Go To Zero "Z" last?
« on: November 06, 2012, 12:43:47 PM »
Hi, I'm having an issue with my CNC.
When I hit "Go To Zero" the machine moves the "X" and "Y" simultaneously to zero, then it will move the "Z" axis to zero.
I would like the "Z" to go to zero first, then have the "X" and "Y" move.
Can anyone help?

Go to Config > Safe_Z Setup and select ‘Allow Safe_Z Moves’. Now Goto Z should move Z to the value entered in the Safe_Z box, then move X and Y to zero, and finally move Z to zero.

The reason it IS the way it is . You would never want to put Z at zero(top of material BEFORE you move XY into position.

Just a note make sure you understand HOW you have SafeZ setup. It can get ya when you are not looking.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
