Re: Headscratcher for me?

That's a great photo, Rando. Very impressive what you've managed with the Shark. Next Wave ought to include your results in their promotional materials! Thanks, Kayvon! You're too kind :) In some sense, they have. While the HD2+/3 generation was their lead model, they featured a bunch of my aluminu...

Started to hog in and suc...

Re: Ready2control software ?

WBill: R2C, is essentially optional. You can get the full machine functionality by transferring toolpaths (.tap files) onto a USB flash drive, then plugging that into the pendant. Some prefer a computer user interface, others feel perfectly fine using only the pendant. Some use both. However, there ...

Re: Shark sd110

Well, definitely check that the pendant thinks it is on the correct machine. This is apparently a commonly-lost setting in the system, unfortunately.

Re: Shark sd110

I wonder if the pendant's model number is possibly incorrect, and it thinks it's actually a different size of CNC machine? Check out this article on NWA's web site. Though....it doesn't seem to include an SD110 in the list. https://nextwaveautomation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4409622842779-Deter...

Shark HD movement issues

Brock: I should add that some of what you're describing--namely the reversing of direction--sounds like it might be either broken wires, or maybe even loose connections inside the controller box. IIRC, the driver modules are mounted to a heatsink plate, but are not screwed into the main controller b...

Along the length of the gantry? Or along the length of the bed? Most people have it as along the length of...
