    Hi all,

    What a blast this has been to learn and build. Thank you to everyone who put this together and all the valuable contributions by other builders.

    ST1
    I went with 24″ pipes, requiring a platform that was 28″ square. The base is 1/4″ plywood with oak side rails to provide stability and insuring a flat surface.

    ST2
    The size also allowed for easy mounting of the miniRambo under the surface and the LED screen on the side.

    ST3
    The legs are temporary so I can get it working and debug. I still haven’t come up with a table to install it in, but at some point I’ll have to decide what to do.

    I ordered the wrong magnet and so I can’t see the ball tracing a pattern yet, but once I get the correct magnet I’ll post a video.

    I have been able to get the unit to draw a simple circle and to home properly. So I feel that I just need to continue the build to the finishing point where there is a piece of furniture.

    Thanks

    Mark

    Cool! My zen is still sitting in a box from the move still. I need to get my butt in gear.

    Made my first images in the sand (baking soda).

    This was a simple pattern.

    I am really impressed by Sandify and all that its capable of. I grabbed an example Sisyphous .thr file and converted it, and it turned out great.

    I’m still getting use to the firmware and when you need to home the unit.

    Next step is to start in on the table frame so that is looks like a piece of furniture.

    Agreed, me too, every once and a while Jeff Gets too much time on his hands and it does all kinds of new stuff.
