I can not figure out why my xcarve is doing what it's doing... I designed in aspire, exported toolpath with xcarve mm, setup my piece, zeroed all 3 axis, start roughing, first pass is not perfect, but decent, but I leave for an hour right around the end of the first pass because everything looks to be working... Come back, router is bottomed out in the wasteboard, clamps all gave up, board I'm cutting is tattered and cut through in multiple spots, and twisted way out of position (from clamps giving up trying to hold my wood down), 1/4 in endmill is burnt and dull beyond use...
All of this after I triple checked Aspire and set and saved the pass depth at .02 inches... This isn't the first, second, or 3rd time it's crashed like this... (hence the tiny pass depth)
So I would like someone (just has to be someone who is successful with their xcarve) to come give it all a look-see and see what the heck I'm doing wrong. Will pay for gas and grill you a juicy steak, I'll even get beer if you want it (I don't drink)
If I had the finances right now, I'd pay... But a little tight.
