We’ve just finished a new build, #356, of Carbide Motion that cleans up a lot of internal junk that’s collected over time.
Most importantly, it includes:
- Support for SO3 with limit switches
- Less conservative homing requirements for the Nomad
- Spindle on button during jogging for Nomad
- Rapid to current X/Y and Z buttons
- Rapid to table corners on Shapeoko with limit switches
- Offsets saved immediately to ensure they’re valid if the the program were to crash and not exit cleanly
- Rerun a job without loading
- Remember last gcode directory
- LOTS of other minor changes
- LOTS of code removed.
These are almost all from the email poll that went out about two weeks ago. It’s a big list and we’re more than a little afraid to release it broadly in case one of our changes contains a bug. If you’d like to try it:
If you have a Shapeoko with limit switches, you’ll have to enable them in the settings pane by clicking on parameter 1005 to change it from “false” to “true”
Let us know if it runs well for you.
