Shapeoko Control Box


Description

We bought a Shapeoko 2 for the Cambridge Hackspace. Whilst a great kit, there is no provision for protecting the electronics. Further, the motor controllers can get hot on prolonged jobs. so this was my solution.

The box was cut with a laser cutter using 3mm ply. There are a number of cutouts to allow access for USB, power, and motor cabling. On top there is a cutout for attaching a fan, used to cool the motor drivers
