I have a project to resurface, level and remove paint and other coatings, sunken panels on several doors. The panels are recessed by 1/4 inch and have a 3/16 inch offset from the inside door frame. I modified my touch probe so that I can use it in the inside left corner of the sunken panel. I can easily do a xyz probe on the corner and zero to the corner. I would really like to establish x and y min and max soft limits so that I don’t milling into the door frame. Does anyone have advice about setting this up as a project, Should I use Easel, VCarve (?) or how to program the max and min soft limits and possibility of using offsets?
I worked on essentially modeling the setup last night. We have constructed a table that allows me to position the doors in exactly the right position so that my 2D pocket will work on each door using the same template. I was also able to get my x and y soft limits to work so the the bit can’t touch the door frame. that took a bit of doing by essentially mapping out the x and y positions using a 1/4 dowel as my bit. Do you know if there is a what to program the x and y soft limits using gcode or something like that?
