Re: Material Profiles

Here is a link to the cut test I ran yesterday. I started with the default Powermax 45XP 10ga mild steel profile (without smoothing) at 129 IPM.

Re: Material Profiles

Re: DIY Table Upgrades

Joey, You mentioned in a previous post that my resolution was really low. My drive will do 1/16 micro stepping but I haven't tried it yet. By my calculation my resolution should be 0.0004" per step. Am I calculation it correctly? McMaster 6325K13 pinion gear(PD=1.00) Gearbox 5:1 (inches / rev) ...

Re: DIY Table Upgrades

Hi Joey,

I am using a HobbyCNC 4 axis drive. I may be able to up the counts / rev up some but I will probability replace the drives though. I am trying to get the mechanics upgraded so I can get the Acorn THC.

Re: DIY Table Upgrades

Shawn, I noticed in one of your videos that your proximity sensor lights are on during normal operation. Mine don't come on until they are triggered. What kind of sensors do you have? I have NPN NC sensors.

Re: DIY Table Upgrades

Shawn, I see you have the Shop Saber round mount. Did you configure both sensors for touch? How well does the ohmic sensor work?

Re: DIY Table Upgrades

That's what I thought too. But schematic S15124 shows 2 sensors on a 3 sensor round mount being wired in parallel configured as Breakaway. I also tested it and either sensor tripped alone will signal a Breakaway. I had to configure "The input state when triggered is closed" in the wizard.
