I have a generic 3018 machine that I have modified to 3060, I also replaced the control board with a Sainsmart board.
I have recalibrated it and x and y axis function fine BUT I cannot get the bit to cut any more then 3 mm into the wood. no matter what thickness os wood ( and thus the starting height) it stops cutting at 3 mm.
Any thought on what I have done to cause this… my senses say it has to do with the controller change
Is the z axis bottoming out with no additional room to travel?
The spindle may need lowered within its clamp…
no, z axis has a full range of motion right through the material.
Verify the $132 setting which is the software contolled limit of travel for the z axis.
just having lunch, will check when i go back to shop. what range should it be in?
It needs to match the amount of mm that the z axis can possibly travel.
travel is 100 mm and that is what it is set at, earlies today i upped it to 250 to see what it would do and there was no change.
got it …tried reinstalling my machine and problem cleared up.
