Re: Do I need a pause after sending a mn S command?

But why does it take 12 seconds for your spindle to get up to speed? I prefer 2-3 seconds. 12 is the default on a 1.5kw Chinese spindle / VFD kit. Just using the 12 seconds as an example. I'll most likely change that setting to something lower. That's the reason for the question. Wondering if I'll ...

Do I need a pause after sending a mn S command?

Looking at changing the GRBL post processeor (Inch) which seems to get ignored in favor of the mm one.

I'm just wondering... If my spindle has a 12 ramp up to speed, do I need to add a 12 second pause after the speed command, or will the controller know to wait for the spindle?

Re: Plywood Appearance Setting In Job Set Up

I have a collection of over 200 wood images in both horizontal and vertical orientations. I'd give you a link, but my server git hit by lightning last night, so it'll be a few days before it gets back up. Maybe someone who's grabbed vthem from me candy send them to ya. Why would you want that many?...

Re: Sandpaper grits...now the same on the pond:)

Damn you guys. Read here about the quiet compressors at Harbor Freight and had to go get me one. Spent $360 while there. Ugh. That place is to me what Ikea is to my wife.

Re: 10.5 is COMING SOON - Watch this space

The issue you are encountering appears to be as a result of having multiple users accessing the same license, which is in fact a breach of your licence agreement. I'm just curious (fully license user here, and it doesn't apply to me) - your license agreement states: (2.2.2) If you share access to o...

Re: Making clipart?

Hi Mike, I’m not sure I’m understanding your question. The Aspire software has all the necessary tools and features to create your own relief-model ClipArt. There are numerous video tutorials that show the process. Do you need some additional clarification beyond those resources? Maybe we can help....

Making clipart?

Is there any way at all to make clipart of relief carvings? I can (and have) download stuff from Design And Make. Is there a way to make something like this myself? Tried both V-Carve and Aspire. Can't seem to find a way.

Re: 10.5 is COMING SOON - Watch this space

Anything that is not straight is a "curve". An arc is a curve, but it is a special type of curve in that it is radial. I am curious as to why the small segments are an issue to begin with? Back in Neanderthal days memory was an issue as well as processing speed. A cnc machine does not cut true arcs...

There's already a tool that converts Beziers to curves.
Yeah, but that's cool one at a time. Unless there's a tool I'm unaware of?

Re: 10.5 is COMING SOON - Watch this space

Can we get a feature that concerts all beziers to curves when outputting a tool path? Can you explain what you mean? Here's the issue. There are round lines that are curves. But beziers are a different animal. The problem comes in when you output a bezier to a toolpath with a post processeor that u...
