Re: Fusion 360 Post Processor for Probotix CNC routers

For some reason I haven't been getting notifications of replies to this thread (I must have my settings messed up). Anyways, it looks like there was an update to Fusion 360 that caused those errors sometime in the July/August 2018 timeframe. I normally use VCarve so I didn't notice this issue until ...

Re: LinuxCNC homing grief

Thanks for the problem description and update. It will help me (and others) recognize these potential symptoms when the limit switches are going bad.

Vectric VCarve and Aspire G93 Rotary Post Processors

Hi All - In the latest updates from Vectric (v9.5) VCarve and Aspire both gained a lot of new Rotary Features. Among them was the ability to directly output G93 code which is really needed with LinuxCNC when doing rotary work (otherwise some moves are just too slow). I had previously written a progr...

Fusion 360 Post Processor for Probotix CNC routers

Hi All, I have created a Fusion 360 post processor that works with my Nebula. The output is very similar to the Vectric post processor. I thought others may find it useful. Here are a highlight of the features: - Output GCode has an extensive header with lots of information about setup - Output GCod...

Zinnia - Kinetic Sculture

Here is a video of my last project which was a lot of fun called Zinnia : https://youtu.be/wARqn7d1vtQ -- all the wooden parts were made on a Nebula.

SCALE = 6.6666
FERROR = 0.08
MIN_FERROR = 0.04
HOME_IGNORE_LIMITS = 1

Slow Rotary Axis: Solution

I wanted to share with you all a program I wrote that converts G94 tool paths to G93 (inverse time mode). This solves the problem of the rotary axis running so slowly when using tool paths exported from VCarve/Aspire. I setup a website to explain it in more detail (including a video demo -- skip to ...

Re: Rotary Axis Error: Joint 3 Following Error

Thanks - I am hesitant to re-run the configurator since I have done a lot of customization to the AXIS interface (like adding a job timer and buttons for commands I use a lot). I also have added a large number of custom commands to the Xbox controller -- I can run most everything from it and hardly ...

Re: Wooden Waves

(Sorry for the slow reply - I did't realize I hadn't selected the option to get e-mail notifications) First off thanks it was a really fun project! Now to answer your questions: 1) Machining time: Each side took about 20 minutes for the roughing cut then about 40 minutes for the finishing pass. So i...
