Re: G28 and M30 (program end) issues on Shapeoko 3

Re: New/old forum member

Forum Upgrades Coming

In the next few days the forum will be upgraded to the latest version and moved to a new server.

This will cause everybody to get logged out and the forum will look a little different.

There will also be a short outage at the time of the upgrade.

Thanks for your patience.

Re: What other hobbies do you have?

Too many hobbies - that's what I have... Woodworking - I use my S3 for this, but also have a basement full of woodworking machines. Table saw, joiner, planer, band saw, drill press... Model Railroading - just starting this one back up. I model in HO scale. There will probably be some S3 work at some...
