    Re: Spindle speed 7000rpm ok?

    The second pass is easy. Once you have the G-code for the first pass you just copy the text and change the parts you want to change, like feed rate and milling depth. The G-code is text, so it is...

    Re: Spindle speed 7000rpm ok?

    Anything is possible, as long as you accept painfully slow speed.



    The problem is that the slower the RPM the less is the torque, so in your case, I'd get a new 48V supply, or connect a 12V in...
  3. Re: Mach3 VFD control via modbus using brain file

    Hi,

    I missed your post, sorry about that. Anyway, my Mach3 is a mess since I no longer use it, so I'd have to figure out which Mach3 files to send you and which version of them, and this may take...

    Re: 200 USD for anyone who can help me to set up my ATC

    That's very good. I mean, I am glad you fixed it. I don't know why you want to delete it, because it could be informative for others. Personally I think it's much better if you describe the solution...

    Re: 200 USD for anyone who can help me to set up my ATC

    Good luck.

    :cheers: ...not that I'd be able to help you, and also $200 is not a lot of money unless it is a simple issue. I mean, you are trying to use somebody else's macro, that can take...

    Re: F-Engrave V 1.66 fails to run on Win-XP

    Well... Excuse me for saying this, but XP was outdated for a long time. I see no reason why a freeware developer of such excellent piece of software should continue support it. Perhaps it's time to...
  8. Re: Running 2 stepper motors off a single drive

    Actually, when you say "the major qty of all 3dPrinter run 1 driver for 2 stepper and that work quite perfectly" your conclusions are wrong. Yes, true that many (I don't know if really the most) 3D...

    Re: Mach 3 VS Mach 4

    I can't say much about the development team of Mach4, but I think that one major reason why Mach3 became so widely spread was the fact the the license key was cracked and the cracked software was...

    What are you planning to print? Do you know how long it will take to print something with that size? A week or more...

    Re: CNC router to 3D Printer conversion ?

    Don't do it. Not worth the effort and the money. You'll never be happy with it and is going to be too slow.

    Re: My UCCNC probing screen and macros

    I am using different values for probe radius and so far it never went wrong, so I still don't understand the problems you say you have. Which mode do you mean is not working? Which version of UCCNC...

    Re: My UCCNC probing screen and macros

    I am sot sure I understand what you are saying... The probe should stop immediately (depending on how fast you are probing, since it has to decelerate the motion and stop in a controlled manner) when...
  14. Re: Aluminum Extrusion CNC frame from china similar to CNCrouterParts.com?

    20x40 extrusions are far too weak fora CNC. I have never actually seen one, but my current 3D printer is built out of 30x60 and I would not like to build a CNC from that, let alone 20x40. My CNC is...

    Re: My DIY 3D printer

    Hi,
    We had a summer in my part of the world, and so priorities were turned elsewhere. My current 3D printer is also working very well, so I did some other things the last months. What is left to do...

    Re: Which bits to use for PCB milling?

    Hi,
    I don't know what you mean by Z spindle assembly #1 and #2. I had 2 spindle motors, the first one was a DC motor and the second one is the one I am using now, which is a 1.5kW brushless motor...

    Also, the 100x80mm limitation of the free version of Eagle is occasionally a PITA.

    I have a small CNC and it does mill aluminium with very satisfying results, better than what I expected when I built it. Mine is a moving table...
  22. Re: Milling PCBs with free software... What's out at the moment?

    I started testing this but gave up because I didn't like Fritzing. The library is very limited and creating parts seems a bit tricky and complex.

    What I am testing now is EasyEDA, and that seems...
  23. Re: Milling PCBs with free software... What's out at the moment?

    I don't clamp, only use tape. Clamping, as you say also, cause warping/bending, taping the PCB edges removes warping (for me), if there is any. I try to avoid double sided tape because in my...
  24. Re: Windows, UC100 and UCCNC not happy with each other

    I think that if Windows locks when you have already shut down UCCNC then there is another problem which you probably won't solve with the UC400. Also if you constantly have connection losses then the...
  25. Re: Milling PCBs with free software... What's out at the moment?

    Perhaps it depends on the PCB. I have some large sheets which I normally cut out maximum 100x160 sizes from. The sheets I have are pretty old (30+ years) but flat and high quality. I have also some...
