I am trying to carve text on my project but running into difficulties. I’m using a 6mm 60 degree v bit and am trying to carve two different sizes of text. It will carve the line of text that is larger (about 1.5") but it does not carve the smaller line of text (about 3/4" high). I moves in the correct path but the bit does not go deep enough to do the carve. I have the depth set to 3mm’s in Estlecam.
I had the path for both lines of text saved in one gcode, so I split it up with the larger text in one and the smaller in another. Same thing. The cnc goes through the motions but the cutter never gets deep enough to carve.
What am I missing here? What info would someone need to diagnose this?
