Cutter marking wood
« on: July 01, 2006, 03:47:16 PM »
Hi all.

I have a small problem whilst cutting Mach3 does not appear to be reading the program too well I think, My cutter is cutting in a  jerky  motion, can anyone tell me what the problem is.

Thanks Bill S

What are your steps per unit and could we have a pic of the mill :)

Thanks Brian,

One of the problems is solved and I think I know what the other is, first one was not cutting smooth, that was caused by me having the CV FEEDRATE button check at + 10, as soon as I turned it off bingo smooth and faster cuts, Second is the marking on the wood, I have 12mm bars carrying my zaxis and there is a slight amount of flexing so, I think I will go and get some 18/19 mm bars and do a re-build in that area, not all the marking has gone but it is a lot better.

Kind Regards
