Achieving high precision on your CNC machine can be a daunting task, but with this handy tool, at least you won't have to do any tedious math.
Although the calculations are simple, it's always easy to make a mistake and there's no reason to use human brainpower when we have the power of computers.
You don't need the whole form. Only use the parts You need. If you're unsure of what measurements to take and where to input the values, check out the video for help.
If your machine isn't already configured, you can fill out these values to get started with the initial configuration. You need to configure something in order to be able to calibrate it.
With the initial configuration, you can now calibrate your machine with actual measurements. Use a long known widget and make sure its length is parallel to the axis.
Doing the calibration three times and taking the average will help reduce some of the errors in your measurements and other factors.
There are many other things to consider in order to achieve high precision and accuracy with your CNC machine, but at least this part is done!
