Awaiting Approval

David Kitschker

The new controller is making PCB's beautifully (insert non existent image here). It's even done some milling tasks imported from fusion 360. Electrically everything is ready and I believe the motor parameters have been tuned for best performance.

Things left to do:

  1. Shorten some wires (and make things neater)
  2. Cut a hole in the back panel to mount a fan
  3. Mill out and cut a front panel for the connectors
  4. Increase the stepper drive current
  5. Wire the power module in
  6. Document things
  7. Start writing up some tutorial/skillshare for the PCB making process

However, I need a few small things to finish stuff up.

Where will you buy this thing? Where's the money going?

How exactly will what you buy fit into hackspace and who will install it?

  • A small proposal needs 5 member votes:
  • A medium proposal needs 10 member votes:
  • A large purchase proposal needs a majority vote at a quorate meeting (see large purchase props for more info). Proxy votes are included. As of 02/2020 there were 240 members. A meeting is quorate with 10 % of membership= 24 members. Majority vote= 13 people.
