I printed out some clamps to do a tool change and am getting my Z axis home with a feeler gauge. I’ve been running a lot of test cuts today and I’m having issues getting the second tool to line up. I have the clamps attached tight and both X and Y axis are butted up against them. I measure Z axis with a feeler gauge after each tool change and lower it the thickness of the gauge.
The guy I bought this file off of said to cut the 90° v bit 3mm deep and for the straight bit give it a 3mm finish. Now I’ve done this and it leaves an area that is not cut between where the straight bit andd V bit cut. Am I suppose to select a finishing tool? I’ve tried to do that, but it cut into where the v-bit was. In the cut labeled 1.6 I created a carve and then created a hole I gave it a 1.6mm finish allowance and zoomed really far in it appears to stop at the center of where the v bit was cutting. After I did that I deleted the carve and cut it as you can see it didn’t go far enough.
In fact most of the time the second cut will be off about .5mm. So what am I doing wrong?
The second picture is the file I have except I have a different branch of the military on mine
EDIT: I just realized I posted a similar question the other day. I’m sorry, but hey if anyone has any additional advice I’d welcome it. I’ve seen a lot of flags cut this way.
