I am trying to figure out how to orient the project’s lower left to the material’s lower left so I can use the bit zero without having to jog the bit over to the middle of the material and HOPE to gods of sawdust that I am over far enough that the project fits because carbide Motion does not have a run boundary feature- which is amazing in itself. I saw there was a thread asking for it, but it has been removed and haven’t seen it requested anywhere else. I figure they expect you to reference off lower left, but I haven’t found how to do it in fusion 360 yet. Carbide Create can’t import the stl models (topologies) so unless there is a way and I missed it, Fusion 360 it is for now. What is the process? Anything I try, puts the center of the topology on where ever i set the X0,Y0 and that renders the bit zero useless.
I think the machine has issues. The first project I ran, the router would raise up 10-20mm and stop. Wouldn’t take any commands, had to restart the machine and cncjs. Thanks to Youtube, I plugged the machine into a surge protector and made it through the project without issues. My garage has its own break panel and the only other thing running was the Festool CE26. Today, something made it try to launch my router to Mars. Somehow, the machine got stuck on a command (running a dedicated 2011 macbook pro 13" as the controller) and by the time I got to the machine, it was saying 457mm and climbing for the machine Z and work Z. Pretty sure that motor just entered its retirement age.
