I am new to Fusion 360 but made a design for a simple cog which generates the proper tool path. I export the G code through the Easel post processor and import it into Easel. The tool path appears centered on the lower, left hand corner, off-set from the origin but otherwise ok. When I play the carve path it looks just fine. Then, I set up and secure my stock and go through the Carve procedures. I zero the start point to be the center of my 3/4" stock and, of course, on the top of the stock with the probe as I would do using a standard X-carve event.
When I start the carve, the tool goes to the proper X-Y position but then goes upwards by the thickness of the stock. It proceeds to carve the cog in the air above the stock.
It seems as if Easel wants me to zero the Z axis on the waste board then it would go to the proper Z depth and start cutting. But there is no way to define Z as being below the stock (at least that I can see).
There were a couple of previous posts where others had this problem but there was never a solution. I would really appreciate any help available.
