Hi all, Thanks for taking the time to look this over and sorry for the novel. I am having some V-Carve issues and I'm beyond frustrated at this point after significant troubleshooting. Background on my machine: C-Beam XL MKS Sbase v1.3 contoller with smoothieware Aspire/V Carve Software latest version Dewalt 611 Router Z height set with probe Cuts done as V-Carves on this issue. Here's a picture of the issue I am dealing with. The board is oriented the same way it would be as if it was sitting on the machine with you in front of it. I am hoping someone has seen this before. So you can see the top part of the N is leaving that part sticking out. Each N was cut with different settings. First photo was cut with a whiteside 1541 1/4" 60º V Bit So here is what I tried to fix the issue first: Verified V Wheels were all making contact and no abnormal play or slop Tried a new whiteside 1/4" 60º V Bit Tried various bit angles in aspire Tried different speeds & feeds down to painfully slow Cut as text and converted to curves Adjust Depth of Cut down to .5mm per pass with same result Adjusted acceleration in smoothie config to lower numbers than anything I've used before Adjusted junction deviation Trammed router to within .01inch New spoilboard planed Tried changing stepover and final pass stepover Different materials tried Different letters (N and O were most vivid Verified depth of cut is accurate to within .02mm when using Z probe Verified X/Y axis movements are accurate to within .02mm So then I tried using a wider V-bit. This time a freud 1/2" x 60º. The results weren't good but are almost the opposite as before. Those same sections are being cut too deep instead of leaving too much material. See photo: As you can see I have exhausted many things and haven't had much luck. I'm not sure if I should be ripping the whole machine apart and rebuilding each axis again, digging deeper into the control board being the culprit, or looking more into the software settings. I am open to any suggestion at this point. If you've read to this point, thank you for your time and any suggestion at this point is not a dumb one.
