Re: So... is this forum going to be shut down?

If it really was an issue, I would adopt the community, forum, wiki, etc, under the domain I have bought for the CNC company I will be launching before too long.

Re: Hard limits trigger when spindle turns on

Perhaps try to put them on two different circuits in your home. I don't think this is going to fix it, but it's easy to do so at least worth a shot.

Re: Fair price...donating my Shapeoko2 to the local Makerspa

I doubt your Makerspace is a 501c3 organization. If it is not, there is a good chance the donation is not legitamately deductible anyway.

Check other sources. I am an accountant, but I work very far afield from federal taxation.

Re: Transposing and rotating G Code

I am up. It was a path variable issue. I had to add a java directory in my environment variables and add a reference to Java in the Path variable. I don't know why other Java apps ran if there was a problem. This link showed me exactly what to change: http://www.mkyong.com/java/how-to-set-java_home-...

Re: Transposing and rotating G Code

Yes I did. I do have a feeling now that I might have an old 32bit java version still on my system that is trying to run. I will dl 32 bit goko to see if that helps.

Thanks again.

Re: Transposing and rotating G Code

Thanks for following up. I havent had tine to do any in depth investigating, but I am running x86 version of JRE 8.92. In fact, I recently upgraded to it.

The error persists. For what it is worth, I am able to run other java applications such as UGS.

Thanks again for checking in.

Re: Transposing and rotating G Code

Thanks for the tip on Goko. I downloaded the 64 bit version for my 64 bit Windows 10. At first I got an error 13 and fixed that by deleting a pointer variable per a tip on stack exchange. Now I get a message that a JRE or JDK must be available to run Goko. For what it's worth, other Java apps still ...
