I have connected the CNC to Easel, however, whatever I produce in Easel, when cutting it shrinks to around 30% of the original size, has anyone come across this problem, if so what was the workaround???
MM to Inches?
If I create in mm’s it still shrinks
Check your steps. Tell it to go 100mm, does it go 100mm or 30mm?
Use the calculator by Phil and re-calibrate your steps/mm
Hi, I looked at the site and made the changes it suggested and it made no difference to the scale, when I cut a 100 mm line it only cuts 31.5 mm on the wood.How do I make sure the settings are correct?
Restart controller board after changing the step/mm setting, you could also re-enter $$ to see if the new value is properly received.
Ok, so the X axis is correct, what about the Y, how do I adjust the settings for that?
It appears squashed when cutting.
In the exact same manner as X, only the GRBL setting is now $101=xxx instead of $100=xxx.
Unless I am missing something, you’re using Woodpecker CNC not X Carve or Inventables CNC. If so, Easel was made for Inventable’s CNC, wouldn’t there be difference in translation as what’s called “Post Processor”.
It depends, I don’t know the Woodpecker but have an Arduino-GRBL based CNC myself which operate just fine with standard Easel gcode files / straight from Easel.
It is an Arduino based system, I now have the sizing cutting correct. I just need to figure out how to level the aluminium bed.
Add a MDF spoil board on top and skim that
I have a generic 3018 with GRBL and wonder what settings you used to get it to talk to Easel!!!
Hi! i saw your easel problem with the 3018CNC. What did you do for solve it? Thanks
