Incorrect Cuts and Sketchy Machine Movements/Sounds
So I must be doing something very wrong, because my machine is acting very strange and I am worried it might damage itself. I created a very basic cutting file to help align items to be engraved. I drew a square at each corner of an 8.5x11" file, then I went to "Cut and Fill" (http://i.imgur.com/J3JnBiQ.png
) and selected some basic settings as you can see in the linked image. I then went to "Save Toolpaths" (http://i.imgur.com/S5u0R6z.png
) and generated an .nc file. I then opened the file in Universal G-Code Sender and sent it to my printer.
Here is what comes out: http://i.imgur.com/KrYla0G.jpg
. I can upload the video if needed, the machine just makes some very jerky movements and scary noises. The first time I ran the file UG-CS said the job completed fine but the laser unit did not re-home, it stopped somewhere in the middle of the print area.
What am I doing wrong here? This should be a very simple cut to help me align my materials until the files are provided that you guys mentioned during the KS campaign.
