I designed a stool in Fusion 360. I’m attempting to cut out the top.
I used 2 2D Contour’s. The first for the middle slot to mount the legs.
The second for the outside edge to actually cut it out.
It appears that 3/4 of the way through the first cut the router just
stops. I’ve tried using the LCD Smart controller and repetier. In repetier
it says “Job Killed” or something like that. With the controller, It almost
seems to reset.
I’ve had this happen with things I’ve made with EstlCam too.
Any sort of pointing me in the right direction is appreciated.February 9, 2017 at 9:20 pm #27106
I tried to post the .f3d file and the gcode but its telling me I cant
for security reasons.February 9, 2017 at 10:18 pm #27109
Dui, ni shuo de duiParticipant
Post it in a .zip fileFebruary 10, 2017 at 7:40 am #27127
-MPCNC Version C
-Full Graphic LCD Smart Controller
-X and Y stepper voltages set to .68v and z set to .7v
Gcode and .f3d file are in the .zip file.
What happens to an MPCNC if your power supply is inadequate? If at any point
the MPCNC tries to draw more current then allowed by the supply, what happens?
I’m using a 4 Amp power supply and have had things cut out before
but most things fail to cut. It doesn’t seem to matter if I use EstlCam or
Fusion 360 to create the code or If I use Repetier Plugged into the stack or
just the smart controller to execute the code. Now with that said, I can’t
guarantee that my tool paths/code is right to begin with.

I watched my smart controller/ramps board this time. The ramps board literally shuts off and turns back on, same thing with the controller.February 10, 2017 at 11:15 am #27144
Did it shut off in the exact same spot? That would indicate a gcode related error. If it was a different place we need to look elsewhere.
What are you using for your rapid speeds, that seems to be the issue most people are having these days (thank goodness).February 10, 2017 at 11:21 am #27146
Ryan, where would I find my rapid speed in fusion? What would it be labeled?
It appears to be the same spot. I’m running it again to be certain.
You don’t think this is thermal shutdown, do you?February 10, 2017 at 11:26 am #27147
You haven’t given any information to make any guesses on thermal issues but I doubt it they do not shut down the system they just stop moving the drivers.
In fusion you rapids are set in you post processor and in your tool settings. How fast are you asking it to move at any given time. Cut speeds, plunge speeds, retract speeds, rapids. If you repeatedly ask it to move too fast the processor will reset the whole system. We aren’t using RC8 because it is a little more susceptible to this at the moment, but it can happen in RC7 if you are wayyyy off.February 10, 2017 at 11:40 am #27149
Ran it again.
On cut 1 of 2 (the circle) it makes multiple passes (maybe 4). Raises the tool and drops it back down to then perform another pass and stops. When it stops, the red led on my ramps board shuts off and the controller starts the load screen (Vicious logo > Marlin firmware screen> controller interface)

I’m using the post process file for fusion 360 by the way.February 10, 2017 at 11:45 am #27152
Is it stopping in the exact same place, I don’t know where it stopped before?
You speeds look okay.
Hardware, are you using my stuff or your own? If it’s your own spare no details.February 10, 2017 at 11:54 am #27153
Stops same spot.
My own stuff.

Well if it is the exact same spot, try a new gcode.
Are your drivers set at .7v or less or if they are higher do you have active cooling on them?February 10, 2017 at 11:58 am #27155
I have a 40mm high output fan on the side of the stack. All drivers are set at.7v or lower.
Multiple gcode made by fusion and estlcam stop mid cut.February 10, 2017 at 12:01 pm #27156
okay, then run the gcode with your spindle off.February 10, 2017 at 12:03 pm #27157
When I reattempted it a few minutes ago. I brought the z point high before starting and ran it with the spindle off.. same thing.February 10, 2017 at 12:05 pm #27158
Could 4 amps of power not be enough and that’s causing the ramps board to restart?February 10, 2017 at 12:08 pm #27159
If it is a crappy 4A, and not really 4A, like most cheap power supplies are. It should be enough but I recommend at least 5A in the instructions. It took a long time for me t find a reputable power supply that isn’t severely over spec’d.
Does your power brick get really hot?
Does my test gcode run fine and just not your gcode?February 10, 2017 at 12:12 pm #27160
Power supply is cold. Where do I find your gcode? The one from your lcd controller?February 10, 2017 at 12:17 pm #27161

I’m starving, headed out to lunch be back in an hour or so.February 10, 2017 at 2:20 pm #27165
How was lunch?
I ran your left.gcode. ran right through at 15my and 41s.
Would it be too much to ask for you to run mine and see what happens?
The error happens around the 8 minute mark.February 10, 2017 at 2:22 pm #27166
I took my little tiny fpv quad out for the first time on the lunch break…..that is a new experience for sure!
Ha, I didn’t think to run your code…duh, brain fart. I’ll load it up.February 10, 2017 at 2:25 pm #27168
This might sound stupid.. but when I run your code, the red led on my ramps doesn’t turn on.. but when I run mine, it does.February 10, 2017 at 2:39 pm #27169
Apparently that’s LED3 and its associated with a fan. Your gcode did not turn the fan on, mine however does. On my smart controller, it says the fan is at 100% when I run my code. Nothing for yours.February 10, 2017 at 2:42 pm #27170
The new post processor does not have the fan on by defualt, you should upgrade we all made changes too it the new ones are much better. v9 and v10.February 10, 2017 at 2:43 pm #27171
So I think that is the issue you are using v6 of the postprocessor the rapids are built in and way too high.February 10, 2017 at 2:44 pm #27172
So v10 is current?February 10, 2017 at 2:45 pm #27173
v10 is, but I have only tested v9 and am not 100% sure what was changed in v10February 10, 2017 at 4:42 pm #27175
I’ll use v9 then. Thanks for helping me out with this Ryan. I’ll have to
put it to the test tomorrow just to be sure but it makes sense as to why
your .gcode worked and mine was useless.
I just wonder what aspect of this made the ramps board restart.February 10, 2017 at 4:48 pm #27176
It is the Z axis rapid movements speeds, to many steps/second for our arduino processor. The previous post processors did not take this in to account.
