Re: Computer won't turn off- help

So did you get it to shut off on its own?

Right-click on the drive icon to see options for safe ejecting and other things.

Re: Nebula Limits Switch Challenges... Again.

I wanted to bump this topic again as mention of the new configurator and soft limits option is (IMO) genius! Worth every owner of a Probotix CNC seeing. Our fall semester starts up soon, and I anticipate having to deal with a bad Z-axis limit switch on our nebula again. It failed on the last day of ...

Re: Computer won't turn off- help

Yes, a USB Drive may have a driver associated with it that Linux sees running when the drive is still in place. Easy way to tell... safely eject that drive before you shutdown the PC and see if it turns off reliably if the drive isn't plugged in.

Re: Sabotage

Update on this topic... This Fall our Probotix CNCs will be in their own room. The door on that room will have a security lock on it allowing only authorized users access. A log is kept of all IDs accessing that lock. Not sure yet if a security camera will overlook the room, but one could be install...

Re: Computer won't turn off- help

I can't be positive without seeing your Linux PC setup, but here is one thing to consider: Have you installed any other software on that PC? The machine may hang when trying to close a program before shutting down if the program won't be closed without saving work or finishing some routine. This doe...

Re: New to the CNC World

@KellyC : If you can't find a local CNC from Probotix to check out, there are at least a few web videos showing them in action. Some here on Probotix' web site, and several on Youtube. I have a Meteor, and oversee a Nebula and another Meteor where I work. The open frame design permits very creative ...

Re: Meteor with extras

Wish you were closer. I'd bring you cash and come pick it up if you were in Kansas.

Re: help with M8-M9

Glad I could help. To network mine I tried several USB wifi dongles and never found one that worked with Linux. I ended up getting an ethernet-to-wifi card that didn't need any configuration and it worked fine. I plugged it first into my Windows PC to tell it what my wifi password was I believe. It ...

Re: help with M8-M9

That outlet (if I remember correctly) is connect directly to a power cord on one leg and the other leg goes through a relay that is controlled (on/off) by a command from LinuxCNC. So be sure that (removable) power cord is in place and plugged in. If it is and you still get nothing when the on-screen...
