Z axis problem
« on: January 13, 2018, 01:03:51 AM »
Hi there, I am working with Bobcad cam V28 and mach 3 using a usb motion control card. I got everyting working fine but my Z axis does not pick up from one cut to another. I can jog the z axis up and down so, the motors are working. Using the wizards on Mach 3 it shows the z going up and down. any suggestions ? thanx Luan.

What post processor are you using and which USB motion control board?
