General Mach Discussion / X-Z cutting clips top of material
« on: October 08, 2020, 02:38:55 PM »
I posted this problem under another topic, maybe I didn't explain it very well.

On 3D parallel roughing with single line X-Z or Y-Z  movements I always get the top of the material clipped. I turned off Constant Velocity and still get the clipping. There has to be something I have setup wrong. With every other operation the router is working flawlessly and has from the beginning.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I'm finding that 3D roughing code generated by MeshCAM clips the edge of the stock as if the Z axis starts moving too soon. It only occurs in 3D roughing. Mach3 has been working flawlessly for the past 3 months doing 2D and 2 1/2D routing. This is the first time I've used 3D. The errors seem to occur when a single line contains a X and Z move. I've tried turning off Constant Velocity, but is has not changed anything. I've tried slowing down the Z axis, which makes it worse (bigger bite on the edge of the stock) I've tried slowing down the X and Y axis, no joy. I'm hoping that someone else has already solved this before.
