Re: Uccnc can’t turn off or edit offsets.

I’ve just spent the most frustrating week of my life trying to get uccnc to work. There are a million forum questions and answers about everything cnc in the world. I can even answer some of them, but none seem to address the real basics of homing/ machine cords/ soft limits. There isn’t one video o...

Re: Uccnc can’t turn off or edit offsets.

Thank you. But if I clear and save 0 work offsets, current coords / machine coords still have a positive value. When the machine cords button is red, the zero all button doesn’t zero X axis, neither does the the individual blue zero button. I can’t manually enter 0.000 for X, when I press enter it r...

Uccnc can’t turn off or edit offsets.

Uccnc. Help with this again please. I don’t seem to be able to turn off the offset buttons, and / or I can’t clear any of them to 0000, what am I missing, or is it something simple like brains? Thanks. Peter.

Re: Ucnc. To be or not to be?

Thank you all for your help. I was a mach3 user running through a UC100. My computer died, the new one has Windows 10 not the old 7 so I am migrating to UCCNC with my old
UC100 together with my old Vcarve Pro V6.
So just hoping there is a compatible P.P. On V6. Thanks. Peter.

Help with my Heart!

Hi there team. A little help would be much appreciated for a relative newby. I have started playing with 3D models, and made the Heart and Ribbon for my lovely lady for Valentine's Day. We were both very pleased with my first effort. Then I made some double sided hearts, about 60 mm across from some...

Re: Foam board equivalent in Australia

Thank you all once again for your support. I was actually thinking that house number signs might be a simple marketable project to start up with, and though I realise that polystyrene insulation foam could be cut with a router I feel that it would be far to soft to be serviceable enough to be finish...

Re: Foam board equivalent in Australia

Thank you all for your suggestions, from them I found Multipanel have a local distributor but with a 8 x 4 x 1 inch sheet costing $400 plus $60 to ship it up from Melbourne I may have to rethink my ideas. As a newby to this game I thought it easier to learn the software ( magnificent as it is) and a...

Re: Foam board equivalent in Australia

Thank you Martin for trying to find it on Aussie websites. Foamex seems to make building polystyrene insulating sheets here, that I believe would be way to soft, and terrible to machine as the 'dust' ( for a better word ) flys everywhere and sticks to everything with static electricity.. I believe F...
