XXL and XL MDF dimensions

Hey guys!

Question, as the title says, can anyone give me the dimensions of the MDF bed for the XL and XXL kits? I am planning on upgrading my Shapeoko 3 to XXL and I found a local shop here that sells aluminum threaded sheets. Can anyone help me with this? Pretty please?

The behaviour can be changed by editing the config files and recompiling Grbl.

Re: Carbide Create Question

Thanks for the answer! I was starting to drive myself nuts over the weekend trying to figure out if there was such an option within the CC software. Looks like I will be watching tutorials of MakerCam this coming weekend. :lol:

Carbide Create Question

Hey guys!
Got another question. Is there an option for Carbide Create to do a "Drill" operation? Instead of doing a circle, it will just plunge in little by little to drill a hole on the material?

Re: Shapeoko 3 startup noise

Okay, I just confirmed, the noise is coming from the stepper motors. Anyone else has this kind of noise on their machine? Do I need to be concerned about this?

Re: Shapeoko 3 startup noise

k. So the plan is to test them one at a time, and see if one of them is significantly louder than the others? Actually, the plan was to just unplug everything from the board except for the power to see if the noise is actually coming from the board. I don't know if that's advisable to do but that's...
