  2. Re: About 20 Months Later - Would I Buy Another One? - PCNC1100

    Was going to say my machine will hit any preset offset from home switches at +/- 0.002 or better after machine is shut off for day and parts are all next digit out or better.
  3. Re: About 20 Months Later - Would I Buy Another One? - PCNC1100

    That is where I get confused about these threads. I don't see one thread around this forum that hypes this brand. I see people that take the time to share what and how they build using their tools...

    Re: How to back up PP Software?

    I think install from scratch with usb is always best. And restore backup data and settings if possible. A new box would almost require this.
    I replaced my controller about same time as you and my...

    Re: Digital Microscope

    True, In my case the object was a bit to big for a scanner.
    I like the microscope idea. I have one and thought of making a TTS holder for it. Mostly to test how well it would work as an optical...

    I have looked at this in the manual. The information looks to be old and the part numbers do not match a product on site. In the past I have use a tripod and camera to take 1:1 macro shot. then...

    Re: Surface probing

    Now that Tormach sells a large surface area router. Surface probe / mapping would be a very useful addition to PP software.

    Re: Tormachs new 2x4 router (;-)

    True!
    It does spec 6" gantry clearance and to me that implies the spindle with tool lifts above gantry, so user should be able to get most of the 2.5"radius turn envelope.

    Re: Tormachs new 2x4 router (;-)

    What I was thinking! A look thru the owners manual does show a A axis connection. That leaves only 5" or less for 4th axis material size. Maybe they plan extensions or other mod for people that want...

    Re: Wifi adapter

    I didn't even think of that! Forgot about old 802.11 routers and hardware still being around. :(

    All my PDF Files load and display per the current settings. Easy to change as desired.
  19. Re: Path Pilot v2.0 Network (Samba) Share Not Accessible

    Thanks for the note, Tormach also mentioned this. I must say Tormach tech support sent me perfect instructions to fix problem. +1 cookie for them.
    I had messed with this for last couple months off...
  20. Re: Path Pilot v2.0 Network (Samba) Share Not Accessible

    Hey thanks Rdsi You were on the right track.

    Tormach sent me a long list of things to do to get it working.

  21. Re: Path Pilot v2.0 Network (Samba) Share Not Accessible

    Default "workgroup" name is on all devices I have. No documented way to set or change this on pp.
  22. Re: Path Pilot v2.0 Network (Samba) Share Not Accessible

    Still found no way to get this working!
    Tormach posted a video on how to do this and it works for them. Perform the same setup on my machine and network and I get no connection and a smb error.
