Nice enclosure! Consider totally enclosing the AMC1280USB in metal box, to avoid EMI radiation from the PWM of the VFD drives right next to it. This will eliminate the noise to the analog feedback a lot.
But you can do this after the proper wiring and configuration and calibration.
Could not resist. Ordered me one too, although a bit less deep (300mm). Hope I can make the build as clean as you do! :-) I think I will go for a slightly different setup inside, but the idea is the same..
I am glad you are ahead of me :-) So now I can peek at your ideas and steps.. My actual build will start next week after my welding course.
sounds good Michael, those cases are almost made for the job
with a more shallow case you might not get away with using a consumer unit to house the fuses due to the depth, mine fits just right, a more shallow case and i would have been fighting for space with my layout.
Was hoping to get some movement this weekend but i hit a bit of a hold up as wasnt happy with the signal cable i had for wiring up VFD's and AMC1280, guage was to small which meant the connections wernt very secure. So rather than botch things ive ordered some 5 core 0.75 CY cable and have to wait for that to arrive.
Plenty of other little jobs to carry on with in the mean time though.
PS have fun with the welding course, hope its MIG your learning, forget ARC/Stick, its a pain in the arse.
Big milestone tonight after all the hardwork... First signs of life!!
Really proud of myself to get this far.
Took a bit of head scratching to get things moving as i didnt find the process that clear in the manual, thought i had a problem with wiring but turns out i didn't set the F1 parameter before pressing run!.
sure will do and yes all the settings should be same/ very similar. Using the VFD's is a bit overwhelming at first but after wiring one and a few hours of fiddling with them their actually fairly straight forward to use, just a ton of parameters.
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

fimmy: How's the firmware going?

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

tmcnam: I must be crazy but I still can't find the blueprints to the platform by GA-Dawg. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
