Nice build that is pretty much the same setup as my c-beam machine; even down to Pi 2 controller and drivers. It has been running great!
Great looking Build @hasemar
I was not aware of this controller it looks very nice thank for posting your Build and sharing about this.
Love the build!!! Although I've not build my first CNC Machine YET I have two of THESE beauties and a Pi3 just waiting in the wings. I'll be following your build and the discussions with Kyo to lessen the confusions and frustration when I do get there ;-)
Keep up the great work!!!
Thanks all, this site and its members have been a tremendous help!
actually cut something
Fab cover over terminal blocks and wiring
install limit switches for homing.
build platform stablizers
increase z axis rizers
I made a successful run!
Using a sharpie still. I created a text part in Solidworks and used HSM Express which is a solidworks CAM plug in. The post processor supports grbl but I noticed that it tries to use M30 which grbl does not support. It didnt affect the run though since M30 is an ending program code.
At first the c-beam ran the but the lettering was backwards. It looked fine in the controller though. After some digging I figured out that I needed to invert the x axis in grbl ($3=2) . I ran it again and it fixed the problem.
Almost ready to cut something.
Very nice! It is always exciting when you have your first successful run. I look forward to seeing what kind of projects you create with your cnc.
Congrats on your first run...very cool
