I don't understand half of what you all are talking but it sure is interesting.  I hope my problem is permanently solved if not the solutions seem endless and sure have a lot of things to try.

Made the adjustment to file and seems that the problem is solved.  I just cant understand why the plate thickness had to be modified but after auto Z setting several times and MDI to a Z height of .001" I check it with a feeler and I'm pretty darn close.

Again thanks for all the help I had no idea where to start.

Did some testing this morning and found that when I z auto z set the machine it seems that it repeats very well and the setting is off the same each time so If I correct the plate size in file to compensate where enter metal plat thickness this should correct the problem.  The "G92Z0.182" would become "G92Z0.192" I appreciate all the input from everyone.  I'm not real up on changing things I know nothing about but with all the suggestions I'm learning
Thanks to all

How do I use this ?  It seems it is a txt file and I would use it as if it were a G code program file.  Am I correct?

General Mach Discussion / auto Z setter adjusting
« on: June 20, 2010, 05:55:45 AM »
I have noticed that auto z setting is not accurate on our router.  In the near future plans are to to do some engraving so z tolerance. will be very important.  How do I go about correcting this.  Is there a setting that can be adjusted in the program and if so where is it.  We now use a .125 plate and it seems to be off about .0100.  This hasn't been a problem since any work we did was not critical on the Z. Any help would be a blessing, thanks in advance.

I have a funny feeling that someone has tampered with settings.  but I'm wondering if windows may have something to do with the problem but I have no idea what modules or files in windows work with mach3?

Hopefully on tuesday i'll be able to get back into the problem.
