Re: CNC12 unresponsive and ethernet communication error

I had the same issues and found that windows had turned the firewall back on.
I turned it off and the Acorn is working fine.

Re: Setting up Auto/Tech hybrid steppers in the Wizard?

Doc,

I specifically asked him if the NEMA 23's were 1.2 deg 3 phase steppers and he said no, they are 1.8 deg 2 phase steppers.

Maybe they have changed them after you ordered yours and maybe that's how they were able to drop their price.

Re: Setting up Auto/Tech hybrid steppers in the Wizard?

Because I may be interested on using these hybrid steppers on a project in the future I decided to give Automation Technology a call and ask them about their recommended step setting.

Re: Setting up Auto/Tech hybrid steppers in the Wizard?

The spreadsheet in this post may be of help in setting the microsteps and ratio.

Re: Recommended Lathe X & Z Axis Inches/Minute

I've gotten off to a fairly good start with Fusion 360. Here is a link to where I got to this evening.
The model was exported from Alibre and imported into Fusion 360.

This is a video of the X Axis motor mount being simulated in Fusion 360.

Re: Recommended Lathe X & Z Axis Inches/Minute

Hi Marty, I was looking over some of the dimensions and realized that I need to do some "clean-up" so someone making the parts can use standard imperial dimension tools. As I'm sure you know, you have to flip back and forth between metric and imperial when fitting something to a metric based assembl...
