I set my material depth and the home position and when the x-carve starts it goes too deep. It does not seem to recognize my home starting point.
I cut some 1/4 MDF as my first test cut and when it cut the part out it went into my wasteboard. So for the second test I put a 1/4 MDF under the one I wanted to cut. My total depth was 1/2 an inch. I set the material to 1/4 and reset the home position. I would assume that when I home it that it would start the depth from that home position.
It immediately cut way too deep. It went completely through the 1/4 material into the second board behind it.
How is the home position actually set?
I wanted to put the 1/4" material under the board I was cutting to save my waste board. I actually think that the reason it cut through the material before is that the z-depth was going too far then. I set the depth for .19" which should have been enough for it to not cut all the way through.
Since this is my first test cuts I am not sure exactly what I am doing wrong.
