I have not used my Nomad since September 1st when My Shapeoko XXL arrived(kinda got wrapped up with the XXL). I would like to upgrade to the latest versions of Carbide Motion and Carbide create to take advantage of the tab feature and eventually to use the probing features. What exactly do I have to do get it cutting again and using the same software version as I have for the XXL
It should all just work, so long as you haven’t updated your Shapeoko to Grbl 1.1 and Carbide Motion 4.
Carbide Motion 3: http://carbide3d.com/carbidemotion/ and Carbide Create: http://carbide3d.com/carbidecreate/ should work with all Nomads running Grbl 0.9 — Carbide Create will still work with those updated to 1.1, and Carbide Motion 4 as well.
I am running CM build 4.0.410 CC Build 312
In that case, you’ll need to update your Nomad’s firmware to Grbl 1.1. Please see: http://docs.carbide3d.com/support/carbideupdater/
Reviving this thread. It appears I’m super late to the party. First post here. I’ve just received a second hand Nomad 883 Pro from eBay. First run was fine. The machine performs adequately. It’s still running GRBL .9 and I’d really like to run 1.1 so I can take advantage of the better Create tools. The updater loads and recognizes my machine just fine. Then when I hold the Z switch and click yes in the updater software it just sits on the updating screen. Has anyone else seen this? Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Nomad 883 Pro serial number 544. Thanks in advance!
