Re: ClearPath SDSK Motor Schematics Release 4

The two schematics show 2 different suggested ways of connecting your system. The 2nd relay board shown on S14972 connected to H10 is optional for outputs to your peripherals (Vac, Coolant, hydraulics etc) if needed.

This renders the return spring redundant and the quill may or may not be to one side of the lash. In that case, adjust...

Re: Fusion 360 Personal Edition Changes Coming Oct 1

Would Vectric's Vcarve Pro or Aspire be a reasonable alternative to Fusion 360 for work on both Precision Mill and a Router or am I trying to compare Apples with Pears? I own both, and IMO it depends greatly on what sort of projects you want to do. Fusion 360 is a full parametric 3D modeler. Vcarve...

Unzip the ZIP file to desktop or elsewhere and then run the SETUP.EXE from there. - Your 2 screenshots of the PING attempts do NOT show any success whatsoever from t...
