Not sure what category to post this in. Is there a way to have multiple categories?
I guess this is a build diary of sorts, it's also an alternate hardware frame prototype and on-the-fly and subject to change. This is sort of an offshoot to my original thread titled "Alternative Hardware" or something like that.
Anyway, here is the current progress on my custom T-slot cube that i hope to turn into an indoor grow box at minimum and a fully functional PFC potentially in time. Who knows, perhaps some ideas and/or innovation may happen in this thread or with this design that could improve or change future PFC designs. PFC Version 2 hardware just came out and it looks like its a big improvement over 1.0. My choice of trying to build an alternate frame out of commercially available T-slot instead is based on two factors. 1. I really like t-slot and i think if it's used well it can really simplify things. 2. I already had most of the t-slot around from a previous unfinished project which was to be a large custom 3d printer.
Here are a few photos. More photos to come as i continue to work through this design. I've gone through a few different ideas on 3d printed connectors for this, many of which i am currently using. Pardon the messy floor, i've been meaning to clean organize that for awhile, along with a few other areas too.
So what do you guys (or gals) think? Too simple? Too ugly? Just right? Is this a design or material you are interested in? Should i keep working on this? Other thoughts? Ideas to make it better?
Well that's all i can think of to say for now. I wish it was more along, but hopefully we will get there soon. I also wish i had better pictures, but that's all i've got right now.
