Re: UGS changing my F values

Looks under Settings -> Sender Settings and change the speed override percent value to what you want. FYI thanks for bringing that up as I hadn't noticed, just started using UGS with my new SO3, and now I know too! EDIT: That's IF Enable speed override is checked, which I just noticed is not on my s...

Re: Carbide Motion Problems

FYI I'm using G55 instead of G54 since G54 isn't persistent when there a limit error it appears. I know, from the other thread. Can you try to get a limit error using UGS rather than CM, and see if that causes G54 to reset too? Then you know whether to report it as a GRBL bug or a CM misfeature. Ed...

I tried it with Universal G-Code Sender and it works fine, so I'd tend to agree that CM isn't happy with my setup.

Re: Carbide Motion Problems

Do you have soft limits set? Post your settings? Oops sorry, yes I do. $20, $21 and $22 are set to one. If I turn off soft limits then the machine moves and I get a hard limit trip on the X-axis due to the G0X-341.200 I see in the log I'm assuming. I'll capture my settings this evening and post. Th...

Carbide Motion Problems

So after installing my limit switch kit over the weekend, and then getting homing working and setting a WCS origin (P2/G55) at -350,-350,-25 relative to the homing position at X+/Y+/Z+, I've been trying to just power on my new SO3, send $H and then load a project in Carbide Motion to send. Each time...

Re: WCS Not So Persistent?

Well to reply to my own post, I found out that my issues are specific to G54 only. I set all 6 WCS setups for G54 to G59 to the same point (x=-350, y=-350 and z=-10). Only G54 will get cleared, and hitting software limits is one thing that will clear it. (That's another post for the Software section...

WCS Not So Persistent?

I'm brand new to this forum and CNC routing, and just one week into working with my new Shapeoko 3, so I've still got a lot to learn... That said it seems like my G54 WCS settings are getting cleared after some as yet indeterminate amount of time. I just installed a limit switch kit on my system yes...

Re: Shapeoko 3 - Assembly Instructions (preliminary)

I just read through this thread and I don't think I missed this, but if so apologies... The GT2 pulley installation shown on page 18 for the stationary z-plate is, I believe, incorrect. I followed the instructions as shown with the thin/non-set-screw flange against the plate. But that does not align...
