Can someone please explain how the Max Depth parameter in MeshCam is meant to be used? Are you supposed to set it to the full depth of your stock? I thought it was simply meant to be used to keep from cutting into your spoil board, but I’m starting to wonder.
If you set it to the exact thickness of your stock, does it force the cutter to go all the way through? Does it override the depth settings in the stock window? I ask because I have now managed to ruin two (test) pieces, both of which I had set to have a bottom margin of 2mm when I defined my stock size. And both of which I had also set the Max Depth to be the exact thickness of the piece.
So, in short, what does Max Depth actually do, and how should I set it, assuming I’m trying to leave some material at the bottom of my work piece?
Thanks very much for any help!
