Title: Preparation Positioning, (Defaults) Mach 3
Post by: cncbobuk on July 03, 2020, 04:46:44 AM
Hi all, long time since I've been here having been very happy with most aspects of my Mach 3 setup for some time. However one thing has started to get to me lately. When initiating a "feed hold" mid job, maybe to adjust work holding clamps etc, then moving the head away from the job to get access, after restarting, the "Peparation Positioning" window pops up. All fine and I understand why that is, but why does it default to not starting the spindle and rapid height to zero, (top of job) first before making X and Y movements? Is there a way I can make it default to say Rapid Height +10 and spindle start? It would save me breaking a few cutters and posibility of scratching the surface of the job. Many thanks for any help, Bob
