Yes at lunch right now will post when I return.
I think we are close too. I have full function during g code, it’s just seems like it’s forgetting where my zero is for that work piece in reference to the Z AXIS. It will work on the first cut perfect, sometimes the second cut perfect, but then it goes for the third cut and dives itself into the material. I have adjusted the thc min and max as well. It seems to work in those perameterss until it decides to dive itself.

Torch dive is usually a plasma thing not a Mach thing, you are close but this can be a pain.

Is the metal flat?
Is the return lead clamped to the metal not the table?
What plasma supply do you have?
Bridgeport Mill, Mach3 V062, CSMIO-IP/A controller, AC Servo Drives.
Plasma table, Mach3 V062, Step motors, C&CNC THC.

Well it’s changing it’s Z by itself in Mach. Wherever I set the Z, in reference to home, and then Zero out, run gcode, it tries to dive but I stop it before it gets to metal, then when I press return to Z, it goes all the way back To x,y 0,0 then when the Z makes it descent it tries to go lower than where I set the Z.

It seems like it’s making the Z lower than what i set it to..

But yes metal is flat. 10 ga MS cold rolled, lead clamped to table but that’s how I’ve always run it for the last 4.5 years.. I have thermal dynamic cut master a60. Been running it for years with no issues of plasma dive until now

It’s setting my Z height at zero -.7 units from where I set it before running the Gcode.
