Build Photos

I made a time-lapse movie of the assembly process (up until the point where the Z bearing did not fit the Z mount plate, so I called it a day), but I’m having some technical difficulties with that.  So here are some photos of the finished machine instead.

  1. Looking great!

    Could you please tell me the outer dimensions of the eShapeOko (width, length, height incl mounted Motors and everything) so that i can start building my MDF base-plate while waiting for my kit to ship 😉

  2. Thank you!

    The recommended minimum size for the waste board is 550mm x 420mm, but the machine extends beyond that. As little as 510mm x 360mm will work, in a pinch, if you put the brackets on the inside. When not operating, with the gantry somewhere in the middle and the Z axis lowered, the machine fits in a box about 570mm x 520mm x 360mm. When operating, it needs a little more space, about 610mm x 520mm x 460mm as a bare minimum. This is measured on my machine with NEMA17 motors 48mm long, with the standard belt configuration. Alternate belt configurations on X may add 20..30mm to the length.
