Re: Grasping WCS

Hey all,

Good information here. Where do G28 or G30 setups fit in? can they be used for manual tool change positioning?

Thanks,

V-Carve & Tool Changing

Hey all, I've been playing around with V-Carve and using a Mach3 ATC post processor to see if I can facilitate manual tool changes. It seems to work ok with Chilipeppr which happily pauses on a M6 command, let's you retract, jog, mdi etc, to change your tool and re-zero Z... has anyone else played a...

PreciseBits Spanner Wrench - Artwork

Hey all, I made a bit holder I found on the Inventables and it had a cutout for the standard Dewalt nut wrench, so I made a cutout to fit the PreciseBits one. Not beautiful, but it fits the wrench pretty good. Credit to Mike Bryan who made the original tray... IMG_2903.jpg I've included a jpg of the...

Re: New XL build & Coordinate Systems Question

Thanx Will, Yes, good article, a lot of possibilities! In any case, I'm not planning to use Carbide Motion for much of anything until it matures a bit. I cut real wood last night with a Fusion 360 file, Shapeoko PP and UGS and it came out very, very good, just need to tweak, adjust and square, but t...

New XL build & Coordinate Systems Question

Hey all, Got my S3 XL this morning and it's assembled and running fine, just been tweaking it. Couple of quirky little things in the build, one of the v-wheels had a tooling mark in it so tic-tic-tic, and I'm not overly impressed with the cable chain securing system (using sticky tape), plus the lac...
