Amateur Question

I carve a project, first bit roughly to remove the mass of the carve, then I want to switch to a more detailed bit in the router, How do I tell the 2nd bit where to start work. Currently, I had the bit make a lot of motion in thin air without touching the previously carved surface.

I hope that makes sense…

That can be set up as a 2 stage carve. When the roughing bit is done and you switch to the detail bit and it should know what to carve.

Don’t forget to re-zero the Z-Axis when you switch to the detail bit.

are you saying to Zero to the depth of previous carved space? do you Zero the deepest space or the raised level of inverted Print/art?

a bit more details of this “2 stage carve” not sure if I know how that is accomplished.

Up on the right hand corner where you select the bit you want to use you can click on i think a little star there and turn it into a 2 stage carve.

Here’s the basic, stright forward Easel 2 stage carving:

And Here’s adding in some more options to get more control of what bit is used for what job on a multiple stage cave:
