Re: Octoprint for CNC / Grbl

Hey, I just hooked my 3D printer up to a Raspberry Pi in my garage and using wifi + OctoPrint I printed a part from my Mac which is on the same network but in my computer room. So in other words. My 3D printer is now wireless. I do not have a webcam hooked up but Octoprint has provisions for that as...

Re: ELECTRONICS DON'T WORK ANYMORE

I would be cautious about using that power supply. It shouldn't have done what it did. Since the motor driver was replaced I would suspect there is something wrong with the arduino.

Re: Help me identify the problem!

Another thing to check is the motor power supply. It might be giving up for some reason.

Re: #1016, Conversion 1M x1M for Hobby Panels

When will it be released?
Hopefully at the end of this weekend.

I just want to put out there what worked and what didn't and where I see this thing going next.

I don't think it will be quiet as exciting as the trailer but you never know...

Re: Help me identify the problem!

Is it always the same axis?

Make sure the power cable to the spindle is far away from the USB and Motor cables.

Re: Help me identify the problem!

The default speeds (feed and seek) are set to 750 mm/min on Arduino, but in CamBam they are set to 400 (cut) and 200 (plunge). I think you have wrong thinking here. Cut and plunge are feeds. I don't think the seek of 750mm/min is being over ridden by CamBam. You might try lowering the seek rate ($5...

You might think about getting some type of lock washer in case the bolts aren't quite long enough for the Nylock nuts.

I like the clean look of your machine. It doesn't look "low budget" at all..
