Re: Getting Help (please read first)

Please start a new topic. This thread is just a guide to go look at the existing help.
I would also suggest that you include me information about your setup. You really haven't given us anything to work with.

Re: Photos in Wiki may contain GPS coordinates

Adam Savage did that once on Twitter... He turned off geotagging pretty quickly after that.

This is a forum dedicated to an open source CNC machine. You probably won't get much help here. Thread closed.

Re: How to mount DW660?

Try a shallower cut. Drifting is the result of missed steps, which typically happen when the spindle can't keep up with the demands of the job. As the spindle speed goes down, the stepper torque needed goes up. For example, with an 1/8" end mill cutting Baltic birch plywood at a 0.7mm depth per pass...

Re: CamBam on Raspberry PI?

I expect the Pi would be very frustrating to use with CamBam. I run it on a meaty Core i7 machine, and I find performance overall pretty good. Describing the Pi as a P2-300 equivalent is pretty reasonable. It would work, but it would be slow.

Re: Major path deviation during cut

I've had similar success with a fan. I have heatsinks on top of my driver chips, which did very little to help until I added the fan.

One of my biggest improvements was cutting shallower passes. 0.5mm through Baltic birch plywood at a feed rate of 800 mm/sec is working well for me.

Re: GRBL Freezes while sending a file

Great thread! I've made it sticky. I've had issues like this, and in my case, USB cable routing helped a fair bit, but I'm not at 100% yet.

Re: Such satisfaction...

I'm cutting 1/8" baltic birch plywood. It feathers a bit around the edges, but with minor sanding, it really produces nice parts.
