Pictures of finished machines

Post by edwardrford » Wed Feb 26, 2014 3:00 am

All,

I'm in the process of building a gallery page that shows off a collection of our finished (assembled) machines. If you are interested in having your machine displayed, please reply with the picture attached (min resolution 800x600), and a (brief) description of your setup. This is open to both v1 and v2 owners.


Thanks!
-Edward

Does this include heavily modified machines, or those that still closely resemble their shapeoko roots? I am waiting on a couple more parts and I will have my machine back together for some pics.

Shouldn't they all be on the wiki?

http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/images/7/7 ... mk-iii.JPG

basics in my signature line per Rule #10 ( http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... f_ShapeOko ) and everything else is written up on the wiki, but for full disclosure:

Shapeoko 1 #364 (rebuilt)

* ¼″ drive shaft
* inverted belts on the outside (using the NEMA 23 holes)
* aluminum spacers
* double MakerSlide (375mm) X-Axis
* Acme Screw Z-axis
* 1M Y (motor rotated 45 degrees)
* Harbor Freight ¼″ Trim Router spindle
* Zip tie / race track cable management
* Zip tie / eye bolt belt anchors w/ ¼″ aluminum rod and 1" steel
* AtomCNC control board
* enclosure made of Lego bricks
* torsion box bed made of scraps of particle board
* T-nuts and metal-working side-vice for work-holding

I guess I should take a nicer, less cluttered picture....

@animal Yes, heavily modified machines are welcome! The idea for the page is too show off the variety of assembled machines.

@will there might be some on the wiki but this isn't a mutually exclusive thing. Again, the idea is to have a more public facing page to show off our machines.

I'm sure once you see the page, It will make more sense to everyone. I need at least 16 machines to complete the page.

I've been steadily upgrading my Shapeoko 2 for cutting larger model airplane parts, signs, and added rigidity for cutting metal.

12v LED work lights on Y rails.
Makita RT0701c router.
Custom Makita mounts based on the DW660 mounts.
Dust shoe based on the WillAdams design.
Mechanical limit switches.
Seeed Studio protoshield for limit switch noise filtering.
Doubled Y axis rails with 40x20.
T-slot bed made from Mitsumi 80x20 and 40x20.
Added 2 additional v-wheels to Z axis.
Drag chain from Inventables.
Work clamps based on the Inventables design.
Rotated X/Y axis so the former Y axis is now the X. Home is bottom left in the photos.

As I did the Y upgrade I decided to get rid of the terminal blocks and go with wiring option 1. I've quickly decided that's probably not a good idea because both ends are soldered and will not fit through the drag chain. I'll probably go back to terminal blocks as I get time. Luckily I left myself plenty of shielded wire.

I have a power supply, fan, e-stop button and other components on order for an electronics enclosure. I've already added the panel connectors, which you can see in one of the photos. Currently the electronics sit on my workbench with a fan pointed at them. Crude but it works. Hopefully the enclosure will come together in the next few weeks.

Y extended to 1000mm with Mitsumi 80x20 and 40x20. Y rails doubled. Mechanical limit switches, connectors, and drag chain from Inventables. I haven't installed the 1000mm work lights yet.

Will,

Do you have any more information on what is holding your zip-tied drag chain? Looks like an elegant solution and may be cheaper than real drag chain.

Edward:

Stock SO2
Dewalt DNP611 Router with Precise Bits Collet
ABS 3D Printer Router Mounts
Custom Acrylic Dust Shoe v1
T-nut work holding w/ 3D printed clamps (works like a champ!)
HobbyCNC Driver Board w/ LinuxCNC driver PC

Next week it'll be a 1000mm x 1500mm machine, rails are assembled but its time to move the carriages over (tonight) and re-wire the motors.

Yes, feel free to email me directly. edward at shapeoko dot com.

Also, if you already have a wiki entry for your machine, go ahead and include the link so I can do some cross referencing.

It's in the wiki: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... a-Zip_Ties --- pretty straight-forward, though if I had it to do again, I'd flatten out the cable bundles and put zip ties around and in-between the wires.
