Re: Any UK retailer for AcornCNC

I ordered all my equipment direct from Centroid cutting out EU dealer markup, including 2 Acorn boards, TT-2 toolsetter, DP-4 Probe and WMPG plus extended licensing with extremely rapid delivery. My second Acorn board direct from Centroid (ordered separately from Pro licence) attracted import duty a...

Re: Clearpath Inline resistor wiring.

Greetings. I have a simple question with regards to putting a resistor with 24 volt power inline to clear paths step and direction input. Please see attached image, I believe that these 2 schematics (I use the term schematics loosely) accomplish the same thing- only in Option "A" I have 2...

Re: Notepad ++ Compile issue

Suggest you check your C:\cncm folder and see if it actually contains the file called mpucomp.exe as your message could indicate it's missing. If it is missing, you will need to find the location where it is and then as Tom says, you can add its path to your command.

Hope this helps

Re: Axis moving on it's own

Mike, apologies for the dumb question but how exactly do you connect (which terminals) an oscilloscope when tracing interference ? (either end of each circuit etc?) I don't have any problem on either of my machines, just interested

Re: WCS zero X and Y macro

Unless I am missing something and you have used all available WCS depending on your licensing, why not allocate one (e.g. WCS6) just for the jig. Then you are ready to go as and when required but still retaining the flexibility of the other WCS settings for other work. Advantage is no programing re...

Re: Z Axis Plunging too Deep into part

Using Z home as your Z ref is only as good as the REPEATABILITY of your home switch. This also assumes that your Z axis is accurately calibrated of course and that EMI is not inadvertently interfering with movement. FWIW, I have to use Z home as Z ref on my Router as I do not have fixed tool holders...

Re: VFD Interference with Clearpath Servos

Your report also shows you have many Ethernet Communication Errors going back to May last year; you are still running the outdated CNC12 v4.20.1; and your RPMs/inch are set to X=0.25 / Y=0.0996 / Z=0.3143 which do not seem plausible
