Re: M500 ... SETTING EEPROM... what did I do wrong?

Duh.... I figured it by myself... I think.... The XY and Z positioning the M2 does on restart/reset was determined using the default values the machine's EEPROM was supplied with... so of course, if I have set those values differently then of course it's gonna position everything in the wrong place....

Re: Tolerances: To you guys that assemble parts

I use OpenSCAD almost exclusively specifically because of the control it gives me over tolerance. I've redefined all the base geometric object constructions to accommodate and allow for adjustments in tolerance. It may seem like overkill and tedious but it's comforting to know that I can easily chan...
