gt; Couldn't you have made it with one kind of piece instead of two kinds?
Yes, but I wanted a symmetric lid on the box. Maybe that's a silly preference, but that's what I did.
Couldn't you have made it with one kind of piece instead of two kinds? Put the nubs adjacent to each other (not opposite each other), then assemble the sides with the nubs up, up, down, down. It'll be obvious how the top and bottom fit on.
gt; How's the build?
Pretty easy. We have a good wiki with step-by-step instructions.
gt; Whats the softwware tool chain you are using?
Different people use different chains. I like using free/open-source when possible. I've been using Google SketchUp with the PhlatScript plugin to generate g-code. I send the g-code from the PC to the Arduino using "G-code sender". On the Arduino, I think everyone is using GRBL.
The wiki is starting to collect all the software options...
...and there is a lot of discussion on the ShapeOko forum...
The ShapeOko technology is great, and the community is even better. If you're looking f
or a fun way into CNC, I definitely recommend ShapeOko.
