How far is the bit extended beyond the collet?
Is the collet properly tightened?

Are the hold down clamps on your material tight and positioned properly?

Re: Code is Not Honoring Y Axis Length for 3D Toolpaths

I need to think in terms of a physical world. (It takes me a long time to decipher all the words of code.) If no one else can answer your question, would you please post the crv file/s you are describing. This way I can look at them and give you my opinion.

Re: Uneven cut

Have you contacted Next Wave yet: https://nextwavecnc.com/support/
They have always proven very helpful.
Tramming sounds like the best idea to clean up the surfaces.
I'm stuck with the uneven ends. It would be a good idea to check with Next Wave.
