Hello! Ive been reading tons of forums and can’t seem to find the solution to my problem. Hoping to find some help from the community. Thanks in advance.
I am using a 3018 CNC with easle. When I go to start carving I work through the bit size, material thickness and position settings. When I put the bit in the correct position I click on “Raise the bit”. At this point instead of raising up just enough to move around the material it goes all the way up. I then click “turn spindle on” and then Carve just to see what happened. It follows the path but does so a few inches above the material. No matter how many times I reset the position, reconnect the machine, I still have the same problem. Ive looked at the machine inspector settings and… well lets just say I’m not to familiar with computer lingo.
Setting the Z probe to zero meaning I find the bottom left corner of the material and bring the probe just right above the material. Close enough for paper to slide in. This is the point when I hit raise the bit and it just goes all the way up.
I appreciate the help, I really do! After putting that code into the console it jogged the machine to the right spot but still did not carve the board like I wanted it to. I took a video if that helps, but is too large to upload here.
Also, I did two test runs earlier with some random text and it worked just fine…
