Another Question...Testing a Circle and its not perfect....Would you suggest playing with the CV Settings or the Backlash first

Hi Billy,
if you've got backlash then a circle will never be perfect no matter what compensation strategy is used./

Try using 'exact stop' just to remove the CV uncertainty but I dont think CV will have any affect on a circle
toolpath.

Hi Billy,
I have been watching your progress as observed by your posts and over a few weeks there has been a steep learning curve and a certain amount of angst
as you come to terms with your machine, Mach3 and F-engrave.

Now that you're making real progress how would you estimate the value of Mach3, the hardware and F-engrave?

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 :)
