I have some ideas for some figures… but it will be a while before I can get to them.
I have the replacement bed and LED bars to install. @patafoto and I have been working on a dust head and I have to make that first; probably a few prototypes to get right. Looking into @Randy style LED rings… which means some rewriting of the machine.
I’m working on a Nomad post for SharpCAM. I have a BobCAD-CAM post being developed for the Nomad via my BobCAD-CAM support agreement. I’ll have to test those completely before I do any serious work with them.
I’ve used MeshCAM in the past and am in the process of refamilarizing myself with it.
Once the machine is set up to my satisfaction, I said I would do a zeroing tutorial. Then I can take up a challenge.
Oh, I’ve also got a PocketNC arriving shortly and I have to do a 5 axis post for that too… and test it… and qualify it.
No, I’m not busy… but loving it
This may surprise some but I run my machines pretty hard. Before I start projects I do quite a few feeds and speeds experiments on a new machine… to get the feel of the beast. I don’t just jump right in.
I was reading when the Nomad arrived late Friday afternoon… the curing times for the commercial sealants I was using on this:
That’s the enclosure for the PocketNC I designed and was working on while awaiting the arrive of the Nomad.
Yes, that’s a 2x2x12 bar of 6061-T6511 I plan to use for a few projects.
