I’m working w/ wood of slightly-varying heights.
The first F360 operation is a facing cut to get it down to the model size.
Because Carvey pings off the smart clamp it “knows” the height of the wood–I want it to not do that. To put it another way:
- My model height is 0.5"
- Stock height in F360 is 0.75"
- I want Carvey to pretend it’s 0.75" even know it knows the height
- I want this to happen w/o having to use any jigs/fixtures/shims
- I’d prefer to not have to manually edit the GCode, but can script this if it’s the only way
At the beginning of the operation it would be machining air, i.e., the stock height from F360 is greater than the actual stock height.
When I load the GCode it says it uses the material height from the GCode, but it’s removing 0.25" material from the top of the actual material, which indicates it’s still using the Smart Clamp Z offset.
I’ve also tried setting the origin in F360 to the bottom of the stock (instead of the top) but then Easel appears to use the Z probe height as the stock top, so it’s ~ stock height above the surface of the material.
I tried exporting the GCode but I don’t see a homing sequence I can remove.
