Hello,

Just thought I would say hello as I have been reading the build logs for some time now and am attempting a sieg x2 conversion. Having previously built myself a reprap it is time to build something bigger and noisier. I look forward to getting started soon.

Ian.

welcome to the forum Ian. Sure you will have seen the posts about Sieg x2 conversions on the forum. With a bit of luck they will help give you a head start. All the best with it anyway.

Thanks Martin. The posts are very useful. I am hoping to achieve something similar to what Russell did in his build log.

Hi Ian,

I guess having a RepRap you are already familiar with the software to drive it. Are you intending to use LinuxCNC?

Good luck and have fun.

Russell.

Hi Russell,

Certainly having a reprap gives me a good start although they do work a bit differently so I will be learning new software. I do intend to try using LinuxCNC.

Thanks,
Ian.
