I am trying to create a project to simplify making a replacable wasteboard for a CNC router I have on order from Sienci Labs. I intend to use a grid of threaded inserts. My plan is to rout 1/2" holes in the 3/4" MDF so I can then remove the wasteboard, manually complete the holes (thus not damaging the table surface) and place the inserts from the underside. I have figured out how to use the array to generate the required circles in the sketch and use them to create the pockets.
The attached project file has been edited several times, so it's larger than expected.
Somehow, I can't get the pocket operation working; my understanding is clearly deficient. I would think that using a 1/4" endmill and the path pocket would just plunge the endmill in as required for each selected bottom face (I generally am very conservative in plunge settings). The generated gcode does absolutely nothing. A drilling operation seemed even less useful. Any help in pointing out what I have overlooked would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
- gcode, with extension changed so I can attach it
