Hello all! Great stuff you all have going on here. I recently purchased the OX 1500 x 1500. I purchased the all in one simple controller with it as well. I finally got around to making some cuts the other day and it seems to be missing a couple of steps during the process. It went back to the point of origin after the cut was done, and it was about .25" off in bith the X and Y axis’s.
The controller should be set up for my machine, and maybe it is, but am getting missed steps anyhow. I am using CUT3D software and using one of the pre-installed gcode post processors simply called “G Code Inch” I am using a .25" 3 flute, upcut endmill bit. Feed speed @ 100 IPM, with .05 inch pass depth and spindle speed @ 12000 rpm.
Material is Red Oak. I originally tried it at .1 inch pass depth @ 200 IPM, but I the thought the spindle was going to break lose because of the terrible shuddering on some of the passes. I changed to a .25" 2 flute center cutting mill, and dropped the speeds down to the previously mentioned settings, and it seemed to cut much smoother, but the missed steps are still there.
I believe those settings should have been okay to use, but the results tell me otherwise. Are there any settings within GRBL, or Bcnc I should try changing, or do I need to drop my speeds even farther down? Thanks
