up to Parts as well (currently it's under ``Using your machine'')

Any commentary or objections to either of these changes?

that sounds like good idea. i havent needed to look for that page yet but it would have took me a min to find in using a machine

Thanks. Done and done.

I’ll probably alpha sort the Upgrades section tomorrow at work (easier when I can use Services to do that) and review the ordering of each sub-section.

Put any other ideas here.

One further thought would be to update / edit the main page to:

- move the history stuff to the About page
- add an overview of the various sub pages (w/ links)
- update for the SO3

Okay, I did as much on / of that as I could. Also went back to our original tradition of using an exploded view as the main image --- hoping to fiddle w/ the SVG a bit more, but managed to get something reasonably decent (really wish we could get in-place SVG files on the wiki as we did on docs.shapeoko.com)

Any further discussions, suggestions or kibbitzing would be welcome.

As a complete novice who has never done cnc milling or built a shapeoko it would be enormously helpful to me to have some sort of Quick Start guide and/or check list.
I know there are many variations of what can be done in terms of software and hardware but there has to be something that gives simple guidance on what to do next after you've assembled the machine. The "Congrats on building the SO3, Now What Guide" in a simple easy way to follow along without having to search and search. Step by step instruction would be great but probably unrealistic so a check list in order still helpful. Testing the machine? first time. Calibrating the machine first time? Code basics? The "$100" or "M something" codes people speak of.

Assume the reader knows nothing. This last bit is key since there's a lot of discussion in the forum by folks who do know a ton and there are many times that I have no idea what you're referring to - however it is fun to hunt down the knowledge. We've been spoiled by full plug and play but if I can get to plu & pla I'd be happy.

Thanks. I signed up for GRZ Software's Free Crash course in CNC and its very helpful. Come's from a total novice POV. Just what I needed. While GRZ is a separate thing from Carbide3D/Shapeoko, the same guy is part of both companies. Extremely helpful and responsive.
