The FARM OX is Dual mode/function 4 axis rotary machine (X,Z,A & C) based around two C-Beams. 1000mm and the 250mm. This machine would be controlled by MachineKit powered by a BeagleBone Black.
To be more specific, a BBB with a DB25 Cape to an 4 Axis Driver board. And teamed up with a small 5~7” Touchscreen to as as a DRO, Control & Status of the machine.
The last image is a strip of addressable LEDs which will be directly controlled by MachineKit via a custom HAL. It will be use to provide normal lighting and visual status messages of what the machine is doing. i.e. slow pulse green - 'Status Ready'. slow pulse yellow - 'Feedhold'. Hard flash red - 'Error'. etc.
The scope of this project is to design & build this machine, configure MachineKit- And make a pre-made image that has the correct profile (config/tuning file for MachineKit) To make it ready ‘Out of the box’ so to speak.
This is a WIP. I am still working on a couple of adjustments to make assembly easier. And there is a couple parts I still need to model in.
More info will be provided soon.
