Did you have to edit the post processor to get F360 to output code that was useable right away? I generated some code, but to get it to run I had to go put a J0 every line that there was an I and no J. Pretty cool software, very easy to use otherwise.

I found this video of some one hauling ass on an SO2... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85C88YrdhHg

Mike - I was doing that too, but the only issue is with the Carbide software choking on the lack of J0/I0, etc. Using the same code with Universal G Code Sender or ChiliPeppr works perfectly well for me.

I guess I'll try the new Carbide3D post processor from Fusion with Carbide's software to see if it works that way.

Hey Guys,

I've been following this thread on how to stiffen up the z axis plate. There is a question I have about space clearance?
I've attached a picture with annotation to my concern. The gap between the z axis plate and the aluminum railing for the z axis v wheel is very small how do you guy manage to put a nut behind there ?

or

Do you counter sink a hole from the back and use a flat head screw?

thanks
Henry

not sure how to upload two image but theres the other configuration if I add a nut behind the plate to secure the aluminum plate, I find the gap is too small.

I drilled and tapped the steel.

I just did a mod like this (haven't written it up yet) and I bought flat head cap screws and countersunk them into the back of the plate.

I drilled and tapped the steel plate. Wasn't sure if the screws would work loose and bind against the extrusions for thru-bolting.

So far the screws tapped into the steel have not worked loose.
