While at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, I received some ShopBot training from Jonathan Ward. I then designed this decorative table in Inkscape, edited it in PartWorks and cut it out on the ShopBot. I ran into some .dxf exporting and resizing issues, I do not recommend using Inkscape to design files for the ShopBot. I cut two tables from AC and Birch plywood with slightly different table tops. I have not yet decided how to finish the table (stain or oil).

MTM Snap – Z and X and Y Axis Working
Jonathan Ward came down from MIT to Fab Academy AS220 @ AS220 Labs to help us with our MTM snap machine. We were missing some critical parts, so he helped us get what we had in stock to work with his design. At this point the machine is working – but we need to replace the individual stepper boards with the shield (we need the increased capacitience and we think we may have cooked the boards a bit with some initial faulty wiring.) We are also waiting for some thrust bearings to come in from McMaster Carr. They should be in shortly and I will publish an update.
