Hi,
that is normal, machine co-ord zero at the top of Z travel. When you drive the Z axis done the machine co-ords are negative.
When you get to the surface that you wish to machine zero the Z axis work co-ords. Then a negative Z will take you below the surface ie
cutting and positive Z takes you above the surface.
