I am not positive the is a Vectric issue, could be a controller (mach3) issue. There appears to be some sort of "ramp" into and out of a few of the letters in the attached pics (see U's L's and H's). I have followed the plate production .pdf so I am assuming this might be a mach3 issue. Looking for some input from those that might have experienced this.
CV is enabled and set for 180.00 (180 what?)
Tangential settings are for aligning a knife blade to the tool path with a stepper motor.
It seems to step down as if it is missing steps and the cut gradually gets deeper. I have tried everything that I can think of , resetting the steps etc and cleaning and lubricating the Z axis in case it was a mechanical problem, all to no avail. I only seem to have trouble with the 3d carving with 3d machinist.
Thanks so much. I made the changes per your post and all is well. Now my self-assigned homework is to sit down and try understand what CV does as well as this tangential setting. Thanks again.
Seems to be working a treat. I have been reading posts on cv for awhile and it never occurred to me to slow the motor velocity down and as a result had them running at max speed for them on my machine.
Anyway, thanks again, your suggestion seems to have fixed the problem.
