Last weekend I saw a sisyphus table in an art gallery. I was totally fascinated. After a few hours of research, here I am. I think I am ready to order the parts and start building my Zenxy.
I am going to order almost all the parts from v1 engineering.
I know I have to use the calculator to compute the work area, x and y rail length, and belt length given the drawing area you want.
Here are a few questions:
What rail size do you recommend for my first built? I saw a post about this but I can’t seem to find it.
What type of rails should I get?
Can you share your favorite shop to get them (I am in the US)?
For the control board I was thinking about getting the SKR PRO1.2 directly from V1 engineering. It comes with the firmware and seems to have good documentation. Do you approve?
Anyone using the SKR PRO1.2: how do you upload files to the controller? I am asking because I’d love to be able to remotely upload files without having to copy them to a SD card. I see it has wifi capabilities, does that mean you can dump the files via ftp or you use some other protocol? Is there any benefit on hooking a raspberry pi to the controller can you even do so?
My idea is to build the zenxy without any frame/table first. Once it works I will add the other parts: sand bed, sand, ball, glass and table frame.
P.S: If you are in South Carolina, send me a msg, I’d love to talk to you.
