General Mach Discussion / Re: Depth Not Changing in Mach3
« on: November 07, 2017, 04:03:29 PM »
For Plastic (Soft)...Its all Good :)...When we took over the other company....The Person who ran the Dahlgren was like me trying to run the CNC at first :)..... We went by the Specs that he initially had as far as the bits.....What he had was incorrect...
I found that out by doing a Back Check with Antares... under the other companies name....They said that ACE got 15 degree not 30.... When we would send the bits in to be re-sharpened...We always thought they were 30....But now we know  that as well :)

Update.... A Few Things.....Turns out that we have a 15 degree angle on Flex Bits...Not 30 degree standarrd....so getting bits re-tooled...
Our Dahlgren spindle speed goes from 3000 to 23000....and we run brass at about  11000...Reading up more ion the Mach3 software and tweeks...Once I get the Bits Back..... I can give a better update.....

Awwwwwe :)

Its working very well....I still need to make the Z touch Plate.....But for what we use it for....Plastic and Brass...
Its a few more steps than with the Dahlgren...With a Bit more tweeking on my part...should be good to go....

In the Beginning...was pulling out my hair...Proud to say It's growing back quite well...

I could not have progressed as far without You and Tweekie .....I still have a ways to go, but at least I am on the right path :)

OK New Wrinkle...I send a Job from F-Engrave to Tap File....If I set the Depth at  -.0001 or -.0125....The Depth does not change.... I am perplexed...This Just started happening today....
