Shapeoko Mill

The Shapeoko needs the following work done on it to be in use at MakeIt Labs. Noah Schreiber will be hosting a meeting at the labs on thursdays during open house for fixing it for there's a lot of work to be done. The work that needs to be done has been listed below.

1. The shapeoko needs a cad drawing of itself for all of the next steps.

2. We need cable chains on the xy axis.

3. Figure out a way to wire the shapeoko into a single outlet.

4. Emergency stop button is a must.

5. On off switch.

6. New and improved dust collection system.

7. A way of attaching the electronics to the shapeoko with a redesigned psu/motherboard case.

8. And potentially more as we go along.There will be more updates about this as time goes on. If anyone is willing to help me out on Thursday nights to get this done that would be appreciated. Thanks!

In late 2018 or 2019 I Noah Schreiber had drawn numerous cad files for the shapeoko. They were designed to be 3D printed and mounted on the shapeoko. These parts included cable chains for the shapeoko, a cable chain mount for the x axis that extended to the y axis, and a few others. All these files need to be 3D printed in various quantities. All these files are listed below and were designed in fusion at the time.

Phase 1 Assembly

Phase 2 Trouble shooting

Phase 3 Make stuff with it

    The shapeoko is a cnc machine that is capable of milling soft materials like almost all plastics, and wood. This cnc do to recent upgrades can't mill anything bigger than probably 12" by 12" by 2.5". It might be capable of milling materials like aluminum but that is not it's purpose at the labs. We have a tormach cnc for a reason. The shapeoko is under current maintenance and management by Noah Schreiber. He is the shapeoko RM. The shapeoko has a set of rules for using it. Please read below for more details.
