Re: How do you resume a carving after a stop

I don't think you can resume a Stopped carving or choose to start anywhere in the program with the NWA machines. You can only do so on a pause. The best you can probably do is edit the file: preserve the 'safe' code at the top. Everything else is positioning. Delete everything up to where you want t...

Re: Sign Routing

What Rockler is showing as a sign making bit is a box core router bit.
that probably falls under the category of a forming endmill. You'll have to look at the
tutorials for adding your own forming tool.

Re: Z axis cut depth

your file indicates you've selected the BED as your Z origin with 1/2" material. A positive cut of 0.375 from the bottom is minus 0.125" from the top so that is correct. ( Although I would never use the bed as the origin. ) what we can't see is where you've physically set the origin in the controlle...

Yeah I've always been curious what that is. I'm usually running
plastics at about 150 ipm but I have no idea if it is actually running that speed.

Re: Virtual Setup - Runs past top

I don't know why it works when you bypass the virtual setup since
The gcode says your thickness is .25" but it plunges -.27 in several places.
that should cut too deep regardless of how you set it up.

Re: X and Y Axis

simply rotate your design before creating the toolpaths. No need to mess around with cables.

Re: Router is not following g-code

I agree you've used the wrong post processor but I think even if you did I suspect the same tiny movements would be generated. while the file doesn't explicitly call out for metric or imperial movements my guess it has defaulted to inches. either way - first couse of action is to choose the correct ...

Re: Router is not following g-code

well the simulation and parameters look good so I'd want to take a look at the gCode as well. BUT - lets get into tool selection. You've selected a vbit which regardless of the size the cutting is done with only the point. Sure the sides clear out area but the program only knows that the tiny tip ha...
