Won't cut at constant speed

Postby DMan725 » Tue Jun 19, 2018 11:18 am

I use a shark hd4 with a pendant. We use vcarve pro for software. We were cutting simple slots to make a speaker grill. The first 3 lines cut painfully slow then the next 4 cut super fast, then the last three slow again. All the design was lines across a rectangle then I made a profile toolpath that went on each line. Why would it do this?

Please post a copy of your file here on the forum so we may review your file.

What post processor are you using to save your tool paths???

zoom in on the line. is there an excessive # of nodes making up the line. The router may be trying to move from point to point like it is suppose to.
A straight line for instance should be 2 nodes. This happens a LOT when you import dxf files in which it is actually comprised of thousands of spines rather than real curves. cheers!
