Router not rising high enough between cuts

Post by EyeQ45 »

Hi,

Does anyone know how to adjust the maximum raised height on the Z axis when the cutter is moving to the next cut? At the moment it only raises about 10mm from the surface.

I'm cutting 1500x1500 x 4mm plastic sheet which can bow up on the board and then gets accidentally cuts as the raised router travels to the next cut point.

Cheers

Phil

On the toolpaths tab click the Set... button at the top to open the Material Setup dialog.

The Clearance (Z1) gap controls the movement between cuts with the Plunge (Z2) being the height the machine will rapid move to if enabled in the post processor.

The Z Gap above Material is where the Z will move to at the start and end of the job.
