Re: Lack of user manual

Maybe you should get into the corporate software world to show those greedy sons a guns how it should be done? There is an opportunity for you here! Since they are not doing it right you could write that "manual" and sell it to new users! No one ever cuts corners in the corporate world to keep their...

Re: Diode Laser Attachement

Thanks TReischl, sound simple enough if you know what you are doing, I have no idea how to even start to create or modify a post processor, I thought there may have been something in vp pro to write a g code without the z axis being involved. :? Nick I was not born knowing how to do anything, well,...

Re: Lack of user manual

"manuals" have pretty much gone the way of the Dodo bird. I am not thrilled by this myself but I sort of understand it. Things change really fast in the software world, about the time a manual was ready to go it would be about the right time to toss it in the trash and start over. I like tutorials a...

Shark forum would be the best place to ask that.

Re: Diode Laser Attachement

I modified the post to create a new laser post for my machine.

Fairly simple, just remove or comment out all the Z motion. Make sure to work on a copy!

Re: Offset rotary path

It will cut just fine as modeled. As to modeling it in Aspire? If you already have something that produces 3D models what is the point?

Re: LArge crucifix

Kind of agree with Bec on this. If'n it were me Doug. .. I would build the cross out of two pieces of wood with a lap joint and then glue them together. Then model Jesus and the INRI as separate pieces. A benefit is that you could add more thickness to Jesus. Would reduce the heck out of material us...

Re: How to stop wood warping?

There is no magic solution or we would all be using it. Using battens on the backside sometimes helps, though it can lead to splitting and cracking. Removing some of the wood with a rough cut leaving plenty behind and then allowing it to rest a few days/weeks can work but takes planning and some fig...

Re: Convert PDF to editable Vectors

If you want top quality results it pays to learn how to manually trace artwork. Just my two cents.

Re: new to cnc

you have a mismatch between your machine units and what you are producing in the g code. Looks like your machine is set to run metric.

Re: Dual spindles

Actually, it could be a mechanical or a software thing. For example, LinuxCNC supports software ganging of spindles. On the other hand having two machines rather than a single machine with ganged spindles provides additional flexibility, a vastly wider set of choices and also gives you a working ma...

Re: Sharpening Ball-nose

+1 on GE's suggestion. Been using them for a few years now and am completely happy with them. What I really like is that they are so inexpensive it is easy to have several spares on hand. I run a porter cable router for a spindle. I finally bought metric collets for it so I could use the inexpensive...

Re: Dual spindles

If you are always doing the same thing on both spindles then it is a slaved spindle and is a mechanical thing, not software.
