All, I just joined the AXIOM forum. I look forward to learning from all of you and sharing if I come up with something I think might benefit other AXIOM cnc users.
If any of you live in the Denver area I would like to make your acquaintance and share knowledge specific to the AXIOM Pro 5 machine. If you are interested to share information about using the AXIOM machine, please post a reply to me and we can exchange location information.
I have just begun to use my AXIOM Pro 5 AR-6 machine. Although I used a NWA CNC Shark for about 10 years before this, I am struggling to learn the specific of properly setting up Gcode from a design I made in Aspire correctly on the machine.
I purchased both the 4.2W laser and the 4rh axis.
My first test using the laser were disappointing, engraving too light, then I discovered the laser fan was not working. JPTech has sent me a replacement laser controller and told me without the fan the laser output power drops to about 30%. I have not yet installed the laser controller. I plan to do that this week.
My first effort to use the 4th axis showed me I do not yet know how to set up my work piece to match the Z-zero in the Aspire G-code. I tried to run the Vectric rounding gadget but the bit cut 1/2" deeper than just rounding my square stock. I followed the instructions in the Vectric rounding gadget tutorial exactly so I conclude I do not yet know how to set the Z-zero on the machine. I st the Z-zero in both the Aspire design and on the machine to be the axis of the cylinder, 75mm above the table.
I would appreciate guidance and I would like to meet any AXIOM users in the Denver area.
