Machine Cutting Oversize
« on: May 10, 2013, 04:54:28 AM »
My X3 is cutting 0.010" oversize, I have checked the kerrnell speed, done a MDI input X 1.00" and measured the movment it is spot on.
I am useing ArtCam Pro and has worked fine for years
Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?

Thanks
Mike

It can be due to a lot of things. It could  be how your defining the tool in ArtCam ...I don't know anything about ArtCam.

You don't say whether it's internally or externally oversize. A first guess might be (internal oversize) tool 0.005 oversize or (external oversize) tool 0.005 undersize. TBH my last guess would be kernel speed.

As I siad I have been useing ArtCam for years and nothing I do has changed, ArtCam has a tool menu like all Cam packages, you input the size be it inch or mm and it shows the size in decimil

The total is 1.00" as the part I am cutting is both sides, and new cutter, as I said the kernel speed is what it normaly is, that was the idea of the MDI test.
