use 0.9i:
http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... 2_Hex_File

or compile a new copy:
https://github.com/grbl/grbl/wiki/Compiling-Grbl

then update the settings:
http://docs.carbide3d.com/article/38-sh ... l-settings

There is now a Carbide3D Knowledge Base article on this --- hopefully that will help: http://docs.carbide3d.com/article/56-ca ... ine-or-jog --- let us know if there are any improvements or changes which could be made

Ok done flashing and updating my settings. All went well and now my machine is jogging.

Thank you for all the help. Will try the hello world later and update here. :D

Here is my hello world.

One suggestion would be to have the default hex file for the shapeoko 3 for people like me that may have a problem.

That way flashing would be a breeze.

Thanks again to everyone for all the help.

One more thing.

The posted grbl setting for shapeoko 3 with carbide v2.2 board should be
$100=40 (x, step/mm)
$101=40 (y, step/mm)
$102=40 (z, step/mm)

instead of what is listed here(http://docs.carbide3d.com/article/38-sh ... l-settings)
$100=20 (x, step/mm)
$101=20 (y, step/mm)
$102=20 (z, step/mm)

If you put the default that is listed everything will be half size.

Okay so the micro-stepping now defaults to 1/8.

Wonder if the values for acceleration or any of the other settings changed...

I've updated the wiki and that page on the Knowledge Base now as a bit of a note on this.

I just noticed this thread, and realized something. Because USB power is enough to allow the controlling computer/tablet/whatever to connect to the board, if the power supply was bad, you'd see that you're connected from the computer, but you wouldn't be able to jog or run a job. Without more testing, you wouldn't have a way to diagnose this particular problem. With a multimeter, you would be able to test the voltage coming off the power supply, but I'm not sure where to recommend actually using the meter probes, as you need to be careful not to short anything out while testing. Just a thought in case anyone else has a similar problem and finds this thread.

That's a good point, and one of the advantages of installing the fan --- you should have power if the fan spins up, and if it doesn't, then you know what to check.
