Re: G-code coordinate systems explanation -especially for GR

Can someone explain how G28 works with GRBL and the shapeoko. I read the wiki here: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/G-Code#What_about_G28_and_G30.3F but I still don't understand. I though G28.1 by itself would set the stored position to the current position, but that didn't seem to be the cas...

Re: GRBL Auto Leveling?

Try putting a pull up resistor on A5. Something between 300 and 700 ohms

Re: GRBL Auto Leveling?

I saw the manual, but it didn't seem to help. For example, on the first tab in the board section, I select generate milling and set the depth. But then I go over to the machine tab where it shows the actual end mill and explains what the different parameters are. I just don't seem to understand wha...

Re: GRBL Auto Leveling?

I started using Chilipeppr and that works great. Thanks for the help. The g-code generation doesn't seem to be very good. It messed up a few of my traces and can't do arcs. Is there an overview on the ULP PCB-gcode generator for Eagle? I understand the machine tab, but the board section of the gene...

Re: GRBL Auto Leveling?

I've been meaning to see if I can autolevel with Chilipeppr: https://github.com/synthetos/TinyG/wiki/ChiliPeppr-PCB-Auto-Level The above link is a version of Chilipeppr that's works with the TinyG, here is a version that works with GRBL: http://chilipeppr.com/jarret I haven't followed Chilipeppr clo...

Re: Limit Switch Wiring?

Hello, I just assembled my shapeoko 2, and now i want to put the limit switches. My shapeoko is full kit with arduino uno and gshield v5b. I have read about the limit switches and tried the schematics in this thread on the first page, but it doesn't work. I have tested with one limit switch on the ...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

GrblGru show that it's using C:\ProgramData\GrblGru\5, but that directory doesn't exist.

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Thanks for your feedback. Please copy the files direct into the data folder (c:\ProgramData\grblgru). Then it should work. If you select the item Help-MyHelp GrblGru will show you the file C:\ProgramData\grblgru\MyHelp.pdf. You can use this file to get quick access to information you like. Simple c...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Hi, Scott216. It seems that the windows access rights are cause of all your (better my) problems. To be honest, I don't understand the rules. So I have to read up about this things. However, I hope you can use GrblGru now. The upload in this community is limited to 512 KB. So I can't upload some he...

Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Thanks for the files. I actually don't have any experience with probing. I've got a touch plate I use to set the Z zero, which works very well. But I haven't done anything that probes the whole surface of the PCB. I'd like to learn more about doing that, but haven't gotten around to it.
