    Not having used a UCB, I am guessing here, but I would think you need to enter the project board thickness plus the thickness of the UCB.

    I am sorry that I have not replied earlier. The carving depth is determined solely by the touch to the surface. If the machine is having trouble bobbing down the hole, I would check that the black part of the rails which are supposed to be under the board sensor is under the board sensor after the jog and that the black is black enough to fool the board sensor. Just try measuring the board and see if the the machine is measuring the board width and not the carrier width.

    I suggest you try a simple carve which has a depth less than 1/2" just to get familiar with the carrier. The machine will not bother to measure the board thickness in this case.

    You could also try your project on a scrap board down on the belts. It is possible that the problem has to do with the machine and not the carrier.

    Posting the project might help to trouble shoot.
