Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I am have problems with understanding work flow etc. I have spent a young persons life time on YouTube and here to get a handle on it.
My machine Long Mill 30X30
Trying to create the spoil board here: Spoilboard project - #8 by mikecmp
Ok, no weird noises anywhere from the machine, after getting a controller that would drive the x-axis properly it drives all axis smooth and silky (love the sound).
I jogged the machine to the top left corner since the instructions stated the start point. I used paper to adjust the bit height of the z-axis.
At this point should I reset Zero?
From carbide create I generate the g code, first bad sign is toolpath in Carbide have a strike through each task, Why or should I do something, missed some thing, will the g code not work.
Open UGS Platform, make sure everything is connected, open the file I saved, press the play button and nothing happens. I see HOLD on ugs.
I am just having issues with my 1, 2, 3 etc work flow actions.
I’m sure I am doing something wrong, if I need to post this somewhere else on the forum please advise me.
