Wondering if anybody has received anything from Fablicator/Additive Aerospace? I decided to give the limit/probe kit a go to see what better features I could utilize as well as a printed electronics enclosure. I've even directly emailed the seller and haven't heard a peep back. Does anybody know ho...
To update: I got the new PCB in the mail on Friday and got it installed ASAP. Sadly it didn't solve my issue at all. (I got a disconnect almost every time I turned off the router) I finally gave in and figured out how to run a new line from the breaker to my worktable. With the electronics on one an...
I noticed in my last batch of tests, REALLY heavy cutting in aluminum (.05" stepover, .1875" DOC, 60mm/s) would cause disconnects withing a matter of a minute or two, while light cuts of .083" DOC would run for an hr without issue until I turn off the router.

... so I have been running my SO3 for a couple months now with no issues with the Additive Aerospace Limit Switch kit. I am now encountering some false limit switch triggering. Here's where I'm stuck: - Power up SO3 - Start UGS, Soft Reset, $H - Set Zeroes for all axes, turn on Router - Run Job - S...

The Z axis flexes at least .025" with 10lbs of load at the tool tip.sgth0mas wrote: At 10lbs load your belt has over .025" of stretch available. What other component in your machine deflects that much?
If someone else could give this a try, I'd appreciate it. I'm on the Stepoko controller having the same disconnect issue as the Carbide controller. I'm able to reproduce the controller lockup 100% of the time by cycling the Dewalt DW611 router on and off multiple times at max speed. Doesn't matter ...

How deep are your holes? How many holes? How many units a day do you drill? You won't want to just plunge a drill with a router, but to use helical interpolation and an end mill smaller than your hole. Tolerance will still be around +-.005" Expanding the Shapeoko 3 is currently problematic, but you ...

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but can someone with experience with bCNC describe their workflow a bit. I think bCNC has more features than UGS, but I've had zero success with bCNC. It's always giving me error code 23 on gcode that works fine on other gcode senders. bCNC stops on any error thrown...
Hi All... Happy New Year, I've read numerous threads that talk about limit switches, wiring, settings... and so on. How about this basic question... How are limit switches suppose to function? And... once I know what a properly functioning limit switch is suppose to do, what is the best way to test...
