HMM temperature in a cold shop would have to be taken into consideration, good point.

I designed a commemorative wedding plaque for my daughter using 1 line font supplied by cambam, thanks for that to whom it may concern. the epoxy is only .125 deep and just wondering about the drying time on this before i can go on with staining and clear coating?    CB attatched

Merry Chistmas to you to. Set the debounce to 250 yesterday and gave it the old 10 hour test once more with no hiccups, Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa running continually now.

Hey Dave nice to hear from you again. It was set at 2000 then and it still is now. I was thinking about bringing it down in increments of 200 and running this test pattern again. Why is it so important to know the value of  debounce? Just wondering. Oh yes i did have a faulty flourescent light near the mill also that was dealt with, thinking this may have been creating rf spikes when it fired and then died . All the wiring on the control panel is shielded with the drain connected to earth ground with the exception to the 48 volt wiring running from the power supplies to the gecko drives. Thanks for chiming in. Brought the debounce to 1000 and ran it for an hour after that brought the debounce down to 250 and ran it for an hour with no problems. I think next is the 10 hour run and  leave the debounce where it is and see if a problem arises.

Well after running o.k. for a while it started popping up with an unexpected e stop again so i spent hours on the net once more and came up with a list of possibilities. One thing i ran across multiple times was to go into general config and turn off or un tick WATCHDOG TIMER!!. After that i air drilled 10 hours worth of spiral drilling as to get all axis's to moving . It ran the entire ten hour period with no E STOP alert. Hopefully this help's someone else because it can be a crapshoot  guessing about anything that is intermittent. Also another thing that came up multiple times was resetting debounce interval keeping as low as possible but still continually operating properly. And besides all that what the hell does a wathdog do besides gaurding a junkyard.
                                                               MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

I keep a 3/8 x 1 5/8 cel always in the bit arsenal as i do a lot of 2 x 12 stock. I never once thought of using this bit to cut an outside profile to keep the slight bulge that i need.The bulge will mate to a similar bulge that is inverted of course. Hopefully a clean look in the end with no gaps or pertrusion. In my mind i just had to use a 3d mop and couldn't see past that. An oversight of course. I had a brother that used to tell me don't overlook the obvious all the time. I have not used the file cleaner yet but it looks like i need to.Thanks for the help and i am sure i will have questions and since you created the plugin you know who's going to get the questions.

Thanks a lot Dave or is that Mr. Benson, will have a look at this. Why did you have to run it thru a file cleaner, not connected properly  or overlaps or polyline 10 was at fault ?
9  Support / CamBam help (General usage) / Side profile or 3d MOp on: November 14, 2019, 17:11:32 pm
Should i use a side profile or a 3d machining operation on polylines 39 and 41 ? I have tried using a 3d MOp and came up with less than desirable results. I have extruded 1.5 inches the width of the stock and rotated on the  X at 90 degrees and inverted face when needed and aligned the Y at 0 and the z from the bottom at -.875 the thickness of stock .I then ran it on camotics the results are just not a representation of the polyline. Since the polyline has a slight bulge  i think that using a side profile is prohibited? Help me make a choice please and then if you can explain to me what i'm missing or have done wrong. As always thanks for the help! Oh yes here's the cb. files There is a downward hook on the top of the stock with the mops file that is undesirable. Help i need a teacher and oh yes i'm holding my hand up! HAHA

Thanks David , time to give this a second look.

Ok that's all very helpful but how do i setup a mop to accomplish this slight bulge. I don't think that i can setup a 2d operation and keep this slight bulge? Must it be a 3d mop and what is the procedure for setting this up? Thanks thusfar!

There is a file attached and polyline 16  which is in the center support attachment and the profile i need, it's not quite a straight line it has a slight bulge to it and i would like to be as accurate as possible because it butts up to another part. This is part of a garden bench project i'm working on . The Crest Rail file may bring some clarity as to how this fit's into the project. Really nice looking bench!! Thanks for any and all help.      I can feel it in my bones some one is going to to make me look like i missed something obvious.

The Gecko 201 x's is what's on the mill with 48 volt power supply's. Manufacturer's can recommend Motor size's for moving loads,got that . But they can't determine the cutting load. A few factor's come into play, depth of cut, sharpness of bit,type of material among quite a few other's, no doubt.The user has to have enough insight look at and measure what he has cut and make MOp adjustment's to compensate for short comings of the mill. Now where is that winning lotto ticket anyway, daddy needs a new set of CLEARPATH'S.  
Thanks for all the food for thought.

In about a week the new part's will be in i will chime in after installing them. I guess we will see how long this will last.

Well i thought i was going to order a week ago but  didn't, rechecked the numbers and came up with something in stock and i used their online calculator with some coaching and success was finally reached ! YEA! John is the fellows name at SDP/SI that heads up the engeneering phone calls. I was told that with my selection that torque would increase while speed will suffer. I really have no interest in doing 1000 IPM for rapids.Though i do need the additional torque.If for some reason someone else has pulled the silly mistake that i have iv'e got pulley and belt numbers in this post. This will double the torque!!  Pulley number is  A 6A53-040DF0908 and belt number will be A36R53M098090 this belt is a HTD series and a little better than the GT2 series.And it is in stock. And yes this is a CNCROUTERPARTS 4848 CNCRouter setup.I will post back in a week or so and inform you of results . Hopefully i'll get back to producing chips instead of dust and the bit life is what is to be expected. Hope this helps someone else out besides myself.Thanks for all of the discussion on this subject from everyone that chimed in! OH yes this is for the 1/4" shaft 20 tooth original pulley NOT the 3/8" shaft!!!!!!!!!!!
