Rambone first try

Post by xfredericox » Wed Nov 11, 2015 11:17 pm

I recently upgraded my shapeoko to 1x1m, installed the acme and Z-axis belt mods, added a zeroing laser, tightened the belts and got some minor configuration problems out of the way.

FINALLY my machine is now consistently doing what i need it to do.

Now, I plan to make the rambone outof 1 solid block, but to test if everything checks out, i did the 3-layer version first.

I am pretty pleased tbh. Tomorrow i'l do the fine sanding and oil it up.

enjoy

done

first pic is the shitty 3-buck slingshot i bought in a Peruvian roadside giftshop. The pouch and rubberbands were decent enough.

Tell me more about this zeroing laser? I didn't find anything here in the forum after a cursory search.

its not as fancy as you'd think i'm afraid :-)

just a laser pointer i got out of an old remote.
I mark the spot at 0,0 and can use the mark for future reference. For organic parts like this, it works like a dream! But obviously for parts with tight tolerances it wouldn't be very helpful.

Although when i think about it, it couldn't be too complicated to add a fotosensor and have it zero by measuring the beam's light output.
