false I have no idea where this "false" is coming from.... I never typed that.... let alone with no context....
One of the things I learned about Evap Cooling is it's very high maintenance. It's not worth the hassle no matter what way you try it.The waterblock in question is one of EKWB's that I had gotten as part of my sponsorship for Arctic Rain. That waterblock has G1/4 threads pre-tapped like that into the face of the plastic from the factory with a geometrically consistent spacing of the fasteners that bind the plastic to the copper block. In other words, I took the right angle...
Getting back into the desktop computers... Follow my work here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1609874/project-industrious-heavy-rain-mk2
Hey all, it's been a minute. Building up a new case, a lot of the details are still being worked out, therefore I'm taking my time on this build and not revealing my case of choice until later on. I'm modelling the case in software as I usually do, but unfortunately my laptops' aren't the best at CAD, so I'm getting the actual computer hardware operational again for CAD use then getting to work. MY application for this build is primarily for use as a multi-core data...
It's bak in my bedroom due to extreme cold temperatures:
So for the most part, I have the machine done. I've been using it a lot to make parts, and recently I moved all my hardware from my Arctic Rain build into an original Alienware Case, and I needed a new reservoir. I came up with this waterfall concept, and the result should be pretty cool: An earlier version being machined (skip to 1:30 for the close up): And now it exists:
It has certainly been fun, but at a little over 8000 lines of code for the post processor, I spend most of my time making sure it isn't going to slam the router into the vise etc. And that can get extremely boring/+frustrating at times. I think I'm getting to a point though where it's pretty reliable. I'm on my fourth revision of the software and the trajectory generator now has the ability to plan about 25 points ahead of its current position. This is giving me really...
Well the reason I was using a straight plunge vs a helical plunge is that MeshCAM doesn't support it. I have been using mastercam but I recently re wrote the post processor and I'm still making it compatible with mastercam's g-code. Otherwise I usually do use helical plunge.
Was able to get a lot of work done this weekend: Got the valve bank set up for automated control of the pneumatic control system: I also decided to make my own coolant system. It uses a venturi vacuum generator usually used for picking up light parts with a suction cup. The vacuum port is connected to a coolant reservoir (currently a water bottle lol) and gets sent to the nozzle inside the dust shroud: I realized I didn't have any pictures of the back of the...
It's that stuff used on the bottom of garage doors/front lip of your car lol. I have some of the brush on order, I just wanted something temporary.I decided I needed better lighting inside the dust shroud. I had some white LED stripping left over from the Arctic Rain build so I hooked up two equal length strips in series (Industrial tech for the most part all uses 24V):Lights On!I forgot to mention a key point with the router sub-assembly. I guess spending so much time...
