Not sure if this a problem with Carbide Motion or operator error. I added bit setter to my Shapeoko XXL3.
When I want to run a project I typical follow the following steps.
- Turn on and initialize the machine.
- I install the bit I’m going to use.
- Using the probe I zero out X, Y and Z.
- I load the project I want to run and click on start.
Once I do that the machine wants to move the router over to the bit setter. After it does that the router starts and move over to the wood to start cutting but it just cuts air because “Z” is no longer at the top of the material. At that point I stop the project and set “Z” at zero again. I eventually get it to work. It has always worked fine once I get past the first operation. Meaning once it finishes a operation it moves to the front center of the machine and prompts me to change the bit. Then moves over to the Bit Setter before starting the next operation. Am I doing something wrong?
