Ok so I got the Metal Maslow sled & z-axis upgrade from @Metalmaslow It’s amazing, I love it. They were great to deal with, and sorted out all of my issues very quickly. This thing is a beast, js.
Ok on to my issue. So I changed the z-axis pitch in maslow settings to -8, which works very well. It moves up and down the amount I tell it to, no problems. YAY! I then changed the Radius setting to 180.34mm as instructed by @Metalmaslow to do. I cut some things just to test the z-axis and they came out beautifully! Tabs were flawlessly created, and all the cuts were super clean. YAY! Ok so, I made a DXF of a single line, that’s 12" long. Took it into my cam software, and measured it, yep, 12". Exported the gcode, and off to the maslow it went! It cut a beautiful, and perfectly straight vertical line as I told it to. A beautiful, and perfectly straight 11.5" vertical line. So now my 1/16" accuracy is 1/2" and I can’t have that. LOL
What advice would you give to get me back to my accuracy that I had before changing to the new sled? The MetalMaslow sled is significantly smaller in diameter than the stock sled where my accuracy was within 1/16 of an inch. I made the 2 changes I was instructed to do, but nothing I did would get me a 12" line on my material. I even manually entered my chain lengths, which was off in GC, but made no difference to the 12" line. I manually measured the radius, which I was told should be 7.1" and was more like 7.25", I changed that, and tried again, 11.5" again. Then I changed it all back to my original calibration settings and figured I’d ask the pros
