Auto Zero Assistance - Moves up 1inch
« on: August 28, 2017, 02:54:46 PM »
I've tried to search, but came up empty.  I also attempted a few tries with my supplied script for my machine, but only got it to work once.  I sadly then had a system failure and had to set up all software again.  Now, Auto Z only moves up 1 inch when I hit auto z.  My script is for a China CNC Router, and supplied by vendor.  Here it is, but not sure why it only moves up 1inch and then stops.   -  Any help would be much appreciated.  This is my last hurdle before being able to run my first test job.

Hi,
I am no expert at this but it looks like the code tells the tool to raise to 10mm above your gage block height ,  try increasing the 10 to 20 or 30.
Also the code is in Metric not inches.
