was the motto for the Carvewright system and their software. A bit of an exaggeration but compared to the feeling I have had for the last month, it’s fairly accurate.
I literally feel like my head might explode with all these parameters I have to understand and set properly to avoid the risk of ruining a project or damaging a tool.
Sorry, I just need to vent someplace because I haven’t run a single job for well over a month and it’s because I finally realized just how much of the backend work the Carvewright software did for the user. Then the machine is loaded with sensors that know if there is a problem and it will automatically pause a job rather than damage something.
It feels like every time I have something figured out, well I find out that I don’t. If I had started my CNC journey with VCarveP and the SO3 I doubt I would have kicked out as many projects early on as I did with the Carvewright. It feels like I am back at zero when customers expect 99 when they see the work I have done in the past.
Just feeling a bit lost at the moment… especially since I have committed myself financially to learning all this. Unfortunately, I think I bit off more than I can chew all at once. I really thought at this point in time I would have been posting images of a job that I was so proud of and instead, I find myself still spinning my wheels in the mud.
