Really weird issue with Estlcam… Just before the finishing cut it tries to make a full depth full width cut along the side of the piece it’s cutting… This of course is way too much and causes the bit to veer and gouge the piece…
The part I’m cutting is essentially a box with some rounded troughs cut in (a box for turned pens). I made the part in Fusion360 and exported an STL which I then pull into Estlcam to generate G code. Cutting at 1.5mm depth and 12 mm/sec with a 1/8" 2 flute rounded up cut bit.
It’s not skipping steps because the rest of the box is cut fine and the finishing pass works fine.
I cut it with the length along the Y axis and then tried it along the X axis. It does the same wonky cut at the same place either way so I know it’s something Estlcam is doing and not hardware.
Thankfully Ive been testing on 2x4 fir and not the aged pecan the order calls for.
Anyone seen this before or know what setting would cause Estlcam to try and dig in like that?
