When a lot of material is removed (by a roughing pass) I've seen boards bow upward as fresh moisture reaches the newly exposed wood. Knowing that could happen I typically set my allowance to 1/8" or even more just to make sure none of the roughing cuts are left after doing the finish pass. If t...
I'm glad you got it to work. Yes, sometimes a mystery (especially this time of year) can be hard to figure out. I've had static discharge send my CNC somewhere unexpected/unprogrammed so that may have been the criminal responsible. It happened when I was following the bit with my dust collector hose...
You didn't say what CAM software you used, but in vectric's products there is a home Z value that the CNC will move to when every job starts. It is normally set .8" above the material, but if a different value got in there (such as a big negative number) it would force your CNC to move into the...

Thanks for posting. Good use of a CNC for making the parts. Great video. :) You talked about tuning the system. I'm wondering what your options were for tweaking it if it had needed tweaking? Different spring? Different attachment points for the same spring? If you change to a camera that weighs mor...
I've never had honesty trouble with their support. I also had a Nebula suddenly act up with limit errors as well as e-stop warnings. In my case it ultimately was a limit switch that was connected wrong. It is normal to see limit errors if you activate the controller (orange icon) before it is powere...

In the g-code list at the bottom of the LinuxCNC window, you can right click on any line of code and select "run from here". The danger is that your spindle/router won't start automatically from the middle of most files, so you'll need to start it from LinuxCNC before "run from here&q...
