i have bought for the first time a router kit with er 25 spindle . it has a dsp 501 controller with usb flash disk . i also bought the vectric vcarve pro 6. i set up the table and the axis and directions all works perfectly well but im facing problems with the following
when i try to place z zero on surface top , it will show the cut portion as - number since z up is + direction. i make the drawings and convert it to g code mm.tap . when i place the file in the dsp controller and try to process the file , it will give me z- over limit and doesnt process the file , it will only process the file when z 0 is from table top and that is a problem and its very important to have it from surface top
another problem is im not being able to see the spindle rpm and im trying to figure out how to adjust the spindle speed while processing . the spindle is connected to a delta inverter and for some reason i cant put on/off the spindle from the dsp controller even though there is an on/off on the dsp .
i need to know how ti work around these problems and if someone could also tell me what rpm should i set for hard material like thin steel sheet and plywood
