1  Support / CamBam help (General usage) / Re: Plotter pen dives into the stock on: Yesterday at 23:12:14
Hello

One would expect that the program sets the Cut Feedrate and then moves to the indicated position. However, the plotter pen buries itself in the stock instead. I'm beginning to distrust my machine...

Yes, it's what it should do ....

line 13 > goto Z = -0.1 at 300 mm/min plunge feedrate
line 14 > straight cut at 800 mm/min up to coordinate X-89.5068 Y109.8897
and no other Z move until the Engrave2 mop is finished

what is the display in the Z DRO after than the pen has crashed in the stock ? ..

Hello

Generate a second mop by copy/paste the roughing mop, then set the Adjust Cut Width property to False in the side profile section. (and of course, remove the offset)



    Adjust Cut Width = true                                            Adjust Cut Width = false

I don't understand why yet, but Cambam outputs the G-code for each part separately.
One "CS Frame Template 070-Plot.nc" and one "CS Frame Template 070-Mill.nc".

I don't know of any setting that could be behind this. If I output the G-Code via CTRL+W I always have the whole program.
I have opened the G-Code file "CS Frame Template 070-Mill.nc" and it goes directly to Z-3.15.

What's going on? I don't know this behavior from Cambam.
Same behavior in 0.9.8 and V1R16

someone can just output the g-code and confirm if it's just me or if it's the file.

Hello

This happens if the Gcode name in each part is different of the main Gcode name. (picture)

If you remove the whole filepath in the part Gcode name properties, using CTRL W creates only one file for the whole project

Setting the Plunge Feedrate to Auto resulted in a mysterious error message:

Do not use Auto for plunge feedrate ; it is not supported for this property (if I use it, I get a plunge feedrate = 0.0 in the Gcode) ; it's what it said in the error message.

ERROR:C:\Users\Lou\Documents\CAM\CS Frame Template 070-Plot.nc:14:1:Cutting move with zero feed

I do not see any error in your both Gcode, as said Ralf, the Gcode for the engraving go to -0.1mm deep and the Gcode for milling go to -3.15mm deep so exactly what it must do.

Yes, but the strange thing is that there is other lines that have no coordinate for the Z (I assume it is not written when Z=0) .. and they do not cause a problem ...

I'll move this post to the bug section

Hello

Yes, I get an error on Linux ( error in XML document 166-36)

I do not see strange things in the line 166 of the XML

I get exactly the same error on CB 0.98 P for linux.

I also just see that the Draw/surface/extrude solids and fill functions in the V1.0 are not working on linux (CB terminate)

(Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32 bits)

Hello

Is it the expected behavior and native mops do the same ?

Yes, I just tried with a pocket mop with scale Z = -1 and the cut start with the bottom most toolpath and ends with the top most .. (seen with the toolpath filter), so I assume that negative Z scaling has no usage in real life.

It's not a CB problem, but a plugin problem ; this is the plugin that must be repaired so it works on the V1.0 ...

Hello

You can insert Gcode commands in the Custom File Footer property of the machining folder so they will be executed just before the program end.

Ex: in the Custom File Footer property, write G30 and the machine will go to home position when the program is finished (Gcode for Mach3, check if it is usable on your own driving software)

if you want to insert this Gcode all the time, you can also edit your post processor to add it to the PP

Ex: edit the Footer property of the PP ; by default it is:

{$clearance}
{$spindle(off)}
{$cbfile.footer}
{$endrewind}

change for that

{$clearance}
{$spindle(off)}
{$cbfile.footer}
G30
{$endrewind}

It is a good idea to make a copy of the PP that your are using and to modify the copy instead of the original.  Wink

Of course, you can use other Gcode commands than G30 if you want to move the axis to a specific position.

(polyMin,polyMax) = poly.GetExtrema(polyMin,polyMax)

This statement can also be written without the parenthesis ; found in the gbr2cb.py script from jk (line 40)

Code:
            p0, p1 = e.GetExtrema(p0, p1, False)
