Re: How can I do this

This did not work for me, I went through and got the SVG file, but My version of Sketchup (v2018) would not open the file, maybe you are using an earlier version. NOPE! I actually have the latest version of 2019. It's probably because you don't have the extension installed: https://github.com/tcard...

Re: Can someone please help

Where do I connect the ground wire for the cnc end stops and where do I connect the other wire for the end stop. I am stuck and have been stuck on this part for the last several months. Any of the pins marked as ground can be used. (They are all internally connected.) THIS is exactly the kind of in...

Another smart one, that seems to never make typo mistakes.
Be a bit more progressive.

Thanks for the reply.
I have Fusion 360, but use Sketchup for most things, and have just found an extension for Cam, which, after a little playing around, find it to works really well.
Mind sharing? I too use SU and have been wondering about this.

Re: How can I do this

Sooo easy...
Crop everything out of picture you dont want (including text)
open with Inkscape, trace bitmap, save as SVG file.
Then import into Sketchup and make it whatever size you like including thickness.
Takes a couple minutes at most.

Re: mounting raspberry Pi - CNC combo

How about just put the whole thing into a case with cooling fans?
I've already designed a case with many different options to choose from.

Re: 3 Channels Only Version?

Most of us turned towards Raspberry PI because of the small form factor. Having a HAT that extends 2 centimeters outside the PI boundaries is a bit out of purpose. That's not at all the reason myself or most other people use the Raspberry Pi. It's a far better choice than any Arduino board! It's ba...
