Re: Fonts

That's great that you puzzled things out! Other considerations: - should be opentype/truetype (cross-platform) - quantity matters --- QT seems to have a lower threshold than Windows/Mac OS X, so uninstall any not needed - fonts must be technically correct text fonts (have a space character, &c.)

Re: Custom 1/8" Collet for Makita RT0701C Trim Router

The Robotshop collets are the same as the ones from Carbide 3D --- I have a set (Carbide 3D employee) and they're wonderfully well-made, w/ a crisper finish and slightly better centering of the cuts than the Elaire Corp. collets (I have a full set of them as well, but to be fair my 1/8" was from the...

Re: Z Axis retraction

The new version of Carbide Create has a post processor option.

Whether or no it retracts should be a function of the height set for safety/retract --- post the .c2d file and generated G-Code to support@carbide3d.com and we'll do our best to work through this with you.

Re: Waste board tolerances

Start by stiffening up the machine itself --- the easiest way to do this is to set the machine on a sheet of insulation foam --- alternately, work up some way to level it sitting on a torsion box (and then use the threaded holes for the leveling feet to secure it to the torsion box. Then add a spoil...

Re: CCPro

I'm afraid that the process of getting a license requires certain steps be performed in a certain order: - go to https://launch.carbide3d.com/ and create an account --- note that you'll need to use an e-mail provider which actually delivers our automated account and password e-mails --- some don't, ...

Re: Double purchase

We don't sell the machine with the HDZ because it is better for folks to learn to use the machine before installing a Z-axis which can cut the front endplate in half. If you don't want spare parts, you could either sell the belt-drive Z-axis (there is a market for this, folks with the old flat plate...

Re: Updating CarbideMotion 2.2 (SP3), from Grbl .9 to 1.1

I believe this older board requires that you hold "Prog" instead.

If you haven't yet, contact support@carbide3d.com and we'll do our best to work this out.

Re: Painting inside v carved letters

The easiest way to do this is to finish the wood before cutting with a durable finish which will repel the paint, then paint, then wipe the paint off the finish at the top, then finish again.
