Notes on rapid positions and wasteboard leveling


(William Adams) #1

Wrote up a bit on this here: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/SO3_Function_Test#Distance_of_travel

Filled in the numbers for an XL — if someone has an SO3 or XXL and is using CM4, I’d be glad of the values for it (and if you have an XL, a comparison to how things map on your machine would be welcome).

Based on the above, I created a wasteboard level program for the XL:

SO3_XL_810x366_5.c2d (2.4 KB)

(please verify before using — it would want adjustment for example if using the Carbide 3D T track setup)

I hope it’s obvious how the sizes and positioning of the C2D file are set up based on the numbers / measurements — if anyone needs any assistance, please let us know!
