Milling test with photos, videos, G-code files - leveling issue?
Ok, maybe I was a little too ambitious for a first attempt!
Here is the picture I started from:
Processed in PhotoVCarve, 40° v-bit, 1.5mm depth should give this:
This is what I got:
Here is a short vid of BoXZY busy V-carving (30secs, 45MB):
Here is the G-code file:
Several things come to mind. First the leveling issue, the workpiece height is set at the far end (X=150, Y=0) and, the cuts are as expected, but as we get closer to (X=0, Y=100) I don't even touch the surface anymore.
I'm concerned the workpiece platform lacks rigidity for this kind of work.
Another issue is that my lines aren't straight, there is definitely a wobble.
Is this a good question?
