Re: Carbide 3D blog on Grbl 1.1

There have been unofficial builds floating around calling themselves 1.0 for at least a year, and people use them. So to avoid problems in GUIs that use the version number to enable/disable features chamnit jumped right to v1.1.

Re: G02 Circles

There are weird rules and edge cases for arcs and splitting them up into sections avoids having to trust that the controller was implemented correctly. As for the pause marks, make sure your gcode sender is buffering multiple commands to grbl and you should have no problems. Most senders get that ri...

Re: Invalid gcode ID:26

I added a long overdue feature to UGS recently (in the nightly build). Grbl is a lot more strict about these sorts of errors than it used to be.

Re: G Code error 33

If you put GRBL into check mode (send $C prior to your file) you should be able to reproduce the error very quickly and see what line it is on. If you could tell us which command it is we should be able to help. From the GRBL documentation error 33 is: The motion command has an invalid target. G2, G...

Re: Gcode not executing corectly?

In addition to the feed speeds, you might try lowering your acceleration settings: https://github.com/grbl/grbl/wiki/Configuring-Grbl-v0.9#120-121-122--xyz-acceleration-mmsec2 Also, if UGS was letting you send the lines in your initial post it is a very old version. UGS truncates decimals and giving...

Re: Arduino Reset

From the UGS GUI your options are to use the "Reset Zero" button before every job, or to close/open the connection to GRBL. I usually go the close/open route. If you have limit switches things change a bit and you'll either want to go the "Reset Zero" route, or create a macro like RobCee suggested. ...

Re: Hybrid Project - Kids Kitchen Helper

Cool! For those of us who are lacking in the traditional carpentry skill department, you can use the "50 Digital Wood Joints" designs to CNC it all. http://www.flexiblestream.org/project/50-digital-wood-joints With a small bit the dog bones on the inside corners are not really noticeable and even a...

Re: G# macro-programming

This looks really cool! One feature that would be useful for sender integration is if you had a mode to attach some metadata (such as line number) to each generated line of gcode. This would allow a gcode editor to highlight a block of G# script then in a visualizer highlight which lines of generate...

Hybrid Project - Kids Kitchen Helper

My 1 year old has been very interested by what goes on in the kitchen lately. There are a lot of these "Kitchen Helpers" on the market, but they're either too expensive, too ugly, or don't fold. The design is based on this photo I found online. I've been pretty interested in how CNCs can be used to ...
