I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I obviously have something set up wrong, but don’t know what.
I have an xcontroller, Vcarve pro and UGS Platform (nightly build Aug 12)
In UGS Platform, I home my machine, send it to my G28 (start point). I then probe using the inventables probe for my material height. It is set to retract 20mm from material.
I then open up my gcode file, and hit run.
The bit raises an additional 20mm then comes down and begins cutting air. It seems to follow the correct pattern, just above the material.
Here is the opening lines from the gcode. (I am using the X-carve inches processor)
Now to make it more confusing.
If I hit the stop button in UGS. Everything stops.
Then I hit “Return to Zero” : The bit moves back to my zero point, just touching the material. ie… zero in all three axis.
Then I hit Run: The program will cut properly, including all correct depths. When it is finished it returns to the Zero point, but 20mm above the material.
If I then hit Run again, it will run everything properly again, also returning back to X,Y zero and 20mm above matertial.
If I swap out bits, requiring me to reprobe, It starts all over again with the air carve.
Here is the end portion of my Gcode
As an additional note, my probe works fine in easel.
Thanks for any help.
