    I tried to make a level surface. I have cut a few smaller things, but this is my first big cut.
    Could I have a setting wrong in the firmware or did I not use Estlcam correctly?
    I think the gcode wants me to make a tool change. I don’t need to I just want to continue to finish with the tool in place.
    I am using the beta firmware, Ramps 1.4

    I was expecting the entire area to be smooth.

    I found a website http://www.easel.com
    you can generate gcode and download print. I was able to make my flat work area, and for the heck of it I carved my name into it.

    Change your step over to 50% or even 45%, double check the tool # in the roughing and finishing box. you might want to make shallower passes. You just want to skim the surface quickly.
