Restart after moving spindle
« on: October 01, 2009, 05:02:03 PM »
Hey all, as my job was cutting I had to E stop, cause it was going to hit a fixture.  I had to jog the spindle out of the way to reset the fixture. Now I am a little screwed (I think).

I did a GOTO ZERO
Its looks good.
Then I jogged to a SAFE Z
Located the line to starton, and clicked RUN FROM HERE
Then CYCLE START
As for the prep moveI left it as is - however, it looks like it wants to skate diagonally across the piece and muck up what is already cut.

Should I be adjusting the prep move for a "safe Z"?

thanks

You should set up safe Z, I prefer machine coords but others prefer work coords or even incremental, you will find it from cONFIG MENU.

What will then happen when you do a Run From Here is it will use the safe z, move to the X and Y coords in the prep move box and then the Z will lower to where the prep move says it will go.
