Title: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: Andrey67 on February 28, 2010, 03:29:13 AM
Such ShuttleRu I have made. Has 15 buttons, but 30 functions of management.

That looks pretty impressive.

Can you tell us more about it?

Does it have the electronics of a Shuttle Pro inside or is it all new?

It looks to have a modified Shuttle Pro plugin.

Very nice pendant you have made. Will you be offering these for sale or this just a project for yourself?

Thanks for sharing,
Dave

Producing the pendant is not my main job.
 But I do it to anyone and to sell.

That sounds very reasonable, I even may take you up on the LCD version  ;)

Thanks,
Dave
Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: Andrey67 on December 19, 2010, 02:38:08 PM
 OK!
 I need 4-5 days for the building of the pendant for you.
Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: budman68 on December 19, 2010, 02:40:26 PM
Thank you, I will let you know soon.

May I ask for more information such as what would be included exactly? Do I need anything special to run this or is it just USB with your plugin? Do you have any literature written up for it and what functions and options are included?

Thanks,
Dave

That's not reasonable - it's downright CHEAP!  I don't know of a single decent pendant you can buy for that kind of money, and this one seems to have a quality of build and functionality that is unmatched.  Very nice work!

can 5 axis be displayed on LCD screen?
Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: Andrey67 on December 20, 2010, 02:20:29 AM

It is possible. But this will require  changing  of the plugin and program of the chip.

I bought one and sent it back as there was too much "lag" in the shuttle dial control as compared to the original Shuttle Pro 2. Andrey said it could not be fixed and to get a refund I needed to send it back. I asked for a discount but he did not want to work that out and insisted I send it back.

Had to send it back on my dime which I was not thrilled about since it was described as working just like the original Shuttle Pro.

Live and learn....

Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant

Thanks for the input, guess I will keep looking.
Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: Andrey67 on April 29, 2011, 02:29:02 PM
Well, as usual the evil is in details. budman68 received the pendant with the LCD screen at the middle of January 2011 and insisted to buy it after a month of testing. During test period no issues were reported, but they appeared almost immediately right after payment has occurred. Weird coincidence... Speaking about technical details. The pendant with the LCD screen (much more advanced than the ShuttlePro) receives a lot of information via USB and in some cases it causes a small reaction delay on the outer ring rotation, but it doesn't make a real impact on the functionality. This doesn't look like a hardware flaw, but a plugin issue and we are working on this. Since budman68 was not satisfied, I fully refunded him even before I received a pendant back.
Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: budman68 on April 29, 2011, 02:55:06 PM
I will not get into an argument here, and this will be the last time I post on this subject as I know it's frowned upon to badmouth sellers/vendors on this forum.

I do have to say that I left no information out in my post and it is all true to the relevency to Astroguy's question. No details hidden as Andrey even confirmed that there is an issue with this pendant/plugin (not sure which yet, and it's been how long?).

Again, I must repeat: I was told this worked exactly like the Shuttle Pro 2 Pendant so I should feel confident in thinking it would. IT DID NOT.

If anyone would like any info, I would be happy to relay it to them via emails or PM's as I have nothing to hide and I will not be a part of a @#$%-storm here.

I could have come on here on my own and started a thread about this situation, but again, I know the higher ups don't like that being done.

I even helped Andrey sort out some flaws in his pendant and plugin and this is how I'm treated.

I  wish to see only technical discussion in this topic, though, unfortunately, it didn't happen. Since some incorrect statements were made just above, I must make some clarification. The ShuttleRU_LCD is a different device and doesn't work exactly as a ShuttlePro, though it uses an extended ShuttlePro plugin. I don't know where it came from about exact behavior. There was only one question/requirement from Dave during testing period - changing color of the A-axis. It was a software glitch, not a hardware, and was fixed. I was thankful to Dave for his help with description of his experience and it was really unexpected to see this kind of his reply here.
Title: Re: My ShuttleRu pendant
Post by: Andrey67 on May 15, 2011, 05:12:00 PM
The new plugin version #4 for the ShuttleRU_LCD has been released and the issue with the dial control "lag" has been resolved. For those of you who want to see pendant behavior with the old and new plugin - here is a short video clip:

Andrey67, I think you found your calling.

You say that's not your regular job, but I think you just created a full
time company for yourself.

It's the nicest pendant available for the price, heck for twice the price.

I think you should go for it full steam and sell these to every small
shop and DIY CNC'r in the world. Could make you pretty wealthy.

Good luck,

I'm saving my pennies and asking Santa for one too.

Thanks for that Andrey

Does that mean that the  ShuttleRU_LCD is no longer available?

Yes.
I am not going to create that version (ShuttleRU_LCD) of the pendant.

Now would be good a wireless pendant.
