Pocketing Problems
« on: August 21, 2016, 03:32:27 PM »
Well back again with more of the same problems.

After 2 weeks of replacing bearings , squaring up the machine and adjustments after my machine mysteriously went off the job dimensions and into my clamping system I finally have been running test pieces.

Thought I had everything pretty good.  I decided to try a Vcarve Inlay since I finally got them working after months before this collapse.

The machine just kept going around the same first pocketing cut , a complete loop from inside the vector but never moving outwards to take out/pocket more material.  It runs an initial loop and just keeps repeating over and over in the same pattern.

All my settings are the same, I did not mess with anything.  I looked at stepover and it is the same as always in which I have had success before.

I am using Aspire 8.5 and Mach3

Anyone ever have this problem before?

If you attach you Gcode file it can be tested.
