  • This is a variation of the box that comes with the Shapeoko but doesn’t have the hole in the back for the heat sink and the holes in the top for all the stepper wires.

    Commenting only on the Shapeoko/Stepoko version. Holes in the top allow sawdust to enter the box and drop into the wiring terminals. Lack of a transparent cover means you can’t see the dozen or so indicator LEDs on the Stepoko. Not a good design for the CNC application.

  • Ok the video and the directions talk about “grbl settings” to reverse the axis movement. I don’t see any specific directions or command to do this. Could somebody reply with the procedure to reverse the direct of travel on the various axis'?

    Thanks.

  • I think I’m going to try the Python version mentioned above. The version in the article is getting a few check-ins per hour by quite a few different authors–a little concerned about stability. May come back to it later if things settle down a little

  • So has anybody had this successfully build? I’ve tried twice and no joy. The thing is huge so not sure how much I want dive into it.

  • Anybody seen issues with USB3? I noticed it wasn’t charging on my new computer (red light not on) but when I moved it to my original machine with USB2 it worked fine. Front USB on both machines (wired directly to the MB).
