First Time Cutting

Postby Migmoral » Mon Sep 28, 2015 4:34 pm

Okay, so I got my nebula all set up. Loaded a file and opened it up in Linux.
Now I feel a little foolish asking this, but how do I go about setting up (where do I place it) my workpiece on the bed and setting up the router to start cutting.

You can put it any where you want. If you are coming off the center move the bit to the center of the work piece if you coming off the edge move to the edge. Bring down the z axis and use a piece of paper under the bit move the paper back and forth and bring down the z very slow until you can't move the paper any more. Now go to the computer and set your g54 in x y and z
I love my Nebula

Great, got that. File opened in Linux. So I ran it but getting this message: "Program exceeds machine maximum on axis Z". Option to run anyway or cancel.
