In Carbide Motion 4.0.416 the Machine Type is Shapeoko 3, and even if I change it to XXL in the dropdown and send configuration data it still says “Shapeoko 3” in the Machine Type. Never changes.
When I select XXL in the dropdown and then calibrate and go on to run the job, the Start button won’t work. The calibration with the touch probe works fine but when I get done with that whole process the Start button won’t work and the job won’t run.
When I select XXL, close the app, and reopen it, it’s back to Shapeoko 3.
Version 4.16 crashes every time I use it. I’m back to 4.0 because I can’t use 4.16.
I’m having a terrible time getting text in gcode from VCarve using a 60 degree vee bit to work. All I get is the lightest possible scratch in the stock. Doesn’t go in
much at all. Dunno if that’s VCarve, Motion, or me. Prolly me, but I’m so frustrated. It’s acting like a drag bit, but I’ve set it up as a V-Carve job over and over. Pockets will work though. Just not V-carve. Note that this running VCarve on two different computers. The computer connected to the Shapeoko is a dedicated laptop. Nothing but Chrome and a fresh install of Windows 10 and Carbide Create/Motion.
I’m frustrated and I’ve just gotten started on this hobby.
Can anybody help?
