    [–] Some screenshots of Saint-14's memorial wildxlion 1 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    Sure, but Titans also got an entire D1 DLC following Saladin.

    [–] Looking for a CNC for Guitar Builds wildxlion 1 points ago in hobbycnc

    Depending on the guitar design, you don't really need all that Z. If it's like a telecaster style, then just cut as far as you can, then finish on the bandsaw and flush trim router bit. If you have carves on both sides, then you'll need to set up for 2 sided operations anyways. I use my workbee for guitar builds as well

    [–] Every damn time. wildxlion 2 points ago in gaming

    I wanna play Skyrim

    *Which system has my good save file?"

    Spend 30 minutes trying to figure out which one to play it on

    Fuck this

    [–] Why no love for the mpcnc here? wildxlion 1 points ago in hobbycnc

    There is a 1" version. The original mpcnc used 3/4" I believe because that just happened to be the most convenient at the time. The MPCNC originally was an entry in a thingiverse design contest I think.

    You probably ended up with more questions than you started with.

    [–] Aliexpress workbee / bulkman 3d - 1500x1500 : Anyone have one? wildxlion 1 points ago in hobbycnc

    Yes, 0.5", 12mm was almost there.

    Did you get a chance to do the torsion box vnslot gantry?

    [–] Aliexpress workbee / bulkman 3d - 1500x1500 : Anyone have one? wildxlion 2 points ago in hobbycnc

    Most of the nuts available won't fit in the c beam channel, so you'll have to come up with a way to mount them on the outside, or make up some plates.

    [–] Chameleon 7 Tone Paint wildxlion 3 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    I have one. John Petrucci's guitars come in this color option. Mine is an original JP6 Mystic Dream.

    [–] Aliexpress workbee / bulkman 3d - 1500x1500 : Anyone have one? wildxlion 2 points ago in hobbycnc

    If you're in the US, you could get the larger 5 start leadscrews from McMaster Carr, I think they're something like 10 or 12mm

    [–] Aliexpress workbee / bulkman 3d - 1500x1500 : Anyone have one? wildxlion 2 points ago in hobbycnc

    I have a 1500mm wide one with lead screws. There's whip, but not enough to affect my cuts, but I also don't run faster than 60-80ipm. I'm building a follower for the screws to rest on, there's a video of someone expanding a Joe's type machine and building the followers to keep the screw from whipping

    [–] Will nema 17 work for a cnc wildxlion 3 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in hobbycnc

    The carveking uses nema 17, but nema 17 is just the frame size, and doesn't tell you the capabilities of the motors. I don't know what the CK uses, but for the mpcnc/lowrider they use something like 76 oz/in

    You will have to take comparatively small cuts to a mill, but you run the risk of just rubbing at the metal, and causing it to work harden (for metal), so going very small is not a guarantee for success. Going slow and taking small bites with wood will heat and dull the cutter faster as well.

    [–] Was I expecting too much from RTX 2070? wildxlion 3 points ago in pcgamingtechsupport

    Just because the game is not graphically intensive like metro or TW3 doesn't mean the gpu is going to sit at 20% usage while gaming. Its still going to work to put out as many frames as possible, no matter the resolution.

    Now, are you getting particularly low frames or something? There's a difference between gpu running at 95% and putting out 100 fps, and 95% but only 30 fps.

    [–] Why no love for the mpcnc here? wildxlion 1 points ago in hobbycnc

    It doesn't need bigger motors, the current ones specs for it can already flex the rails, so no point in going more powerful. I put nema 23 ones (because that's what I had) on mine so it's not hard to put them on.

    You can double belt (top and bottom) or get that 15mm belt (I think) from China.

    [–] Got bad news for you pal wildxlion 4 points ago in pcmasterrace

    The Xbox one couldn't even play the MCC multiplayer at launch either.

    [–] What causes this bumpiness? First layer and some others sometimes wildxlion 1 points ago in MPSelectMiniOwners

    The bed is too close to the nozzle, so when it deposits filament, it has nowhere to go but sideways, hence the ridges.

    [–] Why don't we just boil seawater to get freshwater? I've wondered about this for years. wildxlion 1 points ago in askscience

    I live on Guam, and while we are lucky enough to have a natural aquifer under us, the islands to the north do not, so they have to turn to desalinized water for everything.

    [–] My first m-itx not so sff but I’m trying... wildxlion 1 points ago in sffpc

    I had the same case with an sfx L supply, gpu temps are fine, also there's a fan right in the front of the case to move fresh air over the gpu.

    [–] Which is better for detailed work? 1/8" V-bit or 1/16" end mill? wildxlion 1 points ago in hobbycnc

    Agree. Personally, I missed the z=0 button and started a cut, and the 1/16th bit plunged almost the whole cut length into 3/4 MDF and went about 2 inches before I stopped it so they're pretty tough. Only ever broke one ramping in too quickly/deep in aluminum.

    [–] Using CNCjs locally on a pi? wildxlion 2 points ago in hobbycnc

    Oh gotcha, well, you can try to pull up the server itself on the pi, you can use it 127.0.0.0:8080 or localhost:8080, where 8080 is the CNC.js port number. Similar to pulling up the bCNC pendant on the same machine, for me it's 8000.

    Edit: just tried, works without any connectivity so you can do it locally without a network.

    [–] Using CNCjs locally on a pi? wildxlion 3 points ago in hobbycnc

    OP literally posted that they're using that image.

    OP, you can install pixel, that's the standard gui for raspbian at least, and what I use with bCNC.
