BenCutLaser / Need engraving files (RESOLVED)
« on: April 16, 2017, 02:27:00 PM »
Paul and I are in the final stages of testing BCL Engraving. I'd like to test some of the images you folks have an interest in engraving to make sure BCL can handle them.

Please email them to me or attach them to this thread.

And let me know if they should be done in B&W or Gray Scale (GS).


EleksMaker IV Axis / "A Motor" Port Slaving?
« on: April 10, 2017, 10:16:31 AM »
On the 'EleksMaker IV Axis' controller board, does anyone know how to slave a Z stepper motor plugged into the 'A Motor' port, with the primary Z axis stepper motor plugged into the normal 'Z Motor' port?

I want to run and control two Z axis stepper motors.

Is this done with a jumper on the board?

General Discussion / USB Cables and Belts
« on: March 30, 2017, 05:57:59 PM »
I had too many USB cables laying all over my work tables and spare belts hanging up in other I finally put up a central 'hanger' to hang them all on. Believe it or not, I had to order 6 more USB cables from Amazon last night.

As it turned out, today, I had to use two of my spare Nano's. That leaves me with about 4 spares left. Might be time to order some more Nano's as well  :)

The second photo is my new work area...3D printer on the left side and laser machine on the right side. You can see the two window fans that suck the laser smoke out the window. Works very well as I just had the laserBot there doing some lasering yesterday and the smoke exhausted out nicely.

The water bottle is just visible on the right side of the picture...there are two fire extinguishers just to the right of the water bottle...I have never had to use either one...yet...knock on wood...!!!

Folgertech / Slow customer service
« on: March 10, 2017, 08:02:51 PM »
I've had my Folgertech 3D Printer now for about a year. The hot bed stopped working recently and I'm trouble shooting it to find out what failed.

I sent a support email to Folgertech and was disappointed it took 2 days to get a response. I had to ask a question in response to their email and so far, another whole day has passed, without a reply to my reply.

I don't know what has happened to their customer service but it's really slow now. I'd have to think hard and long about buying another major system from them. Having to wait 2 days for a support response is unsat in my book!

They have a phone number, which I called, but it is only a pre-recorded message with no human at the other end. Bad. really bad.
