Title: Safe Z question
Post by: garym1957 on February 13, 2020, 09:34:05 PM
I *think* this is a Safe Z question.  Its probably covered somewhere here in the half-million posts but I'm in my 60's so time is precious.

I zero my machine,  Mach 3, Chines router.
I move the X and/or Y and lower the Z to zero it on the materiel surface.
I press the GOTO ZERO button, and the machine drags the tool accross my materiel without raising the Z accecc like it once did.
I have checked the box under "Safe Z"  but whatever I did 8 years ago doesnt work anymore. (I had to replace the hard drive and reinstall everything from scratch recently).

Is there another box to xheck that i'm not seeing?

I wasnt the machine to , as it once did, raise the tool 1" before moving X or Y.

Thanks for your help!
