Be safe, Stay Happy, Hope. - The Build Guild
You guys know me for my work with the Shapeoko 3. It's been a good machine but with some caveats. Belt stretch and breaking, Z movement loosing steps, very heavy to move by yourself, and needing a computer to be constantly tethered to use it.
In comes the Onefinity. Created by the people who make the Suck It dust boot, this machines solves all the major faults of the Shapeoko and Xcarve. X, Y, and Z Axis use ball screws standard. Linear Bearings on all axis, no belts anywhere to be found. The controller is so powerful that it runs its own built in software so no computer needs to be connected to it to send or run files. Finally, no computer is needed in the dusty shop.
I'm one of the first 'influencers' to receive this beast so make sure to be following me on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. I'll be sure to post lots of videos about the machine and its capabilities. Check out their announcement video below.
You can find Onefinity CNC at www.onefinitycnc.com. Make sure to follow them on Instgram and Facebook as well @onefinitycnc.
Can't wait to show you what it's all about!
Bear Hunt Design File, FREE Download, for Children during Corona Virus. For Laser, CNC, 3D Printer and Paper Printer.
With all the crazyiness going on in the world during the corona virus, covid-19, I love the fact that people are hiding bears around their homes for children to 'hunt' for during walks and bike rides. I designed a very simple file that can be used on a cnc, laser cutter, 3d printer, vinyl cutter or just a regular everyday home printer that you can print out on paper for kids to color.
Please feel free to use these files as you'd like. Please tag me, email me, or leave a comment on the socials so I can see what you do with the, @myerswoodshop.
We're in this together! Let's bring a smile to the faces of children.
*This is a ZIP file. You will need to 'unzip' the file to access the files*
