  • Coming back to life!

    Although the blog posts stopped in August of 2019 and by December I was deeply tied up on other things… a small trickle of CubeSpawn related things have continued through until the present. But Now! I am jumping back in, and will start to move the project forward during Q1 of 2024 Now all that’s…

  • Week 34 2019

    Choppy week! The Hurco Mill is STILL down, looks like the Gecko motor driver has an intermittent fault… Ordered a new one. A little work on the Digital Models, Lots of work around the homestead this week on the Welding Shed. Progress!

    I really started digging in on the Whitepaper V2 this week, you can see the paper mid edit here: as a google doc. There was also much working on research and validation to get the whitepaper to even this incomplete state. I am following the “Farmbot” whitepaper layout, and well relentlessy edit until this conveys…

  • Speculating about mobile bases

    Started Drawing the Wire Routing parts for the Mill Module this week, and Setup one of the CubeSpawn 3D printers to produce the parts: Got 2 of the 4 parts printed (the second part was still printing as I left Friday)   The Blue Parts will be 3D printed Printing Parts for the mill (Right)…

    Lots of little details on the Mill Module this week, and I updated the CubeSpawn Mechanical Repository on Github with models for the basic parts of the system. https://github.com/CubeSpawnParts/625_CubeSpawn-2019      

  • Github Update Week 24 2019

    Added STL files to the Hardware Github: https://github.com/CubeSpawnParts/625_CubeSpawn-2019 Specifically I updated or added STLs and/or Sketchup models for the: Empty Cube Basic Frame (Chassis) Mechanical Module Electrical Tray Back Plane Mobile Platform (First Robot)  

  • Week 23 2019

    Digging in to the electrical integration for the standard Electrical Module and the new configuration needed for the milling machine: The onboard Smoothie controller can natively drive NEMA 17 stepper motors, But the mill will have NEMA 23 motors, so external drivers are required, so the challenge is to take the 3.3 volt control Logic…

  • Week 22 2019

    Worked on Mobile Unit part acquisition, Mobile Unit steering and suspension drawings and models, but mostly focused on electronics for the Mill Module…

  • More Detailed Project Description

    I decided to move this info over from the Google Doc onto the Website. Updated 06/26/2019 This Document will serve as a (fairly) quick introduction to the CubeSpawn Project. Section 1 introduces the technical parts of the system, and, Section 2 explains the motivations, benefits, and puts the machines into a self sufficiency context… Section…
