Torch tip is lowered before it gets to starting point
« on: April 08, 2010, 11:43:35 AM »
In our gcode it tells our torch tip to lower to steel height and then it will move to its first starting point. Then at the end it stays at steel height and moves back to home. Why could this be and how do we change it. If I manually input my z code at the end of cutting it will return home and lift the torch but if I dont it will stay steel height. Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you

You could try setting the 'Safe Z' from the config menu. Then it will raise the Z Axis before moving home.
