Let me look at that never gave that a thought.  I am generating the code with Vcarve so I guess it's possible.

Is there a way to have Mach3 not reset to 9 9 9 each time you load a G-Code file?  The X Y is not so much a problem but with the same tool it would be nice once Zero is established with a tool unless you change the tool it would be nice to have Mach remember the last setting for Z. 

There might be a reason for the reset but with what I have been doing it wold help a lot saving time in resetting Z each time you load a new job using the same tool.

Happy to say so finished 4 complete jobs about an hour and a half each without a hitch.  What a difference it makes when things are working correctly. Even the operator made no mistakes on this run.  Now if I can only make that a habbit.

Being new to this makes it a bit harder as there is so much to watch.  First Vcarve and it can really mess you up if you do not have setting correct then mach3 and it's controller.  And finally lasty but not least the operator. I think we are moving now.

Thank you all for your help

*l* yes, but I should know better.  I really feel stupic now.  Of all things to think of last should have been the first thing I thought of. 

The best part of this one is at LEAST I KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT!  That G650 really runs nice.  That machine has never ran this good.

This has to be chalked up to operator ERROR.  God, when I setup last night forgot to tighten TWO screwes on the lead screw.  That allowed the Z to loose setps.  Now that is stupid but that is the fact of it.

I am cutting now no problem so far and the z is behaving since I have everything tight now.  Thanks for all the help.  I have got to start thinking here.

I do not know what is happening, I cut one job fine ran two dry runs began to cut a pattern and the Z asix started cutting to deep.  .062 was after three passes .625 adn the DRO said -.062   I an hoping with the G540 there is something I have missed.

aYes it only says what you already know and are wondering why is it telling me this is abnormal.  Had me going for a while.  I hear that these steppers are rated to 90C god that is almost 200 F that's hot.  So I guess I really don't have a problem just thought I did.  I can touch them and hold them but they feel hot.  I guess that is normal my other controller was not holding like this one.  I dould turn the other controller activated by hand you won't move this one with a wrench.

Aren't the resistors in the controller?  This is a turn key controller complete with motors.  I am not sure where to look for that.
