I’m trying to produce this raised surface on the face of two sides of a triangular shaped piece of wood. The raised surface should be on the centerline of the face.
When I run the simulation in fusion, it’s great.
When I run the program on the shapeoko, the raised feature is shifted off the centerline and almost at the positive Y edge (see drawing here. Link )
When the shapeoko starts, it cuts down the y axis, going beyond the width of the triangle, cutting air as it travels down a line parallel to the X axis. It then moves parallel to the y axis in negative direction, and then turns to move -x direction still cutting the top of the triangle face.
The end result as I said is that the raised feature is not on the centerline face as shown in the drawing, but almost as far in the Y direction that it can be and still be on the face of the triangle.
I set zero using a piece of paper, setting all three axes.
I had similar results with the first project I created. I honestly don’t remember how I was able to resolve the issue but it was similar in that I cut a lot of air on one side of the project.
Anyway, I cannot find any documentation or any other help on what to do. I’m hoping you all can help.
I’m using shapeoko 3 XL with latest carbide motion software.
Thanks in advance.
