Hello, I was hoping someone can take a few minutes to help me out. I was following Kevin Barnett along with “Getting started with Shapeoko - Hello Contour” and in making my first cut my end mill went straight down through my stock and plunged right into my aluminum base. I can’t seem to figure out what went wrong. I have the thickness of my stock set to 0.688 as I’m using 3/4 plywood. Also, my first toolpath is set to start at 0 with a max of 0.125. Please help.
Not sure if I’m doing this right but below I attempted to upload my file.
Thanks for the feedback! I’ll have to look into a lot of this when I get better because I honestly didn’t understand the majority of it haha. But the beginning actually raised another question for me you may be able to help me with? I selected that ball end mill because the library didn’t have the one i was using and I thought it may be similar enough to the one i had. I was using the Amana Tool - 46282-K. Is there a way to add Amana tools to the library or do I need to look up the parameters for each one and add them in individually? - Which seems like it would take forever! lol
