You can pause the probing, but while paused, you can't raise the Z axis. Error 103 is a file error. Just save the file once, per session.. How to pause and lift up the z axis(when probing and
cutting)--- i got a (i/o error 103 do you know what
2. How can you save a partially completed probe?
No, you can't save a partially probed job. It must finish to balance the 3d surface data.
Like the words say, pausing doesn't stop the file3. What is the difference between Pausing and E-stop?
4. Also why do i sometimes get a overtravel warning and have to reset the limit(meaning disable then enable it)
When you run to the end of an axis you will get overtravel ! Disable the limit switches, jog it oout of overtravel (look at indicators on bottom of StarCNC screen) and then re-enable limit switches.
If its a complex 3d shhape, maybe hot melt glue to a board, or Double sided tape for flat objects5. What is the best way to probe(aka set up the
machine, ex: what is the best type of tape to use)???
7. What is the best way to hook up a vaccumm?
10. What are some things that you should'nt do with the machine aka can u put a plastic box on it and have a vaccumm connected so that the dirt does not travel everywhere????....
Do you have the dust pickup like in the picture on larkencnc.com ?
I make 2 types, a plastic vacu-formed one and a brush type.
Is this in the slice menu ? Use the auto_ adjust to origin command in surfer to position the z top to zero.6. The z lower level and lower z level???? in the 3d surfer program are not the same thing??? or do you define how much you want to do in one pass (two or more).
It can run all night, but don't have the sample resolution too small. It just makes huge data files. Go between 0.020" - 0.100" from small to large objects. The probe accuracy is only 0.01" .8. Can you leave it alone probing all night...or is there a limit to how long you can leave it on????
best to use a vacuum cleaner instead of compressed air to clean the table.9. What is the best way to clean the machine(do you unplug it) what maintenance does it require...and what filter should we install????
If the delrin nuts on the lead screws squeek, use graphite spray on the leadscrews.
They require very little maintanance, unless you are cutting very dusty material like MDF. Then you may need to clean the linear bearings about once a year.
