Hi, I have a frustrating problem. I’m using Cut3D via a Universal Code sender linked to an Ooznest machine, & my issue is with cutting time estimates.
I’ve uploaded my latest CAD to Cut3D & work through each set-up stage, & for example the roughing cut time estimate is 27 mins, all good
Once converted & loaded to GCode sender the run time increases by at least 50%
Having watched the cutter running through the roughing path, initially it does all the criss-crossing that I'd expect, but then it goes back & runs around the outside profile again.
Every time the cutter moves -Z, it does all the expected criss-cross but then repeats the pointless profile cut again.
At the roughing stage this seems unnecessary, in fact it barley removes any additional material, but takes absolutely ages to complete
I've looked for any settings in Cut3D & asked the Universal Code program people, no joy so far
Any ideas very very welcome.
Thanks ..... Simon
