Strange Touch utility problem
« on: May 19, 2017, 03:42:39 PM »
I've had this issue since setting up my machine. Here's what's going on...

Running M4 v 2.3233.  Using the Touch Touch off UI with a puck and alligator clip.

The first time I attempt to run the touch function, the bit comes down, makes contact with the puck and retracts 1" as I have set in the UI. My touch off puck measures .763" so the program sets the bit height to 1.763. Perfect, right?  I hit cycle start, the carriage moves to its starting point, but the Z height is now 1" too high and therefor never gets down to the stock.  I stop the program, rewind the code, and go through the bit setting process again, only this time the Touch Off UI sets the bit height to .763. I now have to click on that field, type 1.763, hit enter, and now it will run correctly.

What the hell is going on here?
