Can you cut a thin 3/32" carbon fiber sheet on a K40? Maybe with multiple passes? Have a possible project from a friend if it is.

Figured I would share and see if anyone wanted the STL. I made a quick bracket that rotates the C3D so the SD card faces up. As I run jobs directly from the card using a GLCD.

Anyone have experience cutting Delrin or Acetal Copolymer sheets on a K40? Curious if I can use the same power/speed settings as cutting acrylic.

I really like the material. Just haven't tried cutting it on my K40 yet. Last year I was just using the preset settings on a Universal 60w.

Anyone add the GLCD External SD Card settings to their config file? Any issues? Will I be able to cut with a loaded LW file on it?

It wasn't included in the default C3D config so just want to make sure there wasn't a reason.

I've been using this for a while. Curious if i'm the only one.

It's a remote on/off switch used for Halloween or Christmas lights. I have my water pump, exhaust fan, and K40 plugged up through a surge protector to it. Easy way to make sure everything is on at the same time. Plus taking the remote away makes it a little harder for someone else to turn on my machine (kids).

Anyone else use Adobe Illustrator? I have some existing work i was trying to engrave and cut. So I converted the engraving layer to BMP and cut to SVG.

I'm having some trouble with the new setup. See the photo below. That weird "text" is supposed to be an engraved URL into a sheet of acrylic. First I tried 300 dpi BMP and then tried 150. Is there a setting I forgot or maybe something in the smoothie config?

FYI, it's cutting the SVG file okay.

Before you ask, yes I was engraving this same part without issue with the original board.

Package arrived today. Very excited to get up and running. GUYS, don't forget to backup that config file on the SD card before you go off playing!

Quick question. Are the steppers setup or do I need to adjust the pots?

Thanks for including that older style GLCD connector for me. Hate that my connectors are backwards on my display. Guess that's what I get for buying a clone.

Getting there. New adjustable head, mounting bracket, mirrors, air assist, drag chain, ventilation and honeycomb bed. Just need to install the cohesion3d pcb and I'll be all set.

Does anyone else have this air assist head from Saite Cutter on EBay? Does it assemble in the order I have it shown? My issue is the 2 washers. One looks to hold the lens and the other to keep the lens from moving when air assist is used. The problem is that with everything assembled the washers restrict the vertical movement by a good 5mm.

So what are the alternative's for a smoothie setup? I was planning to use +Scott Marshall ACR solution, but I haven't heard from him in quite some time. What other options are there for an easy Smoothie setup?
