Just got done doing a bunch of work to my XXL - upgraded to HDZ, upgraded to steel belts, trammed, resurfaced spoil board, calibrated X and Y and added a bitsetter.
I don’t know if this belongs with Carbide Motion or V Carve Pro Post Processor
I’ve only run one test job with the bitsetter, (and so far it seems like it’ll be awesome) but this seemed to be a small concern. Turn the machine on, it homes, moves to front center, asks to insert bit, hit OK, moves over to bitsetter and measures - all good.
I then run a probe for X, Y, Z, turn the router on and hit run - all good. Bit 1 finishes, moves to front center and asks for bit 2, turn router off, swap bits hit continue, moves to bitsetter - all good. Probes bit on bitsetter and immediately starts to run job - does NOT give a prompt to turn on router - NOT GOOD!
I know there is time between bitsetter and actual start of cut to tun the router on, but it seems to me it should get confirmation BEFORE cutting just in case. Is this the way it’s designed? Or is that something that could easily be added to CM or VCarve PP? Or maybe it’s already in VCarve PP and I just have the wrong version. I do have CM 4.0.428
If this is the way it’s supposed to be that’s fine, I just need to be sure to turn router on after it leaves bitsetter but before it starts cutting.
