Same system but different diameters. Makita clamp is 65mm and (I think), DeWalt 71mm.
Quote: "I have made sure the calibration in the x and y are the same."
Not sure what you mean, but both axes should be calibrated independently -...
Yes, I got a bit desperate for a Makita mount at the time so imported one from China. It proved to be very good quality, well machined and well...
Yeah, sorry, not familiar with sketchucam , so not wise to its capabilities. If you can't save as one file, its no big deal anyway - just run the...
Do you really need to use different diameter endmills on that job - would make it simpler if you stuck with the one bit? Part of my planning is to...
What is the purpose of this?
That could happen if the Z axis is a bit loose between the wheels. I mean, its possible that with the lateral force on the cutter bit in one...
Well, in your example for instance, I would just create a CAD drawing of the whole chair, made up of separate parts including joints etc, then...
Was your original mounting bracket holding the chain too close to the Y plate?
Typical saw tooth pattern you get when your tool is not 90 degrees to the machine bed.
Flexible coupling between motor and leadscrew loose?
Not really sure what he was up to, but any 3 axis CNC can do 3D machining - as long as you have the software for it.
Could be you have a dodgy connection in one of the wires between the motor and driver.
Oh yes, its better alright to calibrate over a longer distance.
If my Y axes are out of sync, I just tweak (turn) one of the Y flexible couplings to correct it - power off and motor disconnected obviously.
can you show us a picture of the tool-path form?
Haha, its the old mm/inch problem. scale it up by 25.4 and its good.
Use Netfabb to scale it. Where is the attached file by the way?
Ignoring homing for a moment, are you still able to jog the X axis left and right using control s/w?
