New to Axiom - trying to learn all the controls and what they do.
Tool Set - Enables Z-Axis automatic toolset function Does this function do the same thing as setting the Z axis off the puck. Like the Menu + On/Off tool touch off operations? If not what does it do?
Repeat Machining - Repeat last machining process. Will this repeat the last toolpath that just finished. Some times I will do a clean up pass with the same toolpath. Will this just repeat the last one?
Yes, Repeat Machining does redo the last toolpath process. To me it's a toss-up on using this and actually resubmitting my last toolpath. I usually just resend my last toolpath. Where I find it really handy is recutting a single part over and over. Sometimes I'm trying to use up a board cutting small parts. I'll machine one, then move the bit to a clear section, hit Set X-Y, then hit the Repeat button. Repeat until board used up. I'll keep the sample from the first cut to move around the board and find a clear spot. My toolpath start will be set to the bottom left of the part.
I have my toolset speed set to 150. Slow is ok, because I place the puck NEXT to where the bit XY is, then lower manually until about right, slide the puck under, then hit the Toolset. Takes about 5 seconds, very fast, and I don't crash the bit into the puck.
