      Hi Mark, where can I find the following settings ($0, $1, $110, $120, micro-stepping ratio and current) for X rail C-Beam Linear Actuator Bundle 1000mm with Nema 23 stepper driven by CNC xPRO V2 CONTROLLER? It seems that no matter what I use, I get very loud action and vibration on the actuator movements.

        Hello @efis Please see the postings of the grbl settings others have shared on the discussion page as well as the settings in the misc folder of the download page. Other then this I would (power off) and triple check your wiring) and maybe adjust your feedrate speeds from the software you are making the code with it may need to go up or down a bit to remove any resonance.

      Mark, I'm pretty new to OpenBuilds, but I have placed a >$400.00 order and received a large portion of the v-slot rail incorrectly. The order and packing slip are correctly marked, but the fulfilled part is incorrect, someone marked it by mistake. Any chance you can help? Also, thanks SO much for the parts, community, and support. this is an awesome place to learn and share. Much appreciated.

        Hello @giardinm Thank you for your kind words.
        We apologize for this order mistake and ask that you contact the Part Store Team so that they can work this out for you. [email protected] (so they will have your information) I also will look into this for you and see what can be done asap so that you can continue your build. Thank you

        Mark hate to be a pain, but I received someone else's order today instead of mine. There was a mix up on one digit in the orders. Can you help again? 2 out of 3 orders have been wrong.

      Hi Mark, I love your information and the videos!! I am watching one on YouTube for the C-Beam assembly and I find the new format with the GoPro camera really hard to watch as the camera distorts the picture and the constant movement is hard to watch. Maybe I am the only one who finds it difficult to watch?? Just thought I would let you know! Keep up the great work!! Thanks!!
      1. Mark Carew

        Thanks for the feedback @crnrstndes we should be able to remove the distortion

      Hi Mark,
      I need to convert a Sketchup drawing to a .stp (STEP) file format. Do you know of a easy way to get this done? What steps (pardon the pun) would you use?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi there. I recently purchased a cnc router based on the OX CNC machine designed by Mark Carew. This is my first cnc machine. I'm lost with the electronics. I'm not an electronics person. I have the CNC XPro V2 controller. What other hardware do I need with the XPRO V2 to make my router work? Diagrams and schematics will be well appreciated.

      Are there any coupon codes running on the parts store at the moment or in the next week? I'm thinking of buying a few hundred dollars worth of parts and getting them shipped to new zealand so any discount would be great, thanks.

      Hi there Mark!
      I'm planing to build a CNC router with the c-beam on all axes and the CNC xpro v2 controller board.But I'm concerned about the speeds. Can it handle 3000 mm/min without overheating the stepper motors or the drivers on the CNC xpro?
      1. Mark Carew
        Mark Carew
        I would say 1500 would be top (and really no reason to go any faster for a cnc router) this would also be rapids. You may be able to go faster with a 24V PSU but I have not tried this. If you go too fast you can also run into lead screw whipping no the long screws.

      Thanks again Dexter for the feedback.The models are included in the download if you need to pull more measurement then shown in the drawings

      A dimension is missing on the CB-End Cap for the upper M5 screws that screw into the CB. From the CB drawing it looks that this should be 10mm. If you look at the left side of the CB-End Cap drawing it's obvious the dimension is missing. Not picking on your work, I just am in the habit of measuring once, cutting twice...
