I’ve been successfully using Carbide Create and Carbide Motion on my Pro XXL for a few months now. However, I need automatic leveling for a job I’m working on [*] and decided to try bCNC. I’m using a Raspberry Pi 400 (RPi 4 built into the keyboard) and have correctly installed bCNC.
When I run it,I can connect to my machine but when I do, it stutters in the Y+ direction for a few inches then stops and bCNC flags an error and disconnects. The movement sounds like the machine is trying to move too fast and is missing steps. CM has never done this - it has been working great and still does if I go back to it.
Is there a bCNC tutorial someplace that describes the required setup for a Shapeoko? Initial parameters like speeds and machine size, sample initialization file or whatever? Anyone else have bCNC working on a Shapeoko?
Thanks in advance.
[*] - The pieces I’m working on are slightly warped reclaimed wood and I need to machine away only about 0.045" while engraving some words for a sign. I cannot fly surface the wood since it is already finished on a 0.030" think veneer.
