Running a Vcarve pro project Z-Axis grinds then plunges straight down


(Richard Hensley) #1

After reinstalling Carbide Motion v4 I am able to use Carbide Create generated g-code without issue. My only issue now is trying to run any g-code from Vcarve Pro.
I have a Shapeoko3 XXL.

Usually this is caused by a datum or safety/retract height set higher than the machine can move.

Post your file here (or to support@carbide3d.com) if you can’t find it and we’ll do our best to help.

That’s your Log / G-Code settings, not the Vectric file or G-Code or setup instructions which were asked for.

This is the gcode file I created to test with…simple pocket with Drillhole.

Will, I’m good now. The retract and datum were off. I’m good now…thanks.
