z axis problem
« on: March 15, 2011, 08:47:55 PM »
Due to material warpage or table eneveness, my z axis sometimes hangs on the part when making long moves (torch off) while cutting, causing the part to move.  How can I increase the height of the torch (z axis) during these moves?

Normally the height of the Z axis is controlled from your G Code.
