Using the spoil board

I watch a lot of videos and never see anyone use the machine bed to set the Z zero.
If you used your spoil board to set the Z would that eliminate cutting in to it when cuttting a part out.
Or is there some other reason it is not used.

Re: Adjusting the feed rate

Well I have look at that link several times you provided and there is nothing in it about changing the feed rate while a cut file is running.
I think the lack of of a information on all the features of the CM4 other than probing is to bad.
But that just my opinion.

Re: Adjusting the feed rate

Sorry But none of that made any sense to me.
If the feed rate on a bit in a tool path I am running is 40 IPM and I click the 10% up button 2 times what has that done to the feed rate of that tool path.

Adjusting the feed rate

With the new CM software while running the job I want to know how the 10% increase in feed rate works.
So another words If my tool speed rate is 40" pm and I want to increase it to 50 50 ft pm .how many clicks would that be..

Sagging bed

I just noticed this that the rails that run from front to back sag in the middle, I assume that that it has been that for a long time.
From side to side in the middle it saga about 1/16 or more.
Was wondering what you all have done to correct that.

Re: Touch Probe.

Will I have one other question ,I am having some issues with my current laptop, which I am sure that will require a new one.
So with that said.
Is the only thing that I will need to download is Carbide motion V4
The GRBL v1.1 reflashed the control board.
Is that right
Thanks Jeff
