Then I have started the build.
After all the printing and some test assembely I realized that the corner parts came out useless from the printer, back to printing…
The table i ready! And i started to build the controller. I will be running Mach3.

What was wrong with the corners?July 12, 2019 at 8:48 am #105932
They craked when I tigthen the bolts. So I guess i something went wrong in the print!July 12, 2019 at 8:54 am #105933Erwin VigiliaParticipant
I see a potential problem with your control setup up: your DIN rails need a proper holder and chiller to keep that liquid at the proper temperature!

Maybe. But also there isn’t a need to really tighten the bolts. Watch out for over tightening.July 14, 2019 at 6:21 am #106079JohannesParticipant
Following. Nice to see someone else from Norway! What controller are you using?July 22, 2019 at 8:16 am #106762
Things are going forward here!
The main frame is set up with new corner brackets, the diagonals are dead on, and the table and frame is leveled with a machinist level!! 0.02mm/m
The controller is more or less done, all the motors are tested and working. The Z-axis is mounted and movement is tested. I will be running Mach3 for the controller on a dedicated PC.
Erwin: For the cooling i have a rather large watercooler for the spindle. Could be that i need an external cooling loop for some extra equipment…
The VFD, spindle and cooler is something i got from a place I was at work. It was mounted to a machine i did a retrofit on. And they was throwing it away. Good for me! I’m missing some cables, but have all the documentation!
