Re: WOO-HOO! It's Here!

I had the same problem when I set up my asteroid a couple of weeks ago. Only error message. I found out that I had to have the joystick plugged in or the Linuxcnc won't run and a long list of errors comes up. Hope that's all your problem is.

Re: Reviews, Gripes, ETC.

I too have had a good experience with Probotix and the employees. When I received my Asteroid 2 weeks ago, I got it setup that same evening and was anxious to start testing. Turns out the z axis was inoperative. Since I couldn't wait (excitement), I swapped the wires from the Z axis and the A axis a...

Re: 110v Spindle Relay run on shutdown

I had noticed this behavior too and my concern was that the router could turn on while changing a bit etc. if there was power bump or something to crash the linuxcnc program. I always turn the switch off on the router when changing bits now.

Re: Engraving acrylic

Thanks, I did try going to .010 but still had the melting. I should note that I was using extruded acrylic at first. I was at the point of ordering a Super PID until I tried cutting a piece of cast acrylic and all the problems have gone away and the engraving is perfect. The cast acrylic is the only...

Re: Reviews, Gripes, ETC.

I just got an Asteroid and I had a Dust Deputy on my V90. I had Probotix send me a hose to fit the dust boot I got with the Asteroid and it connects perfectly to the Dust Deputy and my shop vac. The Dust Deputy works very well and get very little dust/particles in the vac or its filter.

Engraving acrylic

I am just starting to play with acrylic projects and have some questions if anyone has the guidance I need. I have engraved some letters with a 1mm ball nose bit and it worked well on the slowest speed on my 611 and 35 inches feed rate. However when I try to engrave designs with arcs the machine of ...
