Re: Shapeoko default setting in GRBL

Thanks for your input! The default setting should be a good start and if you bring a new machine up a lower value is probably better. My Z has a good wobble and I can do 25 OK but I think if I would try to use 50 I had to turn down my seek rate or crank up the Amperes on my grblShild.

Re: I hate UNO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you hate UNO you may like Mau Mau? At least you can play it with a regular deck.

Regarding the other UNO, what OS do you use with GCODE SENDER? And what version of GCODE SENDER do you have?

Re: ShapeOko #200 from inventables batch

Today I was finally able to add homing switches to the machine and test the latest GRBL firmware and get familial with the G54 command. If you don't know this yet it's very useful feature to change the zero position of your machine after the homing cycle. I used this document http://wiki.linuxcnc.or...

Re: Cross Platform Graphical Gcode Sender

Hi Will,

https://github.com/grbl/grbl/wiki/Configuring-Grbl-v0.8

Looks like the V0.8d is adding a whole lot of new features! The homing is now done with $H. And I think it would be nice to display the work and machine position using the ?

Re: heekscnc on ubuntu

Heekscnc is looking for some include files from heekscad. You need to have the heekscnc directory inside the heekscad directory...

You can use 'apt-file find' to search which package has the missing so file! You should be able to find the right package and use 'apt-get install'.

Re: heekscnc on ubuntu

Heekscnc is just a plugin for heekscad; if you can start heekscad you just need to point to the heekscnc.so file in the bin folder of the heekscnc directory. If you don't have the so file yet just do 'cmake .' and 'make' to compile it. Linux Mint 13 and Ubuntu 12.04 should be very close because Mint...

Re: heekscnc on ubuntu

Go to file->plugins and point to heekscnc library and restart the program. I'm not sure, but you many be able to copy the icons in the bin folder. Or you could try...
