Yo Fellas,  Excuse me if this sounds obvious but, have you checked the "Safe Z setup" in the config menu?  You can make your safe Z reference to machine coords OR work coords.  If you are referenced to work coords and your work offsets change from job to job then so will your safe z.  Hopefully that made sense, if not, it will when you look at the safe z setup screen.

HTH,

Sid

Sid, The problem is happening even when I run the same part over and over with no offset change. I checked the safe Z settings. I was able to make it better by setting it to incremental rise. Now it only changes things the first time I hit the rewind button. After that it seems to be all right. I was playing with the settings with the mill offline. I will try it with the mill running in a day or 2.
Thanks all for or help

Are you using a stepper or a servo for your Z axis?

There was a problem starting with V2.42 that envolved the stop , rewind, regen functions that could cause a dro reset. It was fixed at version 2.50. Try the upgrade first to see if it goes away.

I agree w/ Vmax, try the update first but, I kinda also think it sounds like you are missing steps on your down cuts.  That would explain why Z is raising up higher in a random way.

Regards,
Sid

I went back to version 2.065 and the problem went away.
Vmax twice you suggested upgrading to version 2.50. Were do I get version 2.50? Is it a future release?

It is in the downloads section, 2.52 now.  :) Below the lock down versions. See where the cursor is pointing to in the screen shot.

Sorry Guys, Art used to label the updates, I guess he stopped doing it. I will pay more attention in the future.
