So I got my Maslow put together, and after some issues with the zaxis fixed with a 3d printed part, I managed to cut the final sled without issue.
My first project was to cut some sawhorses. I found the dxf file online, imported it into fusion, and followed this tutorial to get a toolpath generated and export a gcode: Fusion360 CAM for Maslow Tutorial - YouTube
I cut the sawhorse in the top left corner of the stock, because that was the least effed up part from all the testing and sled attempts. As it cut the top, I guess it jumped a tooth and got off. I didn’t notice right away, and it seems like when it came back around, the chain jumped off the sprocket and the sled fell. I was able to shut the power off, and the damage doesn’t look too serious, but I’m trying to figure out what I did wrong.
Since I can only post two links, I’ve shared the GCode, a screenshot of GC, my fusion file, and a photo of the aftermath here: Maslow Disaster - Google Drive
Any help would be appreciated, I’m a total noob at milling. I’m planning to put things back together and cut a new sled, but I won’t be creating my own tool paths until I understand what went wrong.
