Re: Pre-Release of the next Update!

It might. That whole system was overhauled to be faster and less error prone. Try it and see and if it doesn't work post here, or you can send me the gcode file at davep@armadilloarmor.com and I'll try it.

Re: Pre-Release of the next Update!

Been using the pre-release exclusively for awhile now and it's working great! Table view just showed me a part that was a little outside the limits of the cutter and saved me some wasted AR500 steel, which is pricey stuff.

Re: Just got my table running but might have a problem

If you use the cut styles panel to add Pierce points it will make lead ins, but it doesn't work with all gcode so you'll want to check it before you cut. Lead ins will look like semi circles the same color as the cut path.

Re: Just got my table running but might have a problem

I've had a knocking sound from this screw hitting the rack when the motor was too close to the rack.

Re: Just got my table running but might have a problem

The thumping sound as it moves when using the arrow buttons on the tablet is just from the controller blipping the pulses to the motors and is normal. It shouldn't do it while cutting. Warm motors is also normal, but they shouldn't get scalding hot. My z-axis motor in particular gets pretty hot. I'd...

When the customer asks you to fill in the margins on a big order...

I have a repeat customer who orders a bunch of 3/8" thick pipe end caps for oil fields and whatnot and on the last order he asked me to fill in the gaps between circles with 5" end caps and stars 3" and bigger. No idea what he's going to do with all these stars :lol:

Re: Question for the group?

I've gotten .dxf files from a few sources and they usually need some doctoring to produce good gcode. The tablet won't read dxf files so you need to convert them to gcode. The issue you'll run into with dxf files and generating gcode from Inkscape is that a single shape will get broken up into multi...
