Re: Major Issue for me with 10.506

Vectric support confirmed the issue and forwarded it to development. I hope they'll have a fix soon.

Reference Issue 152595

I was lucky to have an eye on the machine or it could have resulted in damage if it kept going

Re: V-CARVE PRO UPDATE

See this thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=35380

If you look at your generated Gcode do you see a S0 (set speed to 0) on a G3 Command?

I did a work around to fix it and reported the issue.

Re: Major Issue for me with 10.506

I sent a test file to Vectric support but thought you'd guys would like to see it too. Simply save the toolpath using the out of box Grbl Inch post processor and look at the first G3 command. At the end of the line you'll see "S0" (speed zero). And the CNC faithfully turns the spindle off.

Re: Laser Tool and Tool Path Help

You define it something like this. I used to do that before I bought the Laser Module. Remember Speed is power. My CNC is set up ($30 and $31) so 24,000 RPM is 100% power

I'm loving the laser module

A big thank you to Vectric for coming out with it. It's working great for me and was a bargain. These grips are with a J-Tech 4.2W spindle mounted laser on a Shapeoko 3XL with HDZ. The flags are not finished yet but they look too good to wait. US Flag IMG_2166.jpg US Army Corps of Engineers (a commi...

Major Issue for me with 10.506

I installed the patch and some of the tool paths I generated are resetting the spindle speed to 0 on a G3 command. I check the post processor and it was using the variable [P] in the post processor. I had to change it to [S] to restore normal operation. It was working in 10.505 correctly with the ol...

Re: Laser Module with Shapeoko

I'll attach my modified Grbl PP file that works. Neil Frerari did a lot of work on the PP on the Carbide3D site and found the precision is not high enough on the standard PP with arcs enabled on GRBL. Put it in your My_PostP folder to try it That processor has laser support = "no", so until he post...
