Getting different cut depths

Post by VirtutekVT »

Hey folks -

1) I just set up my HD5 and started making some small signs. I've noticed that on both pieces I've done so far, my "Clear" cut (1/8" end mill) is cutting about 1/16" lower than any of my other bits, and I can't figure out why? My models and toolpaths are all set with the same exact depth of cut and I zero my z-axis after each bit change, using the Shark touch plate.

2) My models don't allow me to do the Virtual-Zero option if I select it in the pendant. Is there something I need to do to allow that to work?

Thanks!
