Why does it not cut properly?

Why does my x-carve not carve on the left side of my material, i have used several different pieces of wood and different bits and it is the left side where it does not cut properly every time. Why???

Your bed is not level. Or perfectly flat.

…relative to Z-height :slight_smile:

…or the stock material is not the same thickness from one side to the next… :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ve only had my machine for about a month but I have had this issue. There probably are better ways but I have started surfacing my work piece before cutting the design. So far it has worked for me.

Agreed. I surface every piece before carving
