I have been having problems with my spindle getting stuck when making tabs out of Carbide Create, and @Jorge said the older versions were not handling the feed rates correctly, causing the plunge rate to be the same as the feed, which could account for my issue.
At his suggestion, I have tried the latest unstable build. I generated this tiny test file, and when I look at the g-code it seems like it’s still not plunging at the correct rate.
Can someone more fluent in g-code than me please double check it? I’d be very grateful!
Also, I’m pretty sure this is the bit that is making the tab:
Z2.009 X17.496Y39.974 Z-0.254
If I just edit that so it reads:
Would that work properly? Or does the F command go on the next line after that second Z?
Does this question make any sense?
