After researching it for a while, I purchased the Shapeoko 3 because it seemed easy to use. I have had the machine together for a few months now and have yet to complete a project. Carbide Motion seems to run into an error and shut down every time I run a project. It’s always at different times and on different projects. I suspected that MeshCAM may be the issue or may be a secondary issue. It also seems to shut down, especially now that I have “upgraded” to Windows 10.
I am fairly good with computers, but I am completely new to CAM. I have fixed the vertical axis belt problem, but I am still having trouble with something as simple as machining a name 0.1" deep into a piece of wood.
I have a Surface Pro 3, MeshCAM V6, and Carbide Motion V 2.0.314. Does anyone else have these issues? I have the dewalt router with a 1/8" end mill.
Any advice or help would be appreciated. Should I switch CAM software? Reinstall them again?
