Howdy to all, as the title states I just (today) received my Nomad and 2 weeks ago my SO3, I am anxious to start making chips.
By way of introduction, I have some experience with CNC (own a post-KS Handibot - great machine but wrong form factor for me), have 30-some years of wood/metal working + much less manual machining experience. CAD design is not much of a problem, I have used V-Carve, SketchUp, and other packages. Have not spent much time under the hood with g-code but it is on my immediate projects list.
While in no way my “real job”, I do have a hobby/business where I designed some woodworking add-ons for Festool track saws (www.ripdogs.com), but everything is made by real machine shops, not myself. This is a sideline but it led me to want to be able to make better prototypes and hence provided the rational for the Nomad/SO3.
My primary question is where to locate some newbie how-to instructions for the Nomad? In particular how to use the Z-probe, the flip-jig, and any other start-from-scratch stuff that may be available. I am sure there is a ton of available information but my forum searching so far has not turned up much so I thought I would ask and introduce myself at the same time.
Looking forward to chatting with you all, and sharing some fun projects as well.
