Re: Printrbot Crawlbot ???

I don't believe that Printbot sold very many of them, and with a quick giggle didn't find any complementary non-marketwank comments from anybody that actually used one. I think it may have been one the distractions that kept Printrbot from succeeding. It's been discussed here before, some of those c...

Re: crawlbot opendesk

... with people who want to build them for either personal use or sale. How adept are you at using the xcarve? If you expect to make money with the crawlbot, how good are you at pricing your work to make a reasonable return, and then selling your services? If it's all for fun that doesn't matter, ...

Re: Crawlbot Test Cut Issue

So it turns out this was nothing wrong with the machine and nothing wrong with what I was doing. After trying it again a couple times with the Printrbot control software, I decided to try it in ChiliPeppr. It turns out ChiliPeppr worked perfectly fine and cut the Printrbot logo sample as expected. -...

Re: Crawlbot Test Cut Issue

Does your gcode sender let you preview the cutting? Does your Z move up and down as you expect otherwise (your sender or control program should have manual axis moves)? If so, the sample gcode is likely missing the move to safe height between the two cutouts. Otherwise your Z isn't moving up (look f...

Crawlbot Test Cut Issue

Hi, Hopefully there's at least one other Crawlbot owner here who might be able to help me... I've set up my Crawlbot and am trying to cut the PB logo test, but I'm running into issues. The Crawlbot cuts the first hole in three passes, but when ...

No. It wasn't running while I was there. Maybe because they didn't have a vacuum and venting system for it?

Re: Crawlbot!

Shoots that idea, shouldn't be too hard to build an equivalent for a whole lot less than $4K. Not a lot there.

I did find a reference that you connect belts to the corners of your 4x8 sheet, so it must be belt driven and the skate wheels are just for support.

Re: Crawlbot!

I wonder if their software will be similar to Chilipeppr?

Does it look like the black strips on either side are belts? That's what I thought at first, but I don't see them looped over pulleys.

Edit: I zoomed in, and it does look like they go over the pulley but are obscured behind a cover of sorts.

Crawlbot!

Brook's latest toy . I like the concept - it's not the first router that drops on the project (Handibot anyone?), but it's all in the execution. Pull out that sheet of plywood, drop on the router, and start cutting (or use it as a base for smaller stuff, not everybody limits themselves to 3/4 hardwo...
