another safe Z question
« on: March 13, 2015, 12:07:50 PM »
After a lot of looking around I still cant find the answer that I can understand
I can ref all home   machine moves z all the way up then y to the rear of machine base then x to far right
that all works fine
then i go to 0     z goes up   x and y move to the proper set point and Z comes down to top of part
i think that is right
now i load code from Bob Cad and hit start
i want the z to go up to a safe distance above the part  but x and y start while z is at top of part   we reach the plunge spot and z will go up  and then down
to proper cut depth and runs fine
it is just the start with z down that is issue
what am i doing wrong
please show me the way to solve this

Edit your BobCAD post processor so it does what you want. The g-code is telling the machine what to do.
