    Re: G31 not working

    Get a real UC100 instead of a chinese fake one and your problem will be solved. (just my 2cents.) :)

    Re: Centroid Acorn experiences?

    What you have listed are all true for other controllers too like UCCNC, PlanetCNC, EdingCNC etc.. The hardware and software come from the same company. They continously improving their products. All...

    Re: Mach4+ESS or Acorn?

    The ESS works the same, it does the time critical tasks onboard not Windows. The ESS and many other controllers are also cheaper than the Acorn with more features.

    Re: Centroid Acorn experiences?

    Well, Mr.Centroid contractor, yes I'm a fanboy because I like the software is there a problem with that?

    You are right about that I have not tried the Acorn, I never said I did and I will not try...

    Re: Centroid Acorn experiences?

    Yup, ofcourse your opinion is that as you are a Centroid contractor so ofcourse Centroid is the best in your mind, no matter if it has late 80s interface and is no customisable and less features than...

    Re: Centroid Acorn experiences?

    Sure Centroid employes and contractors making those threads, CNCKeith, NTL, Gary Campbell and their friends. :D

    Talking about software: What I see is a non-customisable DOS looking UI of the Acorn...

    Re: Centroid Acorn experiences?

    Those what you read mostly were written by Centroid employees and contractors.
    You have never used mach3 and uccnc is clear from your writing. Both softwares have much more features than the Acorn...
  8. Re: UCCNC issue - Y axe shifting and reset zero during job -

    I can only bet:

    - Code is wrong.
    - If the axis stalls at that certain point only, check if the linears or bearings or whatever supports that machine if it has any problems there.
    - Also check...

    Re: New 2x4 Saturn build

    Then Vcarve calculating the time incorrecly or the Centroid doing the feedrate incorrectly.
    What the UCCNC laser plugin calculates for this kind of laser engraving jobs is always correct however it...
  10. Re: E-Stop getting triggered when interpolating circles

    Probably because your spindle motor is producing more noise if the depth of the cut is higher and if the feedrate is higher.
    Did you try to set the debounce parameter in the UCCNC to filter out the...

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    OK I undertand it now. I remember a few times my Z stepper stall with Mach3 and I always thought that some dust or something went into the Z screw, but now that you explained this I know that it...

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    And I used mach3 first and I did not see any difference in the THC performance, the only difference was that UCCNC runs the path smoother and more reliable.

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    Interesting because it is still a stepper motor which needs acceleration and decceleration no matter if it is THC control or whatever. I don't think mach3 did that you probably misunderstanding...

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    Of course you have to run with acceleration. Your motor loose steps if you run it without acceleration.

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    I never had any of these problems. I'm running a THC (proma 150) for 2 years now with which the UCCNC controls the Z axis. It runs flawless.

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    UC motion controllers all work with both Mach3, Mach4 and UCCNC. You can run both softwares, just just need a UC100 or UC400ETH or UC300ETH or AXBB-E controller. My advice is to get an ethernet...

    Re: UCCNC and Win10 questions

    You can use Windows 10. with UCCNC.
    What type of machine is this? Plasma? If it is plasma then you will need THC controller. especially if you will cut thin and bent sheets.

    I'm happy that I could help you.
  20. Re: Problem with "GOTO ZERO" & returning to where I started

    Press enter key on your keyboard after typing in the 3 in the box.

    No you can't turn it off, it would be unsafe to not lift the Z just go through everything on the table.
    Or you can turn it off...

    Re: 1st Build, will this be a decent Design?

    You can put in a diode and a buffer capacitor. That is how the SMPSs are connected in my machines. The diode protects the PSU from the spikes and the capacitor buffers the voltage. And you can...

    Re: NCStudio OR Controller

    Or you could use a small fanless computer, which is just a fully enclosed box with PC functionality with less power than what a real computer has, but still powerful enough for CNC control.

    In this case you will really need some kind of pendant controller, if you don't want a computer in your workshop.
    But then you will be limited to what that pendant can do. You cannot design anything...
