Hey guys, new to the lowrider, but have been following the process for quite some time on Thingiverse. Last night, I began the printing of the plastic parts, so it’s official, I’m building this thing!
I’m no stranger to 3D printing, or CNC for that matter, as I’ve had a Maslow for a while, and have made some pretty good process with the learning curve of CAM Software. One thing that really appeals to me about the lowrider is the fact that it uses the same CAM software (Estlcam) that I already use daily. Whew! Glad I don’t have to learn Fusion360 haha
I’ve been using Sketchup to design parts for 3D printing, and for CNC as well for years, and I feel like it’s time to move on to a machine that’s able to produce more accurate cuts, on the entire sheet, rather than a suspended machine that is great in the center, but not so much on the outer edges.
Anyway, just wanted to say hi to everyone, introduce myself, and give a little background info on me, so you guys could get used to seeing me around here! I’m sure I’ll be asking questions during the software portion of my build haha
