    Re: Question about old Fadel Machines

    I have one of these for each of my machines.
    USBCNC-FAD-INT - Calmotion

    There are a few other options out there but I have used this model for years with no problems.

    Re: Solidworks file with sketch.

    As far as I know you can't do it directly with Fusion. But this plug in will allow it.

    Install the plug in per the instructions at the link......

    Re: Suggestions for brand new

    You will not be cutting slides with a $2000 "beginner" CNC. UNLESS you get some really old machine with "good bones" at a surplus sale. However a small desktop machine would be good for learning. ...

    Re: Baldor Spindle Inverter Board Datasheets

    I bit the bullet and bought a new inverter. I replaced just about everything on the board and it worked for a little while. The same resistors fried again and I just gotta get that machine ready. ...

    US Market

    Does ZW care anything about the US market. It has been radio silence despite the new improvements and releases. .

    Re: Mastercam 2022 2d dynamic mill on mach3

    Probably just the way the Mach3 controller is displaying I and J locations somewhere off the table. This is used for the math of the toolpath but not used for the actual toolpath. Can you send a...

    Re: Stainless Steel 316 VS 316L Difference

    304 is a pain to machine, in my opinion. It work hardens as you cut it and if you lighten up on the cuts it just turns nasty after a while. in my experience 304 is almost always used in food grade...

  12. Re: Copy sketch - interesting issue/question, looking for ideas

    Make your sketches defined to the sketch elements. When you copy and paste a sketch the "anchor" (usually the origin) is missing. So you will have anything based on that undefined. If you define a...

    Re: mastercam interface problem

    Trying to make sense of anything with the Mastercam interface is futile. CNC Software Inc. has a massive domination over the CAM industry and is not interested in the user experience.

    Awesome. Double the necks for a few extra inches.
  16. Re: Where to Find Tool Holders and Micro Drills

    Shouldn't be a problem. The only thing with 304 is it work hardens so it seems counter intuitive to slow the RPM and increase the feeds a bit. I would use the regular calculations for cobalt and go...

    It is like putting $500 tires on a $100 car to make it work better. At this point it is the challenge. AND the fact that the new spindle driver is 2500 bucks, As of now I am out...

    Re: Facing not symmetrical...

    Not quite sure what you mean. But Fusion will drive the edge of the cutter to the overlap. Sold let's say you have a 3" fly cutter and tell it to cut one inch past the stock. It will drive the...
  22. Re: What is your best mod you have done to your Fadal

    A jib crane to move my 4th axis table on and off the table. Another. I tapped power for shop lights tied in to their useless spot lights. And probably my favorite is the Calmotion USB upgrade.

    Re: VMC4020 Feed on all axis really slow

    Maybe the feed potentiometer went kaput??? There's not much else in the way of that circuit.

    ETA: Saw you "over ride" the pots. But for as cheap as they are I would swap them out first.

    My "pros" (myself included) prefer a hand rubbed matte finish on the neck with >220 grit sanding. Anything shiny can be sticky.

    Re: Calmotion USB wont run whole program

    Check grounding. I had a heck of a time in my previous shop with intermittent problems. All was traced back to bad grounding. In my new shop with new wiring I haven't had a problem.
