Thank you for that...it seems to be working now, thought I would see if it would do a drawing...I made sure the spindle didnt turn on and it has started drawing :)

So which button do I click to manually set z for the job, as normally I would just put down my probe and hit auto zero, the hit start, it would return home then execute the gcode.

In my test I inserted the pencil into the collett..lowerd the z axis to 1mm above the material using a plastic packer.mmy gcode was set to -1mm...but I clicked remember under auto tool zero...thinking this would remember my z height....wrong...I lifted the z axis clicked run...the mill moved across and just pushed the pencil into the board...so I guess I want to know how to manually set the z tool height without auto zero function.

Thanks for your help :)

Mach3 and G-Rex / Set z axis to zero with pen or pencil inserted in mill

Hi All

Just wanting to know if and how to set z manually in mach3 before running the gcode.
I want to insert a pen or a pencil set zero and run the gcode, I have the auto zero feature with the sensor but I dont believe that will work with a non metalic tip in the router, so is it possible to lower the z axis and set the 0 height before running a job. I am new to mach3 and just crushed 1 pencil testing :P so thought i would ask

Hope it makes sense
