Re: NEMA23 Adjustments

I am running dual Y with NEMA 23's. Running both off the same driver as described here (swapped one pair to run the other way). I am using the new motor plates, so it does take new idlers side I want the belt down agains the maker slide. Edward has a method where the belt is high on one side, low in...

do you know which sender has the jog option?

thanks
This one does, http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=235

But it does not work correctly for me (draws circles, not the code I sent.)

Re: Grbl Controller by Kosme

Unfortunately Kosme's GRBL controller just seems to turn any gcode I throw at it into a series of spirals - including the hello world code. I've been having to use gcode sender to send my jobs, which is annoying as I'd love to have the jogging functions of GRBL controller :( I too get the circles.....

Re: BobCAD CAM V24 Mill Standard & BobART For only $395!!!

Having taken a few debate classes, I understand what I am about to say would not gain me any points in a match, but I'll say it anyway. (Begin slippery slope argument ): My main concern is the forum gets flooded with these sorts of things. To me, there's a really fine line between what BC is doing ...

Re: Prototype Calibration Pattern (with G-Code)

Okay, I think I have solved my problem! All of my other tests, including patterns I have made, etchings, etc, have all worked flawlessly, but this test pattern kept failing at the same point. When it drew the horizontal line (second one down), it stopped short and then everything else from that poin...

Re: G2/G3 (CW/CCW Arc Mode) Codes

This topic was covered here: http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=357 for the tinyg, but seems to hold true for GRBL on Arduino also. Aiden was doing some work on this... See reference thread.

Re: Prototype Calibration Pattern (with G-Code)

My Shapeoko is doing the same thing. There is a long scan from the second horizontal line (just over the concentric squares) over to the center vertical line. That is the exact spot mine messes up, repeatedly. The centerline, and everything after that is shifted left by about a 1/10th of an inch. V...

Seltzer 00216 Is Alive

Just wanted to put out that #216 is alive and well. New Motor plates, new x-axis plates, dual Y motor, 3xNEMA24s + 1xNEMA16, What you see in the photo is the first print (Shapeoko at half scale (GRBL was set up for 200step motor, I have 400step) and the second print (fixed GRBL). Very happy so far w...

Here's a quick run of the current pattern on my ShapeOko - excuse the super thick lines (I'm using a way blunt pencil and waaay too much pressure). It took 20 minutes to run from start to finish:

Jim,

Any chance you could provide a GRBL $ dump of your setup? Thanks!

Re: Prototype Calibration Pattern (with G-Code)

This is a great idea. ... Just to offer a little more detail: It starts by drawing about half of the grid lines for the inner boxes, and then goes and draws part of a '3' and a '6', and then returns to drawing some more grid lines, then works on the letters up top, then draws the final gird lines. ...
