Re: GRBL 1.1 : UGS Platform (Error Issues)

Issue resolved. The process of flashing the new firmware GRBL 1.1 to the Shapeoko controller board resets the G28 location (in my situation at least) to the machine home (X0;Y0:Z0) position.

I loaded GRBL 1.1 onto the new board and moved to UGS Platform. All of these changes are in preparation for the Shapeoko Touch Probe when they are ...

Re: Z-Axis Plate Upgrade Sold out!

@kayaker, I just happened to see it announced in the forum and followed the link to order. Just a word of warning since I'm also in Ottawa. Although the C3D price for the new Z-plate is very reasonable the shipping to Canada, the special FedEx handling fees and the exchange rate make the final bill...

Shapeoko 3 Controller - e-stop connectors

I want to put an e-stop switch on my Shapeoko 3. What is the name of the type of connector for the pins on the board and what size are they as they are smaller than the stepper motor connectors.

Thanks in advance.

Re: What do you wish you knew about when starting?

Hello, I am new to the forum but I was curious; What do you wish you knew about when you first started using a CNC? I was completely new to the whole CNC router thing before I jumped into the queue for my SO3 landed which ultimately landed at the door early last summer. To be honest, from the day I...
