classic router with a ab table
HC.Carbo published a new build:
Read more about this build...
looks like its getting complicated now
what are going to make ??
what is your vision (of the product) that you are making that machine for??
aim is to make few of my 3d printed figures in wood (not a big fan of pla)
very cool stuff!!
was missing 1 driver, most of the pic's online where for 2 stepper in the opposite direction.
this was working for me
have 6 drivers now, but was running into another issue...homing
@HC.Carbo Great build man! Can't wait to see this one in action. Its really going to be cool to watch it create some of your art. Looking forward to seeing some of your projects as you learn to use this mad machine
he he 242
grts from Belgium....but you know...it never stop's
hope to cut these
ok nothing beats the steel ones... but way to expensive.
only suited for DM fans
ok, reality check today.
cool, everything works well & smooth
not a good idea to place the a/b table in the length (not practical, you can't see what is going on)
So, seems i have to modify a little. The table don't fit in the other direction (need+ 2cm more in the y)
What about a 90 degree bracket system that has the ab table mounted to it and that can be mounted to the spoiler board of the machine so you can remove it when you want to use it as a standard 3 axis mill? Just a thought but it may also block the view as well.
much better now & a/b table is also fixed on the sides (1 min. to remove )
z=15cm (still have 8cm left on the gantry)
This is going to be cool!
yeah...it cut's allu....to say it cut a part out of my A/B table
reality check 2,
Hardware wise everything ok (hence static electricity seems to be an issue)
software, mmm setup vertical no go > it cut's only 2 sides (guess the post is for horizontal) but easy to work around.
3 attempts to make a video today, but... my gopro crashed & then my laptop crashed & @ a last attempt my A table seems to turn the wrong side..
multi axis: mmm not sure, seems it doesn't work on spherical shapes...
here my test setup, little dog cut out of a champagne cork
video next week...hopefully
after 4 attempts...you can see +- a dog
rough adaptive, **** hard to zero all on the right spot. (y a little off)
done in one run
That is awesome!
Yeah - what he said!!
very cool indeed!
bang my head...just cut out the Austere Bunny, but it went wrong at the last cut. (z gantry touched the a table) grrr
Learn every week a little more
just have to set the b 45°
Little late, (no it wasn't the machine)
indexing a bunny
few flaws, but the ears are still on it
It's certainly getting there!! I don't think cork is the best material to work on, it won't give a clean finish, which I think you could get with another material.
What about a small block of some kind of plastic? What size cutter were you using?
I think you've done a great job so far. I am so impressed with this build.
3mm mill (Chinese ) , soft mat. good for testing. (2 little flaws in the toolpath)
still have to order some descent mills
(avoid to do a tool change, often it loose connection when touching the machine)
I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOUR NEXT VIDEO
Have already a soundtrack for it...now the footage
Awesome video @HC.Carbo its so exciting to see this machine coming to life, keep up the great work
The important bit!
Finally some wood, but... things went wrong
@ other hand, seems the simultaneous multi axis is working fine now.
Wanted to redo the flow (& cut some more stock of)
when i started @ the same (new) g-code line it went wrong somehow
aim is to cut the OB logo out of it
only multi-axis flow (1 direction) & contour
Sadly my center point little off
But toolpath is good, so hopefully a nice keychain next week
Finally something, flow on both sides.
gives a nice round shape on both sides.
I love this thing!
That is soooo cool!!
I could watch it for hours.
