    Maybe i should learn first to cut something on the 3 axes :)

    g53 lol, i don't get it. :D
    Homing all axis > once hit the home/limit switch it returns x steps (1mm)
    so you are now on x,y,z 1mm > from here i set my g54
    then your post does g53 and your zero is at that 1mm o_O
    so my g54 was always off :D

    ctrl box (attempt)
    mmm how do i get my wires out ? :D

    omg,

    My table had some strange behavior & belt was already loosen.

    Opened the whole thing, seems there are some huge flaws.

    see pic, treads have different sizes, so the screws are to small.
    left:3.8mm, right:2.8mm the screw goes true the 3.8mm to the belt drive 2.8mm
    also some play on the shaft/bearings
    update: ok, the shaft was not in place.
    still some play, belt (ad some wheels din't help much)

    [​IMG]



    v wheels good for everything :)

    Meanwhile...may the 4th be with me.
    (aim is to put the 5th from the Chinese on to this one o_O )
    (will test the belt first :D )

    ok, placed a new belt. Turning the table over the axis was never so smooth.
    See to test it next weekend.
    Meanwhile some 4th axis play.
    Adaptive& parallel (flat end mill)
    was cutting @ 3mm...now i know what they mean with chips instead of dust (i usually have) :D

    soon back to 5x,

    Last week first attempt to cut 4mm acrylics...omg my first cut :ROFL: guess you know what went wrong :)

    After lowering the spindle speed & increase the move speed it went much better :)

    Still not that good, to much play on the z, moved the spoiler board 8cm higher and got very nice results (y)
    (also switched the 30cm c-beam on the sides by 50x8cm rails so i could put the x on the back (instead of on top the c-beam)

    so far my ctrl box, hope no court-circuit :nailbite:

    What you see is NOT what you get...Fusion360 multi axis :D
    Lot of times the lead in/out will ruin your cut.
    Guess i have to play more with the settings.
    Here my foam dummy to test tool path's :D
    front/back ok,
    Flow on the sides (rounding) does a strange move (but does the job)

    Almost, but WRONG :) ( yes, we call him Manneken :) ...)
    Depeche Mode (one night in Paris, back screen) by Anton Corbijn
    still have to cut a Bong speaker... :) (have printed versions)

    some entertainment between the cut's :D ^_^

    Why did you cut into the endgrain? The part comes out very very week.

    Dang it! well for whats its worth, I initially thought 'I bet this has something to do with Depeche Mode' :) Cool stuff man and great video! I like the part where Manneken claps and the particle effect bounces on the floor, nice one! Thanks for the share.

    de 30cm c-beams nog te vervangen door 50cm, zou het zowat moeten zijn. :)

    check last cut :)
    V_rail Racer

    ok, seems my ab table holds well with the new belt :) (still, pretty sure not suited for hard materials if you want precision stuff ! )
    notice that even the hexagon table has not even edges :) :) :)


    only front & back of the car is multi axis,
    (impression that f360 has still a way to go, once you use a spherical shape > no go. Don't think it's the post, test it with the big ones= same results)
    pocketing with indexing (headlights & logo)

    cnc: overlooked one thing...the noise it makes OMG :D

    something more rigid :) :) ;) (kit with high Z , so i can still use my controller & 4th axis)

    the search for a new one seems to be hard, no reply's, no stock, only the real expensive ones do reply! ...

    my eyes on a german one but, reply once a week so it takes +3 weeks to get your invoice + 3-5 weeks shipping time. OMG
