Facebook User's group

Has anyone put up a facebook group for Buildbotics users yet? Would anyone else than me be interested in one? I follow a few over various machines and suppliers. The onefinity user group is awesome, lots of good info and knowledge shared outside of the forum. Since they're powered by the BB control ...

Re: Version 1.0.0 Released

Have got the machine at work updated and dialed in with some new macros buttons. Basic commands like Park, Go To Home, Probe, etc. put this machine right on par with our other routers now making it easier for all operators to use. I can't wait to get home and update the machine there too. Great job ...

bor 454 DIY

I've been working for months to finish a DIY plan set for my new build and wanted to share. This mechanical frame is designed using mostly OpenBuilds components/hardware with other easy to source parts.

"Go To Home" button work around

Just wanted to share a tidbit that we discovered, and is a real time saver in the shop.

Re: Slaved axis Lag

*Issue resolved* Had extra pairs of eyes this morning helping to work out why this is happening. It appears that the slaved motor keeps moving a split second longer than the other when the switch is triggered. A pretty simple work around was to add a hard stop on the slaved side, Ran a dozen or so h...
