2010 screenset probing question
« on: June 13, 2019, 07:06:38 PM »
I love the 2010 screenset - I dont think my question it about it particularly. But when I use the probe function to zero my tool against a workpiece, the program changes the machine coordinates as well.  So the fixed tool plate is no longer in the correct place, soft limits no longer work, because the machine seems to home to the new zero.

Know what I mean? What am I missing here?

The only way for the machine coordinates to change is to home the machine, so probing should not be changing the machine coordinates.

Can you try to explain in detail exactly what you're seeing, or make a video?
