the bottom feed/chains along the top beam won’t work very well with a shorter
top beam (you just run out of space for the chain, as you have found)
you could do the top feed and just let the extra chain hang down.
you could trim the chain fromthe stock 11’ to the ~8’ you need, but that still
won’t fit across the top beam.
it would probably help to go with an 8’ beam instead of a 6’ beam, but the
resulting ~8.5’ of chain would still not quite fit across the top.
you could put a thin lyer of wood or plastic to keep the two chains from hitting
each other as they cross across the top if you still wanted to have them go
along the top beam
On a frame this small, isn’t a cut pattern needed to do a full calibration which requires the full 4x8 sheet?
The calibration scales itself to the defined machine size, so it should ‘just
Very nice! I’m guessing the size of your machine is asked for at some point in the calibration?
It’s not asked for, but it’s available to be changed under the advanced settings
options (there aren’t enough people making machines that aren’t 4’x8’ for it to
be worth asking everyone about this)
Fair enough. Sounds like this should be set first then start the calibration if your size is not default?
Exactly (and then a few more characters to hit the 20 minimum)
Thank you so much for the tip (dlang). I am sure I will figure something out. I appreciate the help and problem solving.
Any updates? Looking to reduce my frame size as well.
