Hello. I just finished building T8 CNC mini running 0.9 GRBL. I can't get a descent cut off the machine when using the easel cloud software.
The machine itself looks like it should work okay. . but when I load a project the spindel is all over the place. Posted image of machine and a cut of my name. . the letter 'h' moves to the right at least three times and letter 'J' and 'O' are smashed together.
Really new to CNC and not sure what to do next. Not sure if it is easel or something up with the machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.!
Alright, i am using a Dewalt DW660 router as a spindle in my cnc mill. Problem is, it only has collets for 1/8'' and 1/4''
Is it possible to get a adapter thats got a jacobs chuck on one side, and a 1/4'' smooth shaft on the other? i know they make 1/4'' hex to jacobs chuck, but i need 1/4'' round. is that a thing, and where can i buy it?
what if i just put the 1/4'' hex in my collet, will it work? (i doubt it)
Currently putting together the Root 3 CNC and I'm a big fan of both the RAMPS1.4 running Marlin and F360, with an interest in its CAM tool path generation.
Anyone know of a post-processor I can use to create the Gcode to run on Marlin?
SOLUTION: The Mostly Printed CNC uses the same setup and their website hosts a post-processor for all Marlin based CNCs.
Hi all you clever people - my mini desktop cnc machine model 2417 which was working fine until the dog chewed one of the stepper motors wiring plug off (wasnt plugged in) i dutifully changed the plug and connected it back in and while i was in a stupid mood i updated the firmware - now only the x axis will move in one direction only, when i try to jog the other steppers they hum away but wont move. All connections are good etc. I can only assume in my moment of "i am going to fix this even though its working fine" that the firmware is wrong or more likely i fucked it up (but i followed the chinese guide on how to do it it must be right, right?).
Basically my request to all of you is how the fuck do i fix it or what do you think the issue is?. I changed the stepper drivers to new ones i had just bought.
