==Summary==
The following is a comprehensive list of all parts required to build the standard version of the ShapeOko cnc mill. Some parts such as nuts, socket head cap screws, washers, and wires are commodity parts found in most hardware/home improvement stores. Other parts, such as [stepper motors], [stepper drivers], [power supplies], or [microcontrollers] are less likely to be found in a local store, and will probably have to order from the online suppliers. Other parts, such as the [front] and [back] frame plates and the [motor mount plates] were designed specifically for this project and are custom manufactured.
 
  
Part availability and clarity are two focuses of the ShapeOko project. This page is your resource to find the descriptions and sources for each part you will need in order to build a ShapeOko mill.

This is an archive of the SO1 build instructions. There is a [[BOM|B.O.M. for the SO2 here]] and for the SO3 at [[B.O.M.]]. A general overview is available at [[Parts|Parts Overview]].

The following is a detailed list of specialty parts required to build the standard version of the ShapeOko CNC mill. Some parts such as nuts, socket head cap screws, washers, and wires are commodity parts found in most hardware/home improvement stores (please see the list under Additional / Commodity Items on the [[Purchasing]] page). Other parts, such as [[Parts#E1|stepper motors]], [[Parts#E3|stepper drivers]], [[Parts#E2|power supplies]], or [[Parts#E4|microcontrollers]] are less likely to be found in a local store, and will probably have to be ordered from the online suppliers. Other parts, such as the [[Parts#S5|front and back]] frame end plates and the [[Parts#S4|motor mount plates]] were designed specifically for this project and are custom manufactured.

||In newer ShapeOko kits, 4 x 0.125" spacers have been replaced with 2 x 0.25" spacers. An additional 4 x .25" spacers are also included for use with the smooth idlers
+
||The important thing is the overall dimension. In older ShapeOko kits, where 4 x 0.125" spacers were used, newer kits replace them with 2 x 0.25" spacers. An additional 4 x .25" spacers are also included for use with the smooth idlers. One can increase a machine's rigidity by using metal spacers instead. By specification, #10 bore spacers are slightly too small, but can often be used, #12 of course will fit w/ room to spare.[http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1569#p12354] Available from [https://www.inventables.com/technologies/aluminum-spacers Inventables (#25312-03 or 25312-13)] [http://www.machinest.com/spacers/inventory_tables/sales_3_8/as38-12-16.htm AluminumSpacers.com (Machinest.com) 3/8 OD x .219 ID x 1/4 Long]

||Four were used in the original method of belt anchoring, an additional eight were used to stand the motor off from the older mount plate design. Additional washers may be needed to adjust spacing (a stack is useful as a stand-in for a 1/4" spacer), to fasten the machine to the base, &c.

Please note that NEMA 17 motors are available w/ 1/4" shafts instead of the more typical 5mm which is assumed in these plans --- if such motors, or NEMA 23s are used, you will need to source pulleys w/ a matching i.d.

||[[File:Rev_3_0_stacked.jpg|thumb|Revision 3.0 board on an Uno]]||The Shapeoko was designed to use the Pololu stepper drivers, and this Arduino shield makes assembly and wiring very easy and straight forward. Another option is to create your own board. A good example of this is [[User:DrRob]], who has made his own shield using perfboard. Alternately, one could use a custom board which incorporates both an Arduino and a stepper shield such as the [[AtomCNC]] (97.8mm x 95.5mm (inches: 3.85" x 3.76")), which was available at http://atomsofttech.com/AtomWiki [[File:Atomcnc.jpg|thumb]] (Revision 1 board shown). Using an all-in-one board makes the whole wiring and usage of the Shapeoko fairly simple. A single board makes further features such as an optional 50mm fan mount, or a 10A @ 240VAC relay for rotary tool ON/OFF control, or a Homing/Limit I/O and GPIO for future use more affordable.

Note that there is a 1mm precision washer which goes in-between the two bearings. The specification for this part allows a bit of variance in the sizing.

There have been a number of machines which have had issues w/ the Z-axis nut. One solution is of course an [[ACME Z-axis]].

Latest revision as of 09:36, 10 September 2018

These are the instructions for the SO1 and are here for historical reasons only.

If you are building an SO2, please see the instructions at http://docs.shapeoko.com/

Summary

This is an archive of the SO1 build instructions. There is a B.O.M. for the SO2 here and for the SO3 at B.O.M.. A general overview is available at Parts Overview.

The following is a detailed list of specialty parts required to build the standard version of the ShapeOko CNC mill. Some parts such as nuts, socket head cap screws, washers, and wires are commodity parts found in most hardware/home improvement stores (please see the list under Additional / Commodity Items on the Purchasing page). Other parts, such as stepper motors, stepper drivers, power supplies, or microcontrollers are less likely to be found in a local store, and will probably have to be ordered from the online suppliers. Other parts, such as the front and back frame end plates and the motor mount plates were designed specifically for this project and are custom manufactured.

Part availability and clarity are two focuses of the ShapeOko project. This page is your resource to find the descriptions and discussion links for each part you will need in order to build a ShapeOko mill. Please see the Purchasing page for a list of vendors, and where possible, direct purchase links.

ShapeOko Assemblers Pack

Many of the parts are available in the ShapeOko Assemblers Pack.

The important thing is the overall dimension. In older ShapeOko kits, where 4 x 0.125" spacers were used, newer kits replace them with 2 x 0.25" spacers. An additional 4 x .25" spacers are also included for use with the smooth idlers. One can increase a machine's rigidity by using metal spacers instead. By specification, #10 bore spacers are slightly too small, but can often be used, #12 of course will fit w/ room to spare.[1] Available from Inventables (#25312-03 or 25312-13) AluminumSpacers.com (Machinest.com) 3/8 OD x .219 ID x 1/4 Long

Four were used in the original method of belt anchoring, an additional eight were used to stand the motor off from the older mount plate design. Additional washers may be needed to adjust spacing (a stack is useful as a stand-in for a 1/4" spacer), to fasten the machine to the base, &c.

Originally, an 8mm screw was specified (and is pictured), since, this has been changed to 10mm. Larger machines may benefit from longer lengths. The eShapeOko uses 14 and 18mm by default.[2]

When used w/o an eccentric spacer, this is too long --- a 22mm (or even 20mm) bolt makes up that difference.

CAD Data

(see this page for information on wiring stepper motors)

The Shapeoko can use NEMA 17 or NEMA 23 stepper motors. The 58 oz-in motors listed are sufficient to drive the Shapeoko, but larger motors can be used. Forum Discussion.

Please note that NEMA 17 motors are available w/ 1/4" shafts instead of the more typical 5mm which is assumed in these plans --- if such motors, or NEMA 23s are used, you will need to source pulleys w/ a matching i.d.

E2 Power Supply 24V 4.2A Specialty Vendors, Electronics Suppliers 1
E2.JPG
The size of the power supply should be at least 4.2A at 24V. A larger supply (for example, a 4.5A) will work fine. The size is based on the requirements of the stepper motors you choose. Power Supply
E3 Stepper Driver Pololu A4988 compatible Specialty Vendors 3

The stepper drivers that the Shapeoko is designed to use is the Pololu A4988. There are other drivers that are compatible, including the Pololu-compatible open source Stepstick.
E4 Arduino (328P Compatible) Specialty Vendors 1

Any Arduino 328P compatible board should work. Multiple vendors sell these boards, and price varies by vendor and features. Alternately the machine can be directly controlled by a computer, see Alternative Electronics.

Electronics Suppliers 1
Revision 3.0 board on an Uno
The Shapeoko was designed to use the Pololu stepper drivers, and this Arduino shield makes assembly and wiring very easy and straight forward. Another option is to create your own board. A good example of this is User:DrRob, who has made his own shield using perfboard. Alternately, one could use a custom board which incorporates both an Arduino and a stepper shield such as the AtomCNC (97.8mm x 95.5mm (inches: 3.85" x 3.76")), which was available at http://atomsofttech.com/AtomWiki
Atomcnc.jpg
(Revision 1 board shown). Using an all-in-one board makes the whole wiring and usage of the Shapeoko fairly simple. A single board makes further features such as an optional 50mm fan mount, or a 10A @ 240VAC relay for rotary tool ON/OFF control, or a Homing/Limit I/O and GPIO for future use more affordable.

There have been a number of machines which have had issues w/ the Z-axis nut. One solution is of course an ACME Z-axis. Forum user ejs decided on directly addressing the part itself in A new Z-axis nut - metal on metal w/ built in anti-backlash.
