You might be able to change the max. machine speed by editing an option in Grbl — maybe slow acceleration to the point the machine can’t get up to speed?

Easiest just to add some more rubber bands until the pen is held securely
The hello world file (box_logo.tap) calls a feed rate of 5080 but the x, y and z max rate from grbl settings are 5000mmpm, so, this would be the same as running in rapid mode all the file?
Could someone post the grbl settings for the S3 please?

Good day!

First post might as well be a successful HelloWorld right? :D This is my first CNC, pretty damn excited to start exploring what it is capable of!

I don't know exactly how big mine was, but that looks small. Are your microstepping switches set to 1/4?

You are correct, we had the switches set incorrectly out of the box. Post the drawing we set out to do some test cutting/carving, once done we measured it and discovered the issue and corrected it. I see you are located in Portland as well, good to know there is someone else local with a machine!

Hi,

First Hello World print, bit wonky, could this all be due to the Sharpie and/or table shake ? Probably not right ?

Appreciate the input

It kind of looks like it missed a few steps when going horizontally (X direction) at one point. Are any of your belts really loose?

It looks like something slipped. You could have missed steps, but it's more likely to be a loose belt, a loose set screw in a belt pulley, a badly attached Sharpie, or even the paper having moved around.

Hmm, no, the belts are all guitar string tight, I think it might be shaky table & bad sharpie attachment (maybe)

I'll move to a different setup where she's a bit more pinned down and try again.

thanks

I ran my 'Hello World' with the Shapeoko drawn by a sharpie.
It turned out nice ..but backwards, like looking in a mirror.
I switched the 'Y' motor locations and now works as intended.
The right side of the board needed to control the stepper on the left side. Good thing the wires had plenty of length.

This machine looks great. Good job guys. Now to cut something :P
