Hotwire Cutter offset
« on: November 24, 2013, 02:06:38 AM »
I am new to CNC and have just built a 4 Axis hotwire foam cutter. Everything works great but are not sure how to setup the tool diameter to compensate for the cut.

In tool offset on tool 1 I have put in diameter as 2.35mm and in the g-code I have used T1 G41 or G42 but it doesn't seem to work.

Currently I am putting the offset into the drawing and as you can imagin it is a mission of note.

Anybody that can help? Would really appreciate.
