Just curious if anyone has made a CAD model of one of these machines?

General Discussion / Looking for g-code editor

Any of you know of a good free g-code editor? I've found a few, but they didn't seem all that good.

I just found and installed NCPlot. It takes stick font text and generates the g-code.  Seems pretty nice and very simple to use. The g-code it generates will need some modification to work with our lasers, but so far I like the program. Also it's free!

I finally found time to do a bit of engraving! Nothing fancy but I had fun.

T2 Engraving / edit gcode
« on: May 06, 2016, 06:25:27 AM »
Is there any way to manually edit the gcode in T2? I was just wondering. I know there are plenty of other programs for it.

 I was also wondering what all commands are supported.

This is a free program from the Turbocad website. Works great for creating dxf files.

Trouble Shooting / Strange problem (solved)
« on: May 02, 2016, 05:47:59 PM »
Yesterday I noticed the x axis was running slower and not as far as it should for a given command.

Now when I try to jog either axis they don't move. The steppers just make a lot of noise.

They move when running a program until near the end of the program. Then all the motors just sit there and make a lot of noise until I hit the stop button.

I'm running T2Laser with default settings. Anyone have any advice?

General Discussion / Spare parts

What are the most common parts to wear out on these machines?

 I got a 500mw A5 from Gear Best and it just dawned on me that I should have some spare parts on hand.

While I wait for my laser engraver to arrive I decided to look for a cheap computer I could use just for it.

What do you guys think of this one?   http://us-store.acer.com/aspire-one-ao1-131-c620-cloudbook
