Re: Wiring steeper motors and reset/abort etc buttons

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

Re: Wanted a free or cheap Cam program

Not at all.
It's a free extension, you download it from SketchUCam.com.
It take a bit of working out, but there are a number of videos that explain, some good and some not so good.

Re: Finally done

Well the first effort, a small circuit board, did not turn out to well, it went through all the motions, but not a usable result.
Must go back and recheck all settings.
The spoil board failed too, the acrylic did not like silicon.
So I am building another out of plywood, see how that one goes.

Re: Finally done

Thanks Pal, just hope it works as well as it looks, have done a dry run on it and all seems to function as it should, probably will have to do some tweaking.

Re: Wanted a free or cheap Cam program

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.

Re: Finally done

the spoil board is finished.
I made it out of 6mm acrylic, it is fully waterproof, i want to try some aluminum cutting, so the next thing will be to add a water spray system.
My first project will be to try a small PCB, I will post the results.

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.
