Purchasing (SO1)

From ShapeOko
Jump to: navigation, search

These are the instructions for the SO1 and are here for historical reasons only.

If you are building an SO2, please see the instructions at http://docs.shapeoko.com/

Potential Vendors

While a number of components are specialty items, many are commodity parts which may be available at mainstream vendors. Some potential vendors include:

International / U.S. / Internet

Specialty vendors

Specialty hardware stores

Hardware stores

  • Ace Hardware --- check for a store local to you
  • True Value --- check for a store local to you
  • Home Depot --- the "ship-to-store" option is useful for parts not available locally and doesn't incur shipping charges
  • Lowes
  • Menards

Electronics suppliers

End mills


Specific bits:


Ebay sellers:


Strategizing on purchases so as to save on shipping and handling is a useful technique to help keep expenses in check.

If all else fails, many items are available on eBay, or Amazon.

Upgrades

There is a separate list of specific vendors on the Upgrade Overview page.

Specialty Local Vendors

Please list specialty local vendors which don't have a sales presence on the internet below by their geography.

Bill of Materials

Please note that this is for the original ShapeOko and has not yet been up-dated for the new SO2. When that is done, this page should be archived under SO1 build instructions. There is a B.O.M. for the SO2 in the blog announcement.

There is also a B.O.M. on the site kitbom.

Complete details for each component can be found at Parts.

Mechanical, Motion and Structural (including spindle)

Electronics

Please note that options for Electronics vary considerably depending on one's choices and needs. The parts shown below are those for a stock ShapeOko using an Arduino and GRBLshield. Please see Advanced Electronics for more information.

Additional / Commodity Items

There are a number of other items which one may need or will find useful:

  • Extra M3 and M5 washers --- these are pricey in low quantities, and are generally useful
  • Lock washers (Note especially their suggested use for “Tensioning the Machine” in Assembly troubleshooting) and other miscellaneous hardware, esp. for Belt Anchors
  • M5 socket cap screw assortment --- automotive stores usually have a plastic organizer filled w/ various sizes --- saves a lot of time and gas and cash if you do much upgrading
  • Zip ties or other fasteners
  • Electrical cable/wiring --- 18 or 20 gauge.[7] 4 (or more) conductor 18 gauge security cable is sold in bulk by the foot at most hardware stores, e.g., Home Depot's 18-4 CL3R Security Cbl Shld 1' @ 0.63, Part number 0000-249-865 Ed0345.18.10 <A>, listed in bulk on their site. Also available from All Electronics - Shielded 5 conductor 22 AWG with drain @ 0.33 per foot.
  • Cable Management system
  • End mills
  • Material for an electronic enclosure
  • Some way to cool the stepper drivers such as a fan and/or heat sinks
