First make a rectangular washing path map of the size of the countertop, and the depth should not be too deep. The key point is to find the Z low point on the table when setting the knife. Just walk for a while manually, see where you can’t wash it, and set the Z origin at the Z low point. The overlap rate should be high, so that the washed table will be smoother.

Method 1: The table top is usually made of PVC board, draw a distance shape with the same size as the table top in the software, and then wash the bottom in 2D, the same as the usual two-color board.


Change to a thicker twist knife, and it will be faster to wash. The depth of the knife should be determined according to the situation. Basically, it is better to have a deep bottom to no concave place. Just clean it up after washing.


Method 2: Use a special bottom-cleaning knife.


Find the Z low point of the machine table and lower the knife to a depth of 0.5-1mm, and then start the spindle to run back and forth manually. Note: Choose different feed speeds according to the material of the table.
