Obviously, since many others have built and innovated off of the Openbuilds 1010 already, this is far from earth-shattering, but my LEAD 1010 is nearing completion. I have powered the system, jogged the gantry and Z-axis, and run the "Hello World" example enough to satisfy myself that the machine is functional. The power supplier is mounted below the tabletop on the right hand side using aluminum L-brackets. The only interesting part of that is that I use avnuts instead of nuts and bolts to put the one necessary joint in place. The other connections were directly into the threaded holes in the power supply and SPAX screws into the tabletop. The wheels on my carriages have all gone whompus. I think this contributed to a disparity between the left and right Y axis carriages and a clicking sound that happened when the carriages neared the front. I will be attempting to properly adjust the wheels on all the Carriages (or trollies, if you like) before running again. I opted to use Powertec T-track for the spoiler board because, frankly, I had it laying around and wasn't doing anything else with it at the moment. In order to not eat up too much head space, I routed the channels for the T-track into the MDF. This resulted in a fine layer of brown dust being applied to everything in my garage shop as the wind was out of the south and MDF returns to its default particulate state when hit with a router bit. I also messed up a fair bit until I "got into the swing" of setting up my router guides for the cuts. (Hence the orange hammer in the one picture. One slot too tight, one too loose, the others close enough to right.) In order to have the T-track just shy of the mounting surface on the MDF, I had to cut just a hair over 3/8". That did not leave a lot of MDF to hold things together. Fortunately, it didn't collapse between the saw horses and the 1010's bed, so that let me install the T-track using short wood screws and Gorilla Glue. The use of the GG will give strength back and fill in gaps. It does have to be cleaned off after cure, though. The reason I am using the T-track the way I am is because I plan on using dedicated tooling boards for cutting parts. Most of what I intend to do are EPP model airplane parts, flat EPP airplane kits, and then basswood nose blocks and wing tip blocks for wood sailplanes. I will also do thicker plywood parts for things like motor mounts and landing gear mounts. For thinner material and balsa, I have a 100W laser. Anyway, current status is: waiting on rubber feet and additional M5x8 mm screws. I am also waiting for some commercial clamps from Powertec, although I think I will end up with a lot of custom clamping due to the weirdness of the materials I'm working with. I am also waiting for additional T-track so I can fill up the center slots. I also ordered a new Interface controller today so that my son can run jobs on the 1010 after I develop the programs and the PC is busy running the Laser. I am going to do some DXF transfer testing with the Openbuilds CAM. I'm not entirely sure it will get me what I need for multiple cut files for a single job with bit changes. I am far more comfortable with SketchuCAM, but I feel like I need to understand how that would work with the difference in HOME position between the 1010 and my old Phlatprinter.
