Re: Actual cutting area of the 16 inch shapeoko

After zeroing, my travel limits are 412mm x 412mm, or about 16.2 inches.

Squaring Z-Axis

I’m in the midst of milling and assembling a Clayton Boyer clock. As I was spinning one of the larger gears on its shaft, I noticed a definite wobble when viewed from the side. A quick check with a drafting triangle showed that the z-axis was not perpendicular with the x-y plane by about 1 degree. I...

Shapeoko Back Storage

As I was assembling my Shapoko3, I noticed a rather large volume of un-used space at the back end of the baseboard when the framework is at Home position. I wanted some experience with the S3 before attempting to actually build the elaborate tab & slot building I have designed. I came up with two si...

Bresenham's Algorithm & GRBL

I've been trying to understand how the CAD and CAM software work. While learning how an SVG line is rendered onto a computer screen, I learned about Bresenham's Line Algorithm. I was really stumped when Bresenham is mentioned numerous times in the comments of GRBL's Stepper.c file. I tried to find i...

Re: SVG Elliptical Arcs

Looks like we need to start a list of MakerCAM issues! I think your second issue will be easier to track down than the pocketing problem. At least I can easily reproduce the pocketing error. That’s a start: pocketissueSS1.png Now a short update on SVG Arcs: I found another method for generating the ...

Re: SVG Elliptical Arcs

I would enjoy helping with your pocketing issue. I won't be able to do much until June, as I am heading from Chicago to North Carolina in a few days to visit my daughter. Just so you know, I'm very new to this and need to do research to get up to speed. I'm curious how toolpaths are generated, but I...
