V carve problem in ne cc

(Bob zambron) #1

okay I upgraded to the new CC version. created a simple welcome sign using a v carve bit 302. saved g code and tried to run the file. problem is it is plunging all the way through the wood. welcome sign.c2d (927.7 KB)

i made other signs in the old version and had no problem.

Retract height is set to 4 inches in that file — probably the machine is trying to lift up that 4 inches, bottoming out against the stops, thinking it’s higher than it is, then plunging from a height which it assumes Is higher than it is.
