Do you mean if I used a tool that was too long, or a z clearance that was to much, or material that was too thick? Wouldn't that be the case with any way you set it up? I say this because the program runs fine the way it is setup and programmed, everything works, I was just getting that warning. I think I have it fixed, I received an updated version of the mach3.exe and it seems to have taken care of the problem, ran two programs and no warning message. Thanks for the help.

That would explain why I never saw the warning as I was using the latest IC version to test.

I ran the Gcode in Mach3 and never saw the warning UNLESS I moved into the controlled zone. IF I Refhome the machine then offset the work coords to where they should have been it ran fine.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Well thanks for your time and assistance. I've been running the machine this morning and everything is working as it should.

My next endeavor will be editing my tool touch off script so that it touches off twice and compares the numbers against a tolerance value I can set; if it's over the set value than its stops and I get a message informing me of the discrepancy. I'm hoping it's been done before and I can find some code to work off of, I have no idea where to start.
