So I finally jumped in with both feet and have a functioning Lowrider 2, dual endstops and all. I’ll toss up a few pics of the build and embed a link to a YouTube vid where I replot over the same Crown DXF just to test the accuracy/replicability of the moves.
Any feedback or input would be greatly appreciated. Pretty much a noob at CNC. I’ve done some cutting on a 4x8 AXYZ unit but don’t have much experience at all.
So the hackster version of the upper pen stabilizers are 3D printing as I’m typing this. They really locked up any pen movement and I just rely on the flex in the pen holder to give me a little Z pressure on the pen.
Oh, and here’s a question. Why is my machine cutting a mirror image of the crown based on how I have the toolpaths set up in EstlCAM? In my EstlCAM doc the origin is on the left but as you’ll see in the vid the machine is plotting it in a mirror image of the way it previews in EstlCAM.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me in this forum with a special shoutout to @jeffeb3 and @robertbu! You guys have been absolutely great and I’m LOVING this thing so far.
