I can add the information about exporting from Easel if you think that could be helpful. Perhaps Information about different programs could go on subpages? Jon (talk) 12:03, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

It probably needs to go on it’s own Easel page to be like Fusion 360 is. And then this page links to both under a ‘Generating GCode’ section Danspencer101 (talk) 13:17, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Set G54 Through MDI Mode

Moved this off the main page as its not a user friendly way to operate LinuxCNC. --Danspencer101 (talk) 15:18, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

To set it,

  1. Enter Manual Jogging mode by pressing the appropriate button on the right hand side or pressing F3 on the keyboard.
  2. Use the control arrows to move the gantry so that the centre of the tool is sitting on the point where (X,Y,Z) is (0,0,0) on your CAD model.
  3. Make a note of the Abs readings on the DRO (Green text on the top right)
  4. Open the MDI mode of GMOCCAPY program by pressing the appropriate button on the right hand side or pressing F5.
  5. Set G54 by running the following command
  G10 L2 P1 X??? Y??? Z???
  Where ??? are the coordinates you noted down in step 3.
Could be useful for a subpage, or not really? Jon (talk) 18:46, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Potential latency boostS for new pc?


We have a 4 core CPU in the new PC. Theres some stuff on this page about limiting the CPU cores resulting in far better latency:

I would try it but don't have edit access to the GRUB file in /etc/default/ --Danspencer101 (talk) 22:27, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Discrete GPU

Post #418 on this forum: Link mentions that adding a HD6450 GPU to his J3455 based system massively decreased the latency. His results:
