Inside construction of the new Kronos Robotics workshop and lab continues.
What is "Building the KRMx02 CNC"?
It's a workbook that takes you step-by-step through the process of building your very own high speed, heavy duty CNC. As a bonus by purchasing the workbook edition from this site, you gain access to our private KRMx02 forums.
"No matter what your experience you can build this machine!"
KRMx02 Making Aluminum Booms
I needed to reduce the weight of three aluminum booms for a Y6 Hex-copter I am working on. The booms are made from 1" square aluminum stock. The plan is to remove some of the material from the boom by cutting slits and holes into the sides and top. This would will reduce the weight while still keeping the structural rigidity of the square tube. . . .
New to CNC these examples may help
In this project, I am going to take you step-by-step through the processes I use creating a part on my CNC. I will start with a idea take it from the drawing stage all the way thorough to the completed part. Even if you don't need this part, I recommend you follow along and actually create the part with me as I take you through the process. . . .
I am dust crazy. I go to all lengths to keep dust out of my shop. I have a monster central cyclone system and several high end shop vacuums, many with there own small cyclones as well.
The AirExchanger allows you to push the router cooling exhaust air out the sides without affecting the air inside your dust shoe. This allows for a smaller more efficient shoe.
The AirExchanger It took me almost a year to develop and I hove one installed on all my machines. . . .
The Super-PID is a closed loop speed controller that enables Mach 3 to take control of your router. Mach 3 will be able to start and stop your router and control its speed to as low as 5000 RPM. . . .
Milling examples from various KRMx02 CNC builders.
In my CNC books and workbooks, I take you through the installation and hookup of a parallel port based desktop PC and Mach3 to your CNC. In this project I am going to take you through the steps of getting a USB based laptop and SmoothStepper hooked up to your CNC. . . . .
