We are spending the weekend @ a baseball tournament. Hope you are having some fun in the workshop.
Just DIY and Battlefield 4 Gaming today.
It's too hot to do anything but work in the workshop. I got a bit done on my cnc router yesterday. I may have to go fishing this evening when it cools down just to get out, though.
Hope you catch a break in the weather @Giarc and can get back to the workshop. Are yout building the cnc or making projects?
I am working on the CNC machine a little. I bought and cut the boards for the cutting bed area today and added a z limit switch. I took the kids to Home Depot to get the board and then we stopped for ice cream. It hit the spot. My son mixed cotton candy ice cream with rainbow sprinkles and gummy bears. Then he got mad when I told him he was eating unicorn poop.
Age 66 and still playing video games? God, there is hope for me, well, us, Mark seems to be hooked as well! Playing FallOut 4 for the second time to reset my mind from time to time.
Today it's testing Arduino Uno with DM556A drivers. I've been playing with limit switch problems as well but figured out that the values for resisters and capacitors found on the net are correct.
Back to work! Got a schematic to finish! I hope I can keep my head with my work as my pet, a small cat, will go under the knife today; she won’t be able to get kittens and I badly hate myself that I had to put her trough it… but didn’t see another way…
Holpefully I'll be doing some more assembly this weekend
There was no internet for me the last days so this came from it:
New "low budget" build, highly scalable, no custom cuts for V-Slot needed .
@Ronald van Arkel
Is that a plugin for Sketchup?
I'm a bit lost about what "that" refers to. Are you talking about the white background?
The extrusions? Plates? Hardware?
Ow yes, human plugin, check it out: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/by/openbuilds
Barry, it's easier just to go to the files tab on one of Mark Carew's builds and download full models and then manipulate the files from there. It's a lot easier to start with assemblies that already have wheels in the holes, track in alignment, etc.
Ronald, great job on creating the 3DWarehouse set. I'm guessing the next steps are adding in some sub assemblies and then full models...?
I'm not new to CAD..but really green with 3D and Sketchup...Used AutoCAD and TurboCAD for years but never any 3D..That's why I asked
