Are my settings causing the problem?
« on: July 28, 2019, 11:45:51 PM »
Quick background
Machine - Updated a AXYZ 4008 to use Mach3
Steps per inch - They appear to be correct.  A 36"x36" box is just that 36"x36".  Depth of cut is also correct.

See the attached image.

The bottom 2 engravings are done with a 15deg engraving bit.  The appear to have odd issues in the corners.  I tried different feed rates and depth of cuts.  Both look to have problems.  As a side note I get the same problems when using a 60 or 90deg v-bit. I believe the stepover was 40%.  IPM was set to 80 and 40 bottom then middle.

The top engraving is done with a 7.5deg engraving.  the corners do not have the odd extra cuts and the text doesn't look like a 2 year old wrote the script.  I think the IPM was set to 40.  Stepp over was 40%.

Any ideas?
