X Carve 1000 using a 1/2 inch straight cut normal router bit.
note: May buy a 1 inch surface cutter later.
So I am playing with manual use of G Code and so far have figured out how to set my feed rate, and move my cutter in the direction I want it to go. I plan to have the height set, and just want to move the head in X and Y axis as I am surfacing the wood.
I home my machine prior to each cutting project. And in this case, I move the head to the start of the material and set the cutting height in prep. I am trying to create a file to move my cutting head relative to its current location in a square by creating a .nc file with the following
When I import the code, I get an syntax error on line 2.
I can do this with the keyboard and the jog button, but something this repetitive over a 2ft by 2ft surface has no justified reason to be done manually. Which got me started down this path of creating a file to import.
What am I doing wrong? I am not using absolute locations and starting from the home point of X0 Y0 Z0.
