I’ve had a few issues where the right side of my cut is quite shallow. In 2 of my 3 cuts, I’ve noticed that the first pass on the right side of a project is pretty much air, while the left side cuts pretty well.
The name (3rd image) was cut separately from the truck, but both items had the same issue that the right side is shallower than the left. The text was one through Easel, so nothing strange in converting text in something like inkscape.
Now, my questions are about machine level versus floor/table level.
My floor is pretty unlevel. My table is pretty good, but because the floor is off, the table is off. That means my machine is technically off level.
That said, I’ve verified that the height between the waste board and the top of the X-axis is the same distance at x=0, and x=900mm. So my X axis is “level” with the wasteboard, even if those and the table aren’t level.
If the machine is level with itself, how much would it matter if the floor isn’t level? I guess gravity might be a factor if the machine is fighting it as it moves along that axis…but I just don’t have enough machine knowledge to know.
Also, the “odd” factor here is that X=0 is the LOW point. So when I set Z home to my work point, I’m technically putting it at a “lower” point. So even if it had something to do with the table, one would think that if the work area was RISING as it moved X positive, that the cuts on that side would get deeper. But it gets shallower.
I’m guessing it isn’t the mill moving in the collet any, as it goes back to the first letter to do deeper passes and continues to cut that side to a decent depth, but when doing a second and 3rd pass at the last letter, it’s still much shallower.
Any thoughts on how to fix shallow cut?
