Hi all…let me start off by saying it definitely could be operator error lolz. My first…well second project after making the wasteboard, is a topo map of Missouri. A few issues i had:
Every time I try to connect the computer to the router I have to reset the board on the shapeoko. The error is cutter not responding.
The first issue with my shapeoko 3 xxl was/is that the jog is stop start. This could be the laptop i’m using isn’t powerful enough…from what i’ve researched. When it homes there is no issue…just jogging.
At the 60% point through the program it stalled. I reset and started over but at the same point it stalled. The error was in the programs calculating archs. Turns out you cant save the file in inches it has to be mm…I resaved and it worked. This is puzzling to me…are there any other solutions? This seems like a workaround a bigger issue.
The last issue was at the end of the program after it had cut out the silhouette it was topping out the z axis like it had lost its way…it was cutting air and hitting the max height on the machine…in the simulation it worked fine…it did not try to cut above the stock.
I’m sure i’ll have more questions and thanks in advance. If theres any other info you need let me know…any help is very much appreciated! Thanks, Bob!
P.S. anyone in the Kansas City, MO area let me know!
