preparational move
« on: August 18, 2012, 08:36:56 AM »

Once and a while, i break my cutter(1mm cutters) and i have to start somewhere in the nc. I then say start from here, choose the line, wait till mach scrolls down all the text, and then press start. Then Mach says preparational move giving positions for x,y,and z axis, till so far okay, but when you press start again the z axis coming down into the stock milling everything till its original start point.
But when the box apears (for preparational move) i cant give in any coordinates, is this a bug or do i have to do something in the settings?

Greetz Xandorian,

Sorry for the bad english ;D

You need to have Safe Z set up (from Configs menu).
