Defining the ContactByTouch target area:
A ContactByTouch target area is defined within the QCJ5 workspace. This target area is the location that the machine will travel to set the material height, and tool offsets. This area should be as close to the location of the board to be milled as possible. To define the area, simply click on the “Tools” menu, select the “ContactByTouch” submenu. Select the “Set target area”. Notice your cursor has now changed. Now simply draw a rectangle where you would like the target area to be defined by left clicking & dragging the mouse. Place the Target area in a location where the outer ring of the pressure foot and the tool bit can contact the conductive board material. NOTE: To ensure proper functionality, you must keep the copper board material isolated from the table top. You can use the red handle deburr tool to remove the copper around the 1/8” pinning holes. This keeps the metal pin from shorting to table ground.
These same features can be found on the toolbar located on the upper right of your IsoPro work area.
