Re: Spindle wont go up anymore at beginning of job

Zero the Z and jog it up a few mm before running the job,it still knows where zero is. Unless you define a retract height and code for it,it will just run from where you left it.

Re: PlexiGlass is not for beginners :)

The work machine runs a single flute tool @ 22k with a feed of 3000mm/min,I extrapolated my settings from that.

Single flute is the key,along with cast material.

Re: Idlers carrying the Z...

So.... I found the culprit without the use of new wheels,turns out it was a bad fastener. I have spent the morning replacing all the M6 bolts with hardened socket cap versions instead,its cured the problem although im considering a precision bush for the v wheel mounting holes as there is,to my mind...

Idlers carrying the Z...

I have ended up in a situation where the idlers are carrying the Z instead of the V wheels.... I am on the limit for the gantry weight so Im wondering if the V wheels have just worn out after 30 hrs of runtime? The wheels are intact with no splitting and it seems that it only one wheel that isnt mak...

I think you pretty much nailed that.
Once I have replaced the Z axis plate with something stronger then i will be pushing the speeds up a little more than what it is now.

Re: Not really a log,more a couple of pron pics....

Speed was 250mm/min with a .15mm stepdown,3mm Endmill @11000 RPM. Surface finish quality is very high on my list. Total machine time was 2:47mins.

Re: S3 stops mid-job

Curious for those who are still getting disconnects with the cap, are you running a laptop or PC, and if a laptop do you still get the disconnects with the laptop running from battery? I am getting disconnects with the capacitor, running a PC, while turning off the router. Try switching the router ...

Re: S3 stops mid-job

Just to add to this,my rig is a proper workstation machine,not a laptop. So YMMV.....perhaps that is a caveat of the success I have had.

Just running the laptop on battery should help,it will certainly confirm/deny if its a causation factor.
