Shapeoko build night

Shapeoko

On June 2nd, 2014 it was announced that LVL1 won a Shapeoko2 CNC machine kit in the Inventables 50 States 3D Carving Machine Giveaway contest.

The Shapeoko is a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine which in its default configuration uses a light-duty rotary tool as the spindle. It is a 3-axis machine; able to move the mounted tool up/down, left/right, and forward/backward under computer control with some measure of repeatable precision.

This Friday night (8/22/14) we are going to start building this machine. Drop by at 8 pm if you are interested in helping. It should be fun and a great opportunity to learn a little about CNC hardware.

Meanwhile, here is the LVL1 wiki page for you to read: wiki.lvl1.org/Shapeoko_CNC_build

Hope to see you there!

These are for my Boy Scout troop. They are being made on my homemade CNC machine. The plans for the CNC I used are here. There are newer plans now – these will be the next machine I build. This is where I got my electronics.

Click through the pictures, and I will tell the story.
