I have upgraded the X-Carve in my makerspace to 2021 specs. In addition I also fitted a 1.5 kW spindle. Everything is working fine except for tuning the spindle speed during a cut. I can increase and decrease feed rate, but when adjusting the spindle speed I see no change.
Is this normal behaviour of Easel ?
I didn’t know Easel offered dynamic spindle adjustment during a carve?
When carving there is a control for Feed Rate overriding where you can dynamically change the feed rate. When the spindle is controlled via software, there is a similar control for the spindle speed. However the spindle speed does not change with the adjustment. It will display the change up or down, but spindle rpm is not changing.
Spindle is controlled by the 0-10V output.
I have the same issue.
Mark, when doing a carve, on the top right of the toolbar to the left of your progress indicator (pause & stop) are Feed Rate and Spindle Speed with + & - buttons to speed up or slow down.
I use the Feed Rate adjustment quite often - it is a great feature. I do find that even though I can adjust the Spindle Speed, it does not change. If I absolutely need to change the spindle speed, I use UGS instead of Easel.
