Re: Acorn Router v5.18 release candidate #1 is now available for download

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but in Graphing mode set range I was able to set the 'Start', but not able to set the 'End' range.

Graphic preview in Graph looks great BTW.

Re: Request help with KP-3 Probe install

Make sure you have the correct resistor bank values for the operating voltage in each bank on the Ether1616.

Re: What controls the RPM

The G-Code typically controls the spindle RPM and Feed Speed "M3 S12000 " would turn your spindle on FWD direction, 12000 RPM, and 'F80" would command a Feed of 80 IPM if using imperial settings. Check your G-Code file using a text editor like Notepad++ and you will see that the Feed ...

Re: Acorn Router v5.18 release candidate #1 is now available for download

Try using G30 P3, there was a change a while back where G30 is being utilized for a specific function.

I used G30 for my fixed tool height plate location, changed to G30 P3, works fine.

Re: Centroid Operator Control Panel Interface Board: USB-BOB

Personally I would test with a different 5VDC source than the BOB to see what the current draw is and see if it is within the parameters in the manual. You don't want to release the ozone or smoke from BOB.

Re: OPCON and USB-BOB

There are lots of joysticks for two axis moving, like in any RC control, or here is an example of a profile measuring machine in my job. But these are analogue, more throw, more speed, or in RC controls more travel speed depending on what is controlled. Uwe Uwe, I already asked about analog joystic...

Re: Remote heartbeat

you'll find once you get the machine configured and running you never look at the heartbeat again. Jep, turn on and make parts. I usually do not bother with heartbeat, ever though I am testing lots of beta software :lol: Uwe Only time I need to look at the heartbeat is when installing fresh install...

Re: Centroid Operator Control Panel Interface Board: USB-BOB

By the schematic you have provided, they say to connect LED to source voltage. You could always add in a low value resistor - maybe 100 ohms in series.

Re: Can Clearpath SDSK & Hybrid Steppers be connected to C86ACCP ?

I'm mot sure if the 100 ohm resistors for enable, & step and direction signals are required on the Acornsix for the Clearpath steppers which are required on the Acorn. I I used a small breadboard I had lying around to mount the resistors to just to make the install a little easier. My experience...
