Re: G Code Ripper

Hey Eric,

There have been many times where I could use 'Mesh Bed Leveling" for some jobs. If Marlin can do it, I don't see why it couldn't be done. Every time I use it on my 3D printer, I think "What if" or "If only". ;)

Re: v4.62 Router: Issue with Y axis homing since upgrade from 4.20.1 Mill <answered>

Thanks Keith! A question though then, why gray out or lock the drop downs for those settings then when they still need to be set properly? That's what causes the problem that has been encountered here when we choose to create our own first (or having already copied it over) and those are locked out ...

Re: v4.62 Router: Issue with Y axis homing since upgrade from 4.20.1 Mill <answered>

It would seem we have a blockage here. :D I'll see if I can make a video of it. What it is, is that you are led to believe that once selecting "Create my own" (working from the top of the page down) and the M91/M92 boxes are then disabled, that CNC12 will ignore those defaults and use what...

Re: v4.62 Router: Issue with Y axis homing since upgrade from 4.20.1 Mill <answered>

Keith, I (and apparently Gerald & Eric) have a custom home file that uses M91 for X Y homing, so here's the scenario..... 1. You've done a fresh install and copied over your custom cncm.hom 2. You start setting things up in the wizard and in homing and travel, the first thing you do is set "...

Re: Weird Artifacts When 3D Carving

You might want to drop down to a smaller ballnose as well. The 0.25" ballnose doesn't fit between some of the letters, thus the needed negative offset, which takes off some of your letters width.

Re: Weird Artifacts When 3D Carving

Probably several things happening here. First, when doing 3D work, when setting up a job in Aspire, I'll never use anything lower than "Very High 7X Slower" for resolution. This helps to keep the pixel size smaller in relation to your job size. That setting should be fine for the size and ...

Re: v4.62 Router: Issue with Y axis homing since upgrade from 4.20.1 Mill

Gerald (and maybe Keith), If you did a clean install and manually set it up with the Wizard, there's a situation that I have run into in the past (reported this quite some time back Keith, but didn't follow up on it with you). In Homing and Travel, if you choose to use "Create your own" an...

Re: Acorn 4.62 - JTech Laser 7w

Hey Peter, As far as I know, the laser module is still available. https://portal.vectric.com/laser I've used the LightBurn trial a little and just used the generic GRBL config. I'll probably buy it sometime, but since I'm well versed in Aspire, it meets my needs. One thing I don't like about LB, and...

Re: Acorn 4.62 - JTech Laser 7w

Hello Peter, welcome aboard. I have a 7watt JTech and use VCP/Aspire with the laser plugin, and I've made a custom post for Aspire that has been working well. You're welcome to try it. It's customized for what I wanted it to do, but can easily be edited to suit. It limits the Z movements, warns that...
