I can fire plasma and manually jog, THC runs great. But when I run gcdoe, it dives into material

It’s only allowing the Z axis to move up half the distance it should, which then drives t down the full distance into the material. Any ideas?

Increase your voltage on the proma 2 or 3v and try again.

Did you do a test cut to establish the correct voltage?

That was the voltage displayed while doing a straight cut with the THC turned off in Mach3 over a reasonable distance like 200-300mm??

It’s acting kind of weird. It’s working sometimes, other times not. Sometimes it dives, sometimes it doesn’t.

see its weird, even if i uncheck the THC boc on the plasma screen., the THC still functions the same as if the THC button was on.
