But sure the gantry system has some drawback but..
Regarding the vector depth you could need to calibrate the thing, mine are accurate for 59 LP inlays and the traps.

Ok lets talk...I wish I could be happier with the carvewright and sometimes when i have some spare time I try to get it to do more for me.
Usually the "spare time" is time that I should be sleeping so maybe my patience is a little thin at those times.
I would love to take a known working file and try it in my machine for accuracy but without the proper custom made sled it would be nearly impossible to replicate what a file does on one machine vs a different machine. I don't mind chiseling out corners in cavities and little things like that.
That is the way all rotary bit machines are. I do not think I am nit-picking either.
I am by no means an expert on the software but I'll bet I could fully disassemble the machine and reassemble it blindfolded.
They are kind of fun to work on when time is not an issue. Especially when the replacement parts were covered under the warranty.
Just for the record, so you don't think I hate the machine and think it is a total POS...I own a second one just as a backup. I purchased it new even after I knew what I was getting in for.
