Put my machine together a few weeks ago. I have a 1000mm x-carve
Its been working really well overall and very impressed with the machine.
As far as i know, the machine is calibrated properly per the assembly instructions and some of the tips i’ve seen here on the forums. This includes belts, v-wheels.
Have been experimenting with the classic box maker on both 1/2 MDF and 1/2" Birch Ply.
Using a 1.8" spiral upcut with feed rate and depth at the stock values for MDF as well as the ply. Cutting using outline, and outside of the path.
After several attempts to make a box today noticed i cant get this gap to close and notice some of the tails are irregular and not sqaure. Using calipers to input the material thickness into the classic box maker, and entering the bit diameter into the dogbone maker (although i don’t know what the threshold value does). As you can see by the pics something isn’t right and think it’s probably something to do with slop in the belts/v-wheels etc not being setup properly.
My other thought is that maybe the part when almost at cut depth is moving or something and contacting the bit during passes. I am using tabs (2 per part) and have the material held down with doublestick tape.
Any tips or troubleshooting advice would be greatly appreciated.
