Lazycam plunge clearance problem
« on: September 10, 2007, 05:06:33 AM »
Firstly thanks to everyone who works on mach & lazycam, when I was told to scrap my cnc engraver you saved me :)

Now the problem:-
when i first used lazycam the plunge clearance in posting options (if this is the problem) was set to 0.1, i.e. if the cutter was at a depth of -1mm it would rise to -0.9mm before plunging to its next depth.
Now the cutter always rises to 0.1mm between every pass, i.e. if it is at -1.0mm it will rise to 0.1mm and the plunge to its next depth setting. As I use lots of passes to cut through material this constant rising wastes a lot of time.
I have not changed the plunge clearance in posting options as far as I can see, what am I missing or what shouldn't I have tweeked??
