Re: S3 stops mid-job

Hello together, like so many of you I've also had these interruptions. To stop this I supplied the spindle from another power strip, inserted a lot of ferrites (in the se3 power supply, the spindle AC, the USB cable) and disconneted the laptop from AC. Anything helps a little bit but there were rema...

Re: Nyloc fasteners

I used nyloc fastener nuts from the beginning of the assambly. But I think it's better to use at least 2 normal nuts per motor until you have tensioned the belts. It's easier to tighten normal nuts during this process. After the belts are tensioned you can change the normal nuts to nyloc ones nut pe...

Searching for "mm"

I often search for information about sizes of something (e.g. distance of holes in z-Plate, distance of pre-drilled holes for limit switches, ..) where I know that I have once seen it in the forum. Therefore I try to use "mm" as one of the search-pattern. But it looks like "mm" is too short to be us...

Re: Distances of holes on Z Axis Carriage Plate

Hello Michael,

THX for this information. I have found a pre-milled spindle holder w/ 80*80 mm square w/o holes to mount it. I hope this will be flexible enough.

Distances of holes on Z Axis Carriage Plate

To prepare this while waiting for my SO3 I should know the distances of the holes for the spindle mount on the Z Axis Carriage Plate in vertical and horicontal direction. These are...

Re: Connect standard arduino Uno to Carbide Motion

>It’s my understanding that the Carbide Motion version of Grbl has some compile options turned on to support the features of the >Nomad (and Shapeoko 3?) and so can’t run on boards which lack those features. I see, but therefore I took the precompiled grbl.hex file from the Carbide homepage which IM...

Connect standard arduino Uno to Carbide Motion

In the time till my SO3 will arrive I want to play a little bit with the Carbide Motion SW, so that I as Newby can start fast after delivery. Therefore I took an Arduino Uno and stored the carbide .hex file on it. With a serial monitor I can see that the SW runs (It sends "CarbideMotion 0.9g"). I al...
