I’d like to see 2 things on this site.
1. Links to 3D Print models for add-ons. Especially the LCD display that is sold through this site. I just finished printing one from Thingiverse that I thought was for it, but it wasn’t quite right.
2. A “Showing Off” section in the forums. I think we should display things that we have made with our machines.July 6, 2016 at 7:37 pm #14511
The “Builds and Things Built” or something like that section is exactly what you want in request 2.
A link to a LCD case or control panel file to be cut would be nice.July 6, 2016 at 7:48 pm #14512
I agree builds and things built, I can rename it if you think I should.
On the shop page for the screen I link to my screen box on thingiverse, and it is found under my things on thingiverse as well as a bunch of others from other people.July 6, 2016 at 8:02 pm #14515
Good to know about the screen box link.July 7, 2016 at 5:18 am #14528
I must have missed the LCD cover link.
As far as the builds and things built, I am familiar with it but it seems to be more about builds and things built for one’s builds.July 7, 2016 at 5:36 am #14531
Things built is for what people make with their machines, but most people don’t post anything about their things built. I wish they did, because looking at a bunch of 24×24 MPCNCs is getting boring. I want to see what they can make!July 7, 2016 at 5:52 am #14532
Agreed. I haven’t exactly “made” anything cool yet other than my build. Other than making a few poster signs for our Cub Scout parade float, I have only done a couple of tests and a sign for my space. That will change eventually.July 11, 2016 at 3:05 pm #14738
Yea, builds and things built, should be separate sections. “Shit I built” would be an awesome section, but you know, kids… I’ve posted a few things I’ve built though.July 11, 2016 at 3:21 pm #14740
For me its more like “4th try is a charm” or “Sh*t I tried to build a few times but I’m only gunna show you the good one”
I have been working on a cool little LCD case I hope to put up tomorrow, fingers crossed. I am at literally the 5th try….but the next one is gunna be perfect, hahaha yeah right.July 11, 2016 at 6:29 pm #14752
Yea, I have a pile of “well that didn’t work” plywood under my chopsaw now. So far my biggest issue is getting the zero back to where it’s supposed to be after a bit change when carving stuff. If I’d just remember to write down my x and y offset from my endstops I’d probably be golden! I did make a z probe finally. Need to pick up a cheap set of shims from harbor freight so I can steal the thinnest blade for it still. I’m using a chunk of aluminum from an expansion port cover from the back of a computer right now. Soldered an alligator clip to the other wire and just clamp it to the bit and hit the z home button, works every time so far!July 11, 2016 at 7:46 pm #14753
Yeah, the tool changes would be pretty cool to simplify.
