Cutting with a jig 3015 nt

Cutting with a jig 3015 nt

(OP)
Is it possible to use edge detect on 12 ga, then have the head move up to cut 3" tube? How does everyone else cut using a jig? fom 3015 nt.

RE: Cutting with a jig 3015 nt

All we did while cutting tube was change the material thickness to the size of the tube plus a little extra.

(OP)
Did you do an edge detect 1st?

RE: Cutting with a jig 3015 nt

No, what we did was set the fixture and run the program with everything on a light etch (E10) so we could measure all hole locations. You can adjust the program or fixture and etch it again until it is in place. Use a marker to darken the etch before so you can see the new etch lines. Once it's good change all the cut conditions to the original settings and cut away.

RE: Cutting with a jig 3015 nt

The problem you have with some tubes is the rounded edges because the edge detect program will follow the edge down and alarm out.
