I’m having trouble with depth of cut. I’m not sure if the problem occurs in partcam or the z-axis in ground control. I have set up my profiles for cutting .197" utility plywood at :
tool diameter - Ive tried both .125 and .25
target depth -.22 in
step down .12 in
Partcam seems to accept these parameters but after generating the g-code and downloading into ground control, as I start the cut, the Maslow wants to cut the full depth…twice! I believe I have set the z-axis properly in ground control. Could this be a “communication problem” from svg. > partcam > g-code > ground control. I must admit, I have been away from my machine for while and had no issues previously.
There also seems to be a problem generating tabs. I can create the tabs but if I zoom in or out, the blue indicators end up scattered all over the screen and, try as I may, they never return to the original placement on the design.
I know these are probably “operator errors” but I do want to get back to cutting. Love the machine and have lots of projects on the back burner. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. tiara
