Re: Problem with ramps and lead in Fusion.

The Z motor may make a terrible noise when ramping. I'm pretty sure that's normal. It happens when the move is too slow to be continuous, so what you hear is a lot of separate steps in quick succession. Reducing current will make it quieter, but you increase the risk of missing steps, so probably n...

Re: Problem with ramps and lead in Fusion.

I have a similar problem. I used F360 to create a pocket with 2d adaptive clearing. It creates a circular spiral down that works great, but once down at the level, the "smooth sweeping arcs" that the adaptive clearing are supposed to be sound like what you are saying, and it slows to less than a cr...

Re: Problem with ramps and lead in Fusion.

It's not a cutting problem at all. It's the same "air cutting". The vibrations and noises are from the motors. It's either just because ramps are so slow, or there is something funky going on with the ramp g code that grbl doesn't like. And yes ofc all my end mills are capable of center cutting ;) I...

Problem with ramps and lead in Fusion.

Probably not a fusion specific question. But are anyone else having problems with ramping and lead in? I mean it works, but my machine sounds awful. It stutters and vibrates and it sounds to me that the steppers are getting too little current to smoothly execute the slow ramp and lead in tool paths....

Re: Chilipeppr black screen

Never mind, I figured it out. It was most likely a webgl problem. I just switched to chromium (from firefox) and it worked. A bit odd since both should be able to do it, but maybe I had an old version.. Anyway, happy it's working now. Just wish the grbl workspace had the same visual handling of the ...

Re: Limit Switch Wiring?

So it's been ages since I asked about this. But life finally gave me a free weekend to try and sort this out. And thanks to Cat, I managed to get homing and limit switches working. Thanks! I only had one crash, when I goofed up the Z and Y pins :mrgreen: I'm a little unsure about my wiring still, bu...

Chilipeppr black screen

I'm trying to move to chilipeppr, but I am having some issues. The viewer is just a black screen. But all the controls / widgets(?) are there. I am running the latest ubuntu lts and using the grbl workspace. Some time a go I was able to connect to the arduino and jog the machine, but now I can't eve...

Re: Flatten warped wood with a clothes iron

Haha, neat! I've also seen a Russian youtube woodworker flatten a board by wetting one side with water and then just left it on a flat surface for a day or two. I could not find that video now, but here are some similar ideas: http://www.cuttingboard.com/blog/how-to ... ing-board/

Cool Disney research. Auto connect objects

A refined version of this coupled with that audodesk software that enables you to make 3D meshes from photos sounds like a very exciting and simple way to make usefull stuff for all of us with crappy modeling skills xD
