What's weird about it? Hard to tell since the picture is so big.

I let win10 update and it changed my PCID. I don't think anyone has a clue what actually causes it.

Won't work.

I am sure it will.

The difference is additive versus subtractive machining.

Not sure that has anything to do with bed leveling or plasma top of material sensing.

I think you may need to explain your answer in a bit more detail.


Go ahead and try it.

The bit on the CNC would be cutting on an angle whereas the extruder on a printer places layers down so the angle doesn't make enough of a difference to matter.

The lcd screen is a plug-in so no need for soldering.

Try with the charge pump off.

Are you using the same license as before the upgrade?
You may need to generate a new one.

Ummm, it sounds like your machine is running in G21 (milimeters) mode.  Since you said your program is preparing the G-code in inches, then this is most likely the issue.  Make sure there is a G20 at the beginning of the g-code file and it should work out ok.  It it's still off, then tune the motors.

If the program is preparing the Gcode in inches.... there will be a G20,

If you move one axis 1", does it actually move 1"?

Might have to tune motors.
