    The indexer can be used as a fancy, rotating, holddown so maybe it has more use than you think!

    3D print!


    (Too short so I'll add some stuff so it's long enough to pass through the filter. That should do.)

    Unless that file gets corrupted. That's why I like the screenshot thing. I have it on a completely different system (my phone) and I can look at it while paging through the settings.

    That is one big machine! From what I've seen as asking prices on this forum, you're looking at about 50% depreciation at least, probably more since the machine is 10+ years old. You will probably...

    I've had the corrupt settings problem happen to me once since 2013. I traced it back to a power failure while the computer was sleeping. Luckily, I did screenshots of all the settings pages because...

    I think one probable reason why these configuration files get corrupted is from shutting down a computer by putting it to sleep, then while it's asleep, the power fails or the computer resets itself...

    Rocco - I had the same opinion when I bought mine back in 2013. I've had virtually no problems that weren't caused by fluctuations in the actual power so I'm a happy camper.

    Rocco - Curious why you selected Shopbot over other manufacturers. Don't see many new SB owners on this forum anymore.

    Can you say "Control system"? The current SB offering looks like (and is) a throwback to 2000 Visual Basic. The SB machine code is non-standard (G-Code is the standard). The USB interface is weak and...

    Shopbot is on the path towards eventual dissolution. They stopped innovating years ago and now are essentially eating their seed corn. Unless Shopbot makes a major investment in new technology and...

    Please also note that this forum is running http: (not secure) instead of the now defacto https: (secure). Seems like someone is just not keeping up with the times.

    I've had so much success with PLA that I haven't tried anything else. At this point, I'm kind of afraid to change anything since it works so perfectly well. I ordered the XL with two extruder tools...

    If you're looking for an end mill that will cut that deep, you'll probably be looking a half inch diameter with an six inch length.
