Introduction:

The redFly system is similar to the redLeaf and redSprout except that is does not include a computer. This is a solution for you if you already have a computer ready for your machine, but would like the electronics done for you. Great for retrofitting your mill.

Description:

The redFly comes with electronics and fully wired, tested, and assembled. We will provide male connectors for the motor wire. Make sure to get appropriate motor cable length for your set up. The redFly comes standard with our Mach3 USB controller with a dual relay .

Motor cable will need to be purchased additionally. Click Here For Motor Cable.

Actual motor tuning based on your machine will vary. In some instances you will have to calculate the steps per inch yourself or use the Mach3 automated steps per unit calculation process if we do not have the relevant information.

The basic system (first purchase option) has three standard motors (425 oz-in torque) and drivers (3.0 amp per phase) which is perfect for small to medium CNC router or CNC machine, or general duty machines). The second option for Heavy Gantry includes two standard motors and drivers like the first option, but has a heavy duty motor (651 oz-in) and driver (5.6 amp) to move the gantry which is perfect for medium to larger CNC routers or machines with a heavy gantry at or about 100 to 200 lbs. The third option is for heavy duty machines that require large motors (651 oz-in) and drivers (6.0 amp) on each axis which is great for machines with heavy Z-Axis assemblies.

With this package you receive:

• Motor Drivers 40 Volts 3.0 Amps or 6.0 Amps Max (capable of 1/64 microstepping) depending on the option chosen• 425 oz-in or 651 oz-in bipolar motors depending on the option chosen• Mach3 USB Controller• 36 Volt 10 Amp Power Supply• Panel Motor Cable Connectors• Fan (Near the Middle)• Wood, Plastic and Fasteners in a Clean and Aesthetic Arrangement to Encase the System

Under the case, the drivers have a special cut-out to allow for the flow of air to transfer the heat out of the enclosure. To provide this air flow, there is a large fan in centrally located. With a fan directing air into the enclosure, there is always positive pressure within this enclosed space. Openings were carefully positioned to exit the heat in the most appropriate way. Moreover, the positive pressure will limit the amount of dust that enters into the enclosure.

The New Pokeys CNC Control System

The new Pokeys CNC Control System includes three 6.0 amp drivers, the full featured Pokeys57CNC two 48V power supplies, 4 limit switches, two NEMA 34 651 oz-in stepper motors, one NEMA 24 425 oz-in stepper motor an emergency stop button,, and a fan to keep everything inside cool.

At this point, you should have the control software that is described in Software Part 1 and Software Part 2. Software part 1 shows the process to install Mach3 and Software Part 2 shows the process to install a Linux control software application called EMC2. If you're still unsure what I'm talking about, then here is my detailed explanation of the entire workflow. Later posts will go into greater detail and tutorial on each program.
The CNC Process: From CAD to Product
I have put together a video tutorial of the entire process from drawing a part in CAD (Computer Assisted/Aided Design) to the final product that is cut out from the CNC machine. This three part series will step you through the design of a very simple object that uses drills and profiles. Drills are simply holes created from the end mill (router bit) into the material and profiles are horizontal cuts, usually in geometric form, that create various shapes.
