i made most of the fixture this morning and everything worked just fine. i was able to rough at various levels and came back to do a finish pass and the part came out great but a little small on the diameter. so i decided to create a finishing cycle with my cam program (onecnc btw) and here is the code it spit out. as far as i can tell the code is fine. for some reason it will do the first rough at .250 deep, which is correct. then it decides to plow into the material at the bottom of the hole to .800 deep. well this just ruined the first hole in the fixture. when i back the tool up and out and retouch it off, the tool is .300 lower than expected. ok, no problem maybe the touch off was off, then i went and ran the first hole again. it again wanted to plow to .800 deep. pulled it out and retouched off the tool again...again .300 low. rehomed the machine and retouched off the tool. now its .600 high and retouched off to the exact first number i ahd before to within .0002.

any idea whats going on here? i find it strange that it ran everything else just fine and the first set of programs i ran on it.
