Don't forget to check the Z axis as well(;-)

Speaking of Z axis........It was slamming down to the plate, now it is stopping before it gets all the way down. Specs on the Z are :
Z axis is up/down and settings are lower.

 I feel like I am getting close to getting a part cut. LOL.

And next I get to play with velocity. It makes a whinning noise while makeing a cut. :)

Bring the velocity down to about 200 accel about 25 and see what happens.

Need to get the Z to stop hitting the metal before it fires and drags on the sheet. Any ideas? Thanks.

DId you check to see IF the Z moves the correct distance?

Well now it is different (guess I done something else wrong, but it doesn't hit the sheet anymore. It cycles from the top of travel and stops  1 1/4  inches above the sheet. way too high but better  than it dragging on the metal. BTW.     Z  travels about one inch.
 I wish i could control the height manually!!

YO have not answered the question(;-) Does the Z move the distance programmed ?  UNtill you have ALL the axis's moving the correct distance it won't work correctly.

DO you have a floating Z that has a switch to find the top of the material?
