Hi. Finally got my Nomad up, went through the tutorials and started the wrench project.
Two verry basic questions.
1- is there a way to move the spindle up in the z direction when I am not running a project (ie with Motion)? I wanted to change the collet, nut and cutter to follow the tutorial (I purchased 1/4 and 1/8) and the spindle was far enough down that it wasn’t easy to put the cutter in without raising i a little.
2- what is the best way to set the z-depth. I put down the aluminum composite, then set the z-depth by eye using a piece of paper then set it to zero.
When I ran it the the first time I cut air for a couple loops so the wrench didn’t cut free. I tried again, this time ‘bumping’ the material when I lowered the cutter, and backing off .01mm, but this time it cut too deep, right through the material and into the waste board on the first loop so I stopped it - not sure how much it is supposed to shave off on each pass - or how many passes it makes.
Thanks for answering my baby questions.
