    Re: How to Start Clothing Business from Zero?

    Get some clothing. Sell it. Repeat with more clothing, etc.

    Re: CNC converted G0602 is all over the place.

    That doesn't look too bad to me. A lathe like that isn't going to reliably hold tolerances finer than .001", and if you're off by .0005" you have to double the inaccuracy on a turned part. Spend...

    Re: The spindle is not starting

    Is there an interlock between the water cooling system and the spindle's on-off function? Is the pump running when you're trying to trigger the spindle?
  4. Re: Need help, building CNC machine for steel and wood

    I'm looking at your picture and trying to figure out what's going on. It looks like you've got two frames mounted vertically, quite close together, that each have a narrow stage which moves up and...

    Re: Need advice on my 24" Y axis build

    [It would be easier to help with this if everything was in the same thread. Are you building your own clay extruder, or buying one prefabricated?]

    Have you asked the seller about this yet? Apparently they do support through ebay messages; how is that working so far? If you can't get it to work, they claim to have 12 month replacement warranty;...
  7. Re: Looking to get New motors, Any advice ???

    That would be a better motor for your setup than the one you've got, which has too much induction even for your high-voltage supply (it wants about 96 volts to run optimally). But it's really rare...

    Re: Newbie With Facemill Danger..LOL

    How deep a cut were you attempting? Especially on a small mill like yours, a facemill can't be expected to take a very heavy cut. Try to do as light a cut as you can (like .005"), using plenty of...

    Re: Table origin shifting after setting

    It sounds like you're losing steps. This happens when stepper motors try but fail to reach a commanded position. In an open-loop stepper system, there is no feedback mechanism to compare the...

    Interesting. Does this scan continuously until the part is captured entirely, moving the device and part, or does it scan one view, turn off, and then scan another one, collecting a series of scans...

    Re: motor sizing?

    Are you providing a planetary gear for this rotary axis, or just sticking a chuck on the end of a motor? With the gearing, you can use a much smaller motor than with the direct-drive plan. The ratio...

    Re: Direction of finish pass

    It sounds like you've got your material cantitevered out into empty space. This, as you've noticed, is not conducive to smooth cutting. I'd suggest supporting the far end and clamping it down (or if...

    Re: 1.5m by 1.5m cnc at rigidity

    Steel box tubes are stiffer than aluminum extrusions, and cost less. If you build a machine with big enough pieces of box tube and pay attention to details, you might end up with a machine that will...

    Re: Roland PNC-5000

    If it's buzzing, it probably is getting the signal to move, but can't. Since stepper motors themselves rarely go bad, I'd check for mechanical problems first; see if the axis in question moves freely...

    Like others on this thread, I don't believe that aluminum extrusion-based frame will do what you're expecting. If you really want to be able to mill metals, you're looking for an entirely different...
  23. Re: Engraving (stone) with 3018 pro for prototype project

    Those plated diamond tools will work great for the first minute or so, less well in 5 minutes, and not at all after ten minutes of routing (if it doesn't break first). The trouble is that all the...

    Re: JPG / MeshCAM

    To make normal pistol grips with curved surfaces, you'd need a 3D program. 2D would just get you a cutout of the shape, and 2,5D would give you the cutout with "stairsteps" on the surface.
