I came upon this after google Brent's suggestion of doing auto-leveling. For Mach3 and Linuxcnc you can setup to probe your spoil board or a rough shaped surface in a grid pattern, then use the software to merge the results with another g-code file to correct for un-even surfaces.


I'd have to think that just leveling the spoil board would be less work in the end, but I guess if you were trying to get evenly carved results on a non-even work-piece (i.e Rough sawn lumber, or a log), it might be a good tool to have at your disposal. ;)

Looks like it can also Read, Scale, Split, Rotate, and Wrap gcode, so might be hand for those as well if you're needing a tool for it.

If you check out the link, He does use it to engrave a pattern the curved top of a mouse.

Could see there being some other interesting uses for it.
