Premise: Upgrade existing HobbyCNC router to a larger ShapeOko CNC platform
Project Goals and Summary:
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.
This will be a open to public class, We have a few Arduino's and laptops to use however it is best if you are able to bring a Arduino and Laptop. We will be going over sensor usage. This includes light,temp and ultrasonic and describing a few more. Sensors allow's a Arduino to sense the world around it. There will be sensor kits to purchase that will cost ~ 8-10 dollars.

A Nightmare at the Science Center
Saturday, October 8th
This is an introductory class for using a wood lathe. This is an industrial model and can stand a lot of use, so I would like to be able to share it with the group. Come planning to try the lathe (i.e. wear work clothes and plan to get dirty.)
