Thread: Vcarve workpiece orientation
As Gerry mentioned i reversed ports and pins, however the workpiece is now inverted and im getting narrow letter (test) also when doing to i get rounded corners, not sharp ones
ok so ive managed to get the T the right way up to where i want it.
will i have to do the steps per again due to swapping the axis, and also with the T being very narrow
Looks like your motor tuning calibration needs swapping over too. I'm guessing you've got different pitch screws on your x and y?
That should sort out the narrow letter problem.
Edit : Check your cursor keys for jogging from the keyboard too (hotkeys). You'll probably need to change those too.

The Following User Says Thank You to EddyCurrent For This Useful Post:
Awesome, im running rack and pinion on both axis. however one is on a gearbox and other two on cncrouterparts drive pulleys
You shouldn't need to change your jogging hotkeys, unless you've already changed them to a non standard configuration.
You will need to change your steps/unit, and accel and velocity settings if they are different for X and Y.
Thanks guys i now have it the way i wanted it :)
Why would you want to rotate the material? I am working every day like this, I set the Job "stock" dimensions greater than the model sizes and square, set the origin to centre, create the part I can then rotate to any angle with ctrl 9 and ctrl 0 then F9 to centre create the toolpaths and cut no problems whatsoever.
If I want a pair then copy and paste move 1 each side of centre.
If I was on txt same as above you can rotate, move, scale reverse, and only toolpath and cut what you want.
look at the time taken to rotate and screenshot only seconds.
