Re: Shapeoko3 #1331 - Europe, The Netherlands

*setup for cutting Now it was time to move the machine into the shed for some real cutting. I don't have the luxury of a large workshop, so I just created a little corner and made a simple table for my machine. 1-tablewer.jpg For now a few edges around the machine are ok, but I'll probably make a c...

Re: Shapeoko3 #1331 - Europe, The Netherlands

*first run While I was waiting for delivery of my shapeoko I designed a plotter pen.

Shapeoko3 #1331 - Europe, The Netherlands

*The Build In general the documentation/manual is pretty good. There are a few possibilities for improvement, but if you're the type of person to run this machine you'll be more than fine with the manual. The small included Allan wrench broke off while tightening a grub screw, I could get it out us...

Re: S3 stops mid-job

Just mailed "support"... sofar, except for a very short test job I've not been able to finish a single job, not even a simple 15 minute job.... The SO3/carbide motion always stops mid job. My machine is nr 1331 (the new elect...

quality of support

Hi guy's, can I ask what's your experience with Carbide support ? Sent them 2 mails (stuff like incomplete shipment..) oldest e-mail now 9 days, just no response at all....
