Re: Shapeoko 3 Limit Switch Kits

Looking at the pictures, the switches are connected in parallel which makes me think that they are NO, right?
Are you planning on selling the kit with NC switches? I think I want to go with the NC route.

Re: Official SO3 Hello World

You can edit the G-code in the hello world file to change the F parameters to slow things down. You might be able to change the max. machine speed by editing an option in Grbl — maybe slow acceleration to the point the machine can’t get up to speed? Easiest just to add some more rubber bands until ...

Re: Problem during a 2.5D job

I think is the line where you get the first error. When GRBL runs into a command that it is not known/supported, the whole line is ignored so in your case, the G21 G90 and G40 are ignored meaning that mm mode and your absolute coordinates are not being applied. If you have your machine set up in inc...

Re: Attaching and Powering an RPi Directly on the Shapeoko 3

Hi mankyd, I'll be pursuing the same approach as you using a RPi with wifi dongle attached, I think this is the way to go. From the converter/regulator you posted, where do you plan to get the juice from? Since the upper left connectionof the board is not an option could it be possible to attach the...

Re: Touch plate and alternatives

Jarretl posted a macro here when I was wondering about ATC (thanks Jarretl!) and think this is the best approach I could get with the S3. Since then, I started using chillipeppr and its great http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5873 I intend to install a spring-loaded touch plate at a fixe...

Re: Semiautomatic tool change, dynamic Tool Offset & Variabl

Thanks for the response chamnit, I guess your right, The GUIs should inject those explicit commands to grbl along with variables management.
Well, ill just have to wait for someone to implement it since I do not know how to program GUIs ):
Ill start digging on that though.

Heres the NX9 post i made for everyone to use if you like. Disclaimer: Use it under your own risk, I can not be held responsible for any problem/malfunction of your machine so use caution and verify your code. On GRBL, set $C so you can quickly see if there is an error on the gcode before moving the...

Youl could upload the post processor to a post here in the Forums, or get an account on the wiki by sending a private message to wikiadmins (I think you need to include your e-mail address).
