I’m working on a project at the moment to cut 8 clock faces with the hands engraved on to the face as an education tool for a local museum.
My plan was to use F engrave for the clock face detail by importing the G code to Easel. I would then change bit and use Easel to cut the round face out from the stock. The problem is, when i swap from the G code file to do the cut out the start point for the two files doesn’t seem to be the same.
I get an offset of roughly 3-5mm.
by moving the circle around in easel i’m managed to get it to work but it means for each one readjusting the circle cut and trial running until its perfect. This is going to take way too much time.
I think its a setting in F engrave i’d got wrong when creating the G-code however i cant find it.
I really should buy V carve but i just can’t afford it at the moment.
