CNC origin points can be set quickly with lasers or digital cameras.In part two of this series, several techniques and tools were shown for accurately setting origin points.You can use line-of-sight, feel, extrapolation from a known diameter, edge finders, wigglers, 3D sensors and more.
Accuracy is critical and although all these tools and processes work well, setting origins can be time-consuming.So, in my own shop, I often use other methods and tools to locate and set my origin points.
As a result, I'm able to set my zero positions in 30 seconds or less.How do I do it? Three different methods.Two involve modern tools and the third is the use of the grid system that I've designed for the bed of my CNC.
All three approaches speed up the process of finding origin points.The trick with lasers is a sharp focus, good alignment and splitting the beam right on the edges of the board.Set your origin point with a cross laser A few years back, furniture maker and friend, Bob Spangler started using a cross laser as an alignment tool.
A great idea that I adopted and took a bit further.Essentially, you mount a cross beam laser on the...
