large cnc router cutting

We started using the large router this past week. Things were going well until we discovered that our computer has some pulse interference. Oh well. We'll get it optimized or switched over and hopefully we'll be in business again.

So... Jealous...!

Can't wait to stop by the lab again to see all the new cool toys. What sort of interference are you getting? Long ago when setting up my Taig, I was getting occasional random steps when cutting, and eventually found that it was due to motor noise - grounding the motor shell eliminated all interference.

yeah, I can't wait for you to come up.

I'm not sure what's causing the noise. I didn't optimize Windows, so I assumed that was the cause as the driver test looks fine. I'll check out the motor noise though and see if that's it.

I knew we were going to have some teething problems with this thing though.
