General Mach Discussion / Re: Cut2D and Z-Axis

I am using the Mach2/3 post processor.

General Mach Discussion / Cut2D and Z-Axis
« on: May 17, 2009, 03:11:57 AM »
I'm using a Zenbot, Mach 3 and Cut2D. Hardware is working fine.  I would like 0,0,0 (home) to be with tool (Z) at highest. This means max depth is at -4.00 inches.  My manually coded programs work as expected.
However, when I create my toolpath in Cut2D, the lowest point is zero and I can not set it to a negative number. When the G-Code is generated, all the Z references are from 0 to +4.00 instead of -4.00 to 0. Am I forced to set my zero for the Mach3 at the tabletop and give up homing ?

Or is it possible to home to a positive number? I'm sure other people are using Mach3 and Cut2D - how are you handling this?
