Ok, so I set out to do this around Christmas but due to a day job, kids and several other activities my brother and I finished it just last weekend. So far it has milled two ‘try out jobs for me’.
The working area of my build is around 350 cm and 560 cm. We’ve got a Kress 800 attached to it. Since we had difficult with the Z axis, the max speed was 100 and is now down to 45 and it performs flawless however, not that quick, so I will probably start a testing session to see whether it can be upped to 55 or even higher.
Next is making sure the kress is mounted exactly in a 90 degree angle because it seems slightly off and seeing if I can control it from Repetier server on a Raspberry Pi. After that homing switches and getting educated on changing Bits during a job, I’ve seen several possible solutions for this but no ‘end to end’ how-to. This could really be a great subject for a blog post. I know how to do this might vary per setup, but a how-to for the default setup, ESTLCAM, Repetier Host and Marlin might help out a lot of starters.
