Hi,
Please post latest stable entry level versions of eagle/pcb-gcode versions for mac, now that I have a functional CNC mill ??
thx

New Machine #migration

keith3125
 

Trying to setup PCBGCODE on a new machine (Windows 10). Got far enough to settings page but can't size the window to see/reach the 'accept' button.
Closed it down and just tried 'run' on a board got message: Windows cannot find 'javaw.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. Closed that and get : Error calling ShellExecuteEx0

Any ideas?

Terrific!   Where do I get it, can you upload files on here?


Re: Optimizer not working any more #pcbgcode #eagle

But this would require changing the control hardware on my mill.  I am not that desperate yet!

Can I download a new copy?  I couldn't find a download source.

Re: Can't open 'c:\storage.nv' permission denied #pcbgcode

Mine worked just fine in win10 as "C:\EAGLE-9.3.0" after i elevated all permissions for that folder (including subfolders).
But i like the solution of putting the files in server and i think i will go for it, thanks Chipteck.

I liked idea of running same bit a second time.  I'm going to try that.

thanks for your thoughts.

Can you generate the residual areas where the bit of 0.70 does not arrive (angles, sectors where should bit 0.7 be cut because it invades another track) that should be done by pocket operation for copper cleaning? I have managed to solve it with bcnc, but it is not a practical solution,

Made a schematic and then tried the board. Gave autoroute a go and got a reasonable board.

Problem is there are areas I have made errors on both the board and schematic. Trying to undo and go back I nowe have a error stating the changes on either will not update the other. e.g. changes on the schematic will not be shown on the board.

Any ideas how to fix this or do I start from scratch?
No, but you will need to go back and try to match the version of the
board file that doesn't have your changes.

In Eagle, you cannot change the board without changing the schematic
and vice versa.

At some point, you had a board or schematic file open without the
corresponding other file. This gives Eagle severe heartburn (and
then.... you).

Eagle keeps backup files of both schematic and board, so you can try
to match them up. If the board wasn't too complicated, you can lay it
out again by moving all the .brd or .br# files into a separate folder
where Eagle can't find it (note that you're not destroying
information, just making it invisible).

Then create a board and go from there.

otherwise, you will have to try to match things up.

In my version (7.x) there's a big nasty yellow and black striped
banner telling you that changes in one will not be reflected in the
other when both files are not open.

In bcnc there is a new complement (I do not know if it is already available) to clean the traces of pcb with laser (remove black paint for acid later) which I have helped with my small contribution

Yes, that’s the idea. I got tired of cleaning the grooves myself.

HI Dan,

If I want to do steps, I assume I would need to increase trace
separation in Eagle and then set the step in pcbgcode.  If this is
approximately right, I'll go back to the manual and try it.

my boards, except for one, are single sided with no vias. they
have a number pf dip sockets and traces must pass between pins and
there isn't a lot of space there - .010 pin separation and I like
to use the long pads; tight.

what do you think?

What step size do you use and what cutter diameter?
I’ve found if I use a step of >=50% the cutter foam, I get
these “leftovers”, but, if I set a step of 30-40%, it tends to
be clean. Takes longer, of course.

Hi Bruce,
If its any help this is what I have done
in bCNC for laser work:
I have added 4 user defined buttons on
the control tab:-
            Laser mode on;            
              $32=1
           
Laser mode off;                    
      $32=0
Laser constant power mode;       M3 (Laser only switches on
during G1, G2, G3 off during G0)
Laser dynamic power mode;       M4 (Laser power varies with
feed rate automatically)
I set the Z to zero when generating the
G-Code.  Then before I start the job,
I just press the laser mode on button followed by the laser
mode I want to use.  The software
takes it from there.  Don’t forget
to select laser mode off when you’re finished as it is
stored in the Arduino and will still be active the next time
you use it. 
Happy
lazing,
Marcus
