Build Log

Date Activities
2015-04-24
  • Screwed down the main table
2015-04-26
  • Rebuild Y axis motor plate in OpenSCAD, and lasercut it.
2015-04-30
  • Printed new guides for the Y axis belt [1] -> A little to big.
  • Screwed new Y axis motor plate into place. Belt a little too loose. Need to place pulleys a little higher.
2015-05-03
  • Printed parts to hold 2 endstops on the Y axis. Endstops are in place now, but not yet connected.
2015-06-14
  • Connected endstops to Arduino controller
  • Updated grbl on Arduino to 0.8c (custom compiled, to accommodate for different pin configurations, and homing only on X and Y [2])
  • Testdrives

Problems:

  • Noise on the endstops, triggered e.g. when starting the spindle -> maybe bigger pullups?
  • Right X endstop cannot be triggered, due to size of the z-axis sled

Issues
