Click on the appropriate x carve (inch or metric) and save to the file that you created when you first started the design.
Its in alphabetical order so the xcarve will be at the bottom of the list.
you will need to do this for every tool path.
These will be the files that you send to your controller.
Check out their website.
If I’m not mistaken, you can download a demo version and play with it.
Their support is also fantastic. You will not be disappointed.
(no I don’t work for them. Just a very satisfied customer)
Just to clarify as I know @VeteranWoodCo is newer to this. You are using Easel as a gcode sender in the same way Jan is using PicSender.
For what it’s worth, I use CNCjs (mostly), and find it to be excellent. I ran a job a couple days ago with 3 tool changes exported as one file from V-Carve.
@JanVanderlinden V-Transfer is the built in sender for vectric. Don’t bother with it.
Evening update. Thank you for everyone’s input. I dabbled a little bit with Picsend, then tried CNCjs, but ultimately ended up using Easel to make the carve. However, after 5 attempts, I continued to have pathways off between bit changes. I only re-probed after the bit change, kept the existing home location, and off it would go, cutting nearly 1/16th-1/8th inch off path. My Y-Axis Carriage feels snug up and down, and doesn’t have any play in it, but seems to move way to easy if accident bumped. Tomorrow I’ll give everything a once over and try again.
In the console, when connected to the machine, type $1 = 255
The dip switches are inside the X-Controller.
Shown ON in the image below…you want them OFF.
Some info so that you’re not blindly changing things based on some “pretend expert”:
$1 = 255 is the setting to keep the axes motors enabled whenever powered on. Source
The fourth switch does a similar thing…it reduces the holding torque on idle (not moving) motors. Turning it off keeps them enabled when the machine is on. They’ll only move when you tell them to or if you really want to try to move them by hand.
Thank you @NeilFerreri1, Iv updated the GRBL settings, dip switches, and tightened up the eccentric spacers on the X+Y axis, the carriages were very easy to move by hand. Seems like shes tighter now, but moves easily when commanded to.
