Shapeoko CNC Router

Manager: Andy R
Team: Mike, Travis, Niels, Tim, Deech
Premise: Upgrade existing HobbyCNC router to a larger ShapeOko CNC platform

Project Goals and Summary:

http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Using this design, we are expanding to a 4ft x 3ft cutting area and hope to further expand into a 4ft x 8ft cutting area that will fold up onto the shop wall when not in use

Project Progress and Details:

With the final parts aquired we may begin building!

The BOM may be found here: Google Docs

Day 1 - Inventory and Initial Layout

Everything is accounted for after our long delay and the layout looks to be good as expected.  Some tweaking will need to be done when we expand to the 4x8' frame upgrade, but for now on this 4x3' the 3 motor option looks fine.

Storage or Location: All materials are being stored on top of the current CNC table.
