I was machining six identical components from .08" x .08" (2mm x 2mm) styrene bar using a 0.5mm flat endmill, for a model railroad bridge mockup. I had machined 5 of the 6 repeats when I got the dreaded Connect Cutter message in Carbide Motion. I already had the stock clamped on the spoilboard (I had machined a .08" wide by .07" deep trench in the board, and holding the stock down by a scrap of aluminum sheet in the middle area not being machined). After the necessary reboot of the PC and Nomad, I decided to try an experiment and went directly to Load Project. The Nomad machined the last part flawlessly. I’d already measured the homing repeatability at .001" or so, but relieved that the Nomad keeps the current machine zero point in non-volatile memory.
(Part needs a little bit of deburring on the underside where the cutter broke through…)
Continuing respect and kudos to the Carbide team, and thanks for a fantastic product!
