Re: Firmware Installation Problem

Sounds like a Windows problem. What's the exact message? Do you have a screenshot?

Re: Etching Acrylic

The inside quick engrave is perfectly straight. The cutout... at least, I think it's a cutout... it's hard to photograph clear acrylic... the cutout you're pointing to doesn't get all the way in the corner because your bit will not fit any further into the crevice without cutting through the lines. ...

Re: Programming

It pretty much depends on the software you have, assuming you mean the g-code generation. You can generate this all by hand if you want, but you shouldn't. Many (most?) Shark owners have some version of Vectric's software, which is absolutely fantastic stuff. Very easy to learn as CAD software goes ...

Re: My Home location Keeps changing Shark 520 with V-Carve

I've had that happen, too. When the machine tries to go beyond its work envelope, it physically hits against the end and the controller believes the router has continued to move when, in reality, the machine was obviously stuck there. All subsequent moves are offset by that amount and your workpiece...

Re: SHARK-SD100

I have the same model Bob does, except mine is black.

The only real difference between ours and the one you're looking at is the bed size. That's the main difference in all the Shark models, actually.

Re: Flyball Boxes on HD 520

Beautiful. I would never have guessed baltic ply was used by looking at it. Automotive filler and paint? I'll have to try that.

Re: Touch plate holder!

I always love combining fabrications from different machines (CNC, laser cutter, 3d printer). It's amazing what you can build at home these days.

Great application for this. Nice silver color, too.

Re: Other Lasers

I was looking for a 10-20 watt. Want to cut 1/inch wood and some metals. looking to engrave glass too. I'm hoping "1/ inch wood" really means "1/4 inch wood", otherwise you're going to be sorely disappointed with most any laser you'll buy. You'll need a >40W laser to effectively cut through 1/4" wo...
