Started talking about this here - forum.linuxcnc.org/38-general-linuxcnc-q...trol-system-retrofit

Today I got done modeling the new encoder housings in FreeCAD, good enough. The STL export is good. It's o the 3D printer & so far so good.

The computer, RAM, & the Geckos are here. The Mesa 7i95 should be here tomorrow. So time to get the LinuxCNC party started.

Here's an image from the CAD. If anyone want's the file let me know and I can .zip it & upload.

The housings & lids are done. A little Bondo & paint & they'll be done.

There was about 0.015 +/- shrinkage somwhere so the lids aren't perfectly flush. Noted for next time. Can probably compensate in the slicer software. I put the .STL files up with this reply. If anyone wants the FreeCAD files let me know. Might take me a couple days to get back to you. If I get time to figure out a .DXF export for FreeCAD I can try that too.
