I’ve been trying to figure out how to cut a 30 degree slot about 3/4" long. Honestly, I don’t even know where to start. The angle would plunge into the material starting at “0” on the surface to 3/16" deep about 3/4" away from the start of the slot, if that makes sense.
Any thoughts? TIA!
In the app library try the slope generator.
You could also write the Gcode for that path using the starting and stopping Z coordinates along with X, and Y in a text editor like notepad or wordpad. Learning how to write Gcode is a useful skill. When I started this about 13 years ago, there weren’t programs to convert the drawings for you as a DIY-er. Those came later. My first project was to write the code for a simple xmas sled ornament. I drew it on graph paper and determined the coordinates for the moves. Then Using G1, G2, G3, etc. I made it work. Later on I bought BobCad…but that’s a whole different story.
Fantastic, thank you so much!
Yes it would probably be very helpful to be able to write G-code. I’ll add this to my list of things to look into. Thank you!
