The ShopBot is a Gantry CNC machine that can cut materials up to 4x8 feet in size and up to 6 inches in thickness. It is primarily good at cutting woods, including plywood and MDF. It can also V-carve (like signs) and drill.
We have the Makerspace version of VCarve, which allows you to download the trial version of VCarve and work on your designs from home, then save the file for use at the MakerSpace. More information can be found here.
To use this feature, download the trial version (You must use V11 for now, as V11.5 Makerspace edition has not yet been released) and then put the following code in the Makerspace ID field in Help -> About:
Issue: X/Y Axis will not zero

- Try zeroing the XY. You can also do some Move/ Jog tests and then use a tape measure to measure the accuracy to see that it has been zeroed.
Issue: Move/Jog on X & Y Axes are slow, jerky and stuttering
In the ShopBot 3 Software, double check to make sure the numbers in the two “Move” fields read ‘3’ and ‘2’. In the “Jog” field make sure the numbers read ‘4’ and ‘3’.
