Re: Carbide Motion quits unexpectedly

Just an update. I've been routing some more with the usb isolator, and have not had any disconnect issues so far. Not totally sure if it's 100% positive yet - but time will tell.

Re: Router Stalls after 3min

I bought an usb isolator and my problems with carbide motion loosing connection seems to be fixed. Not sure if it's the same issue you have though.

Re: My Shapeoko 3 build, enclosure and dust shoe project

Stuart, that sounds like a great idea :). I would carry that one thru, but finally found the brush I need from buildyourcnc.com. Price with shipping was ok.

Have done some major upgrades lately with the enclosure, tidying up all cables, attaching the vacum hose, etc. Pictures will come.

Re: Carbide Motion quits unexpectedly

Sounds a lot like my own issues. Sometimes CM crash if the router is started, but the main problem is CM crashing randomly during an operation. I've figured this problem to be related to static noise interfering with the USB cable, so looking forward to be trying the USB isolator I just received. Re...

Re: My Shapeoko 3 build, enclosure and dust shoe project

Kurt; thanks. It's built from scratch out of hollow alu. profiles. So every bit is attached inside with home made brackets. Since temporarily having the machine in my bedroom for "for a limited test period", it's very nice to have an enclosure. The tablet is a cheap Lenovo 10" windows 10 hybrid. Ver...

Re: My Shapeoko 3 build, enclosure and dust shoe project

Some more images with the dust shoe project. I removed the hose from an old vacuum cleaner, so that the hose will fit snuggly and can be removed if needed.

My Shapeoko 3 build, enclosure and dust shoe project

Hi everyone!

Thought it would be nice posting some images of my project. Everything is getting kinda ready now, just finishing doing the dust shoe. If anyone have some tips to where I can find brushes for the shoe, that would be awesome :).

Re: Carbide Motion quits unexpectedly

I just purchased the USB2ISO isolator, and is hoping for that to work. Today I have not had a problem, but then again I've been using Carbide Create instead of Makercam. Will update on how this works out :).

Re: Carbide Motion quits unexpectedly

Thanks for tip about multiple lines. I will try to use carbide create for the same file. Weird thing though is that running the jobs in the air without the router - everything works great. After reading the 12 pages in the disconnect post, I'm worried that I have the same problem. Only that my machi...

Carbide Motion quits unexpectedly

Hi everyone! Totally new to CNC, but learning a lot. Got my SO3 up running, and everything works great except that Carbide Motion suddently quits with the message saying "Carbode Motion Quit Unexpectedly". There is no consistency in when the program quits, and it happens on both Mac and Windows envi...
