I have recently become interested in CNC routers and have decided to try building a LowRider. I have printed all of the 3D plastic parts successfully and am now moving on to the flat plates.
I have access to a CNC router machine and Vectric Vcarve Pro. I imported the 611 plate file and created toolpaths and was able to cut it successfully.
I then tried to cut the Yplate and ran into problems. I had 3 toolpaths. The first one cut the screw holes. The second toolpath cutout the hole for the motor. The final toolpath cut the outside diameter. (I had done the same with the 611 plate).
The CNC cut the screw holes with no prolem. But, when it cut the hole for the motor, it shifted a nit in the X direction so that it wasn’t central between the screw holes. Then, when it cut the outside perimeter, with each of the 11 passes, it moved slightly further in the X dirextion. Everything looked fine in the toolpath preview.
Any ideas on what might have caused this, or how to correct it?
