End mill not raising between plunges (LINK)

Post by CJNOMNOM » Fri Jan 01, 2016 6:00 pm

For some reason the Gcode on this project (2nd test, i'm new) is not raising on the travel paths, but does on the letters. Any ideas? I did my hello world and it worked fine, if not perfect. So i'm lost a to why this one isn't working. I DID remove the G40 at the top of the Gcode (Winston's direction)

INFO:
Gcode created in Makercam

Pics , gcode, svg, and screenshots in dropbox link:

PS: I created the SVG in Illustrator, and when imported into makercam, the words are correct but the shapes aren't. lost on that one too.

Sounds like your acceleration is too high, and can’t raise on rapids.
