I’ve been successfully using Vectric Pro and UGS on the XCarve for several months now, and accumulated a fair number of carve files. Recently I upgraded the XCarve controller firmware and now all my carves happen above the workpiece. These are all simple 2D cutouts–no engraving, no 3D, just cut all the way through the workpiece to finish. None of the Vectric settings I’ve tried changing have any effect.
When the final G1 command is sent to lower Z to the proper cutting depth (below datum 0, to the bottom of the workpiece), UGS reports that this command was “skipped by application.”
Was something changed in this area in the XCarve Controller firmware upgrade? Is there a way to revert to an older set of the firmware? How do I even find out what version of the firmware I had when I bought the XCarve so I can get back to that?
