mini CNC project[300×300mm] based on 2020 / 4020 - alum. X-profiles

EN
That is my “redesigned” idea of mini CNC router. All parts where ordered from Aliexpress or Ebay and it was not so much as cost actually.
The project took few months to assemble and to get all parts. The result is quite average but not that bad.
Axis movement is smooth with that rollers, but not very strong in that setup. If you wish to have stronger base, then your design must be with only big V-wheels, made from strong ABS plastic and maybe few of them on each side as the developer from OPEN BUILD make.

EN
In that small article will try to show you something that recently I witness and in case use the same machine to be aware of.

Woodpecker GRBL CNC Board - Firmware Update

EN
If you own CNC 2418 machine(like me), or just have Woodpecker GRBL CNC Board you can update to GRBL firmware v1.1.
But if you`re “lucky” like me,when try via Arduino IDE, you`ll hit into: “resp. = 0×0d” or similar compiler error. That is because the Atmel chip is without boot loader. Even with Xloader you`ll hit the wall. So then what?

Custom Otside Hexagon - Heidenhain Program

Тhat is my idea of custom HEXAGON creating program. You can change only 2 variables and make your hexagon. The program is demonstrated with end mill 10mm but you can use any size and the program will use Q108(tool offset radius) to calculate position.
