I’ve been playing with complex 3D curves in Fusion 360, and importing the GCode into an Easel session in its own workpiece. So I do all of my 2.5D carving as normal with Easel, then go to the new workpiece in Easel to incorporate curves.
My issue is when the GCode generated by Fusion 360 has finished carving successfully, and the cutter is at its lowest depth in the Z axis, the machine returns home without retracting, eating everything in its path.
Does anyone know what GCode I would need to append to the end of my existing GCode to force a full retract before returning home?
I just use the zero where the limit switches for the X and Y axis are, so zero is front left of the machine.
I didn’t keep the GCode from the file unfortunately- anything that didn’t work was deleted from Easel in case I accidentally ran it again. I do remember someone else was saying they had this same problem with Fusion GCode, but I can’t find it with the search function.
Basically everything is normal, except Fusion Gcode doesn’t retract before returning home at the end of the job.
i had the same issue awhile back with running my fusion models in easel if my Z was not pointing up in my setup and from the looks of your setup that is not the case. you change the orientation in your setup by clicking on the arrows to reorient the z to point up. after i reset that i never had that issue again. also set your stock point to be in the front top left corner of the stock, this too gave me issues when my fusion models had that set to the bottom of the stock
I’m having similar issues with my g-code import from fusion. I used the post-processor plugin as suggested by Inventables. However, when I went to set up my part for cutting, I noticed that my imported g-code had moved my file OFF the wasteboard. How can I fix this?
