My apologies if I have posted incorrectly or indeed the wrong place, let me begin by saying that I am thrilled to now be a part of a community that offers support and advice. And thank you for hearing me out.
My adventure started today, my CNC machine has sat in the workshop for some weeks and today I finally got some time to start experimenting. I am using Easel because I just love the idea that everything I need is one place, I can design, measure and cut in an environment that assuming I’ve loaded the measurements correctly should produce my first work of art…!
I measured everything, table dimensions added, material dimensions added and my first shape with some text and a second shape added.
What was shown ( attached ) is a rectangle, some text and a heart shape, however what appeared after the job completed ( I was mesmerized by the movement and cutting ) was a squashed version of it and it is this I would welcome so thoughts on? Did I do something wrong etc, Why doesn’t the aspect ratio of what I have drawn produce the same cut?
Thanks for the various tips, I am not sure they deal with the issue though?
I have run 2 cuts of 100mm, X & Y, the X cut is accurate, producing a line of 100mm but the Y cut is only 65mm. Of course that is known hence why I am getting squashed cuts and that not WYSIWYG given that I have drawn to scale on Easel?
Obviously until I can resolve this issue I am stumped and unable to use my CNC machine, should I output some code to see if the Y cut shows 100mm and if it does consider this a bigger problem than first thought?
