I like using carbide motion for my controller and this works flawlessly when zeroing the x, y, and z axis on my Shapeoko 3XXL. Ambulance scooped me up, couple days of bed rest, no serious damage done. I’m still waiting for one of the forum members to stick one of those fancy Kress routers with an ATC (see Stepcraft) on their shapeoko and make it work with grbl. I do not use Carbide3D software at all because Estlcam is so flawless and the results of drawing only in sketchup and cutting with Estlcam has kept me from needing any of the high end programs although I’ve not gotten into 3d sculpting yet. What im looking for is something similar to mach3 thats user friendly and can run on my pc. the probe dimensions, that match Carbide 3D's probe, or the Z limits that match a stock Z-axis). Personally I think bCNC is a bit better and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a different G-code sender for now. The Standard Elektik Lorenz stock company (SEL) from Stuttgart, Germany, took over Dunkermotoren in 1969. The Carbide 3D Shapeoko BitSetter is an automatic tool offset probe for your Shapeoko that makes it easy to run jobs using multiple tools without the need to stop and re-zero manually. The touch off options with alum. If you poke around the grbl issue board you can find some detailed reports where GRBL performance was put head to head against Mach3 (or maybe LinuxCNC?).

The big thing is, it depends on the Arduino to use the hard real-time stuff — that’s why a laptop works — this also means that one can get into a situation where the computer running the comm / control app gets bogged down, the buffer runs out, and the machine slows down or even stops waiting for the next command (though this doesn’t happen much w/ Grbl 0.9 and later and their 115200 standard comm speed). This alternative CNC Touch Probe can be used with Shapeoko 3 that use Carbide Motion. GRBL AIO by 3d tek Check out the Onefinity CNC Machine Here:https://www.onefinitycnc.comI created this video series aimed at the true beginner to hobby CNC's. Documentation site for Carbide 3D.

Alternative Controllers Instead of using an Arduino microcontroller, Arduino stepper shield, and Pololu A4988 Stepper Drivers (or an Arduino and a GrblShield), you might instead select an all-in-one controller board or other control system or re-purpose a general-purpose computer. Carbide Create is downloaded software that's run from your own machine, it’s not cloud software that can be insecure and unavailable. “I moved to Universal G-Code Sender, and never looked back”, Once you discover the flexibility of any of the alternatives…, I’ll have to check them out - looking for tool changes with re-zeroing Z. thanks for the suggestions, which post do you use for universal gcode sender from fusion. Back on topic, I may try Estlcam one day, but for now I have tried both UGS and bCNC recently. I have used vectric aspire and fusion 360 with the carbide nomad. But I often don’t do tool changes but use wcs coordinates based on the machine zero and run separate programs each time for each tool until I can string them all together if I need to run multiples of the same part. Bummer Seller- I made sure my shapeoko XXL grbl software was the latest and greatest and I also made sure my Carbide Motion was up to date. Carbide Create is the 2.5D CAD/CAM program from Carbide3D and is dsigned to work hand in hand with Carbide Motion. Should be the same as for any other G-Code sender: @rayfleck, @neilferreri has written several macros for CNCjs that are floating around the forums here, you might check them out. It is helpful to clamp this piece in place once you have it aligned. I’m going on 62 and knowing how to fall is the trick. But I have used Estlcam and absolutely love it.

I tried using Universal Gcode Sender back in the day and a few others but none of them could handle my huge CNC programs. MANY alternative It has setup presets for the Shapeoko so installing is quick. Fusion 360 works well. I am not a stranger to hurricanes, we call them tropical cyclones here in Australia - but 5 in the one area - that’s too much. Im creating in autocad, then fusion (I know autocad a lot better for 3d modeling) and have generating toolpaths down (I think) but getting this out into the real world, with tool changes and the required re-zero is where I hit my personal stops. Launch Carbide Create and choose a stock size with reasonable proportions for your monitor and which is comfortably larger than all the parts involved: It is probably also helpful to go into Document Background | Edit and set the grid spacing to and integral value of the box dimensions --- 0.125" should be fine enough: i still use carbide motion. http://estlcam.com If so are you still happy with it?
