Re: Homing Error

No it’s something else. I first tried calibration using a ruler to measure the distance. Then, I made a 150mmx150mmx14mm square test piece to measure. Once I finished, I did a test run on a part for a dust shoe (see other pic). For the dust shoe I am using 2 bits. I do the first 1/8” bit, the machin...

Once I set home zero, it doesn’t go back to zero when I run the homing cycle. If I set z=0, and I travel up 20mm, and then click home, it travels back down FURTHER say 25-30mm, putting the bit into the surface. I have calibrated my XYZ, so if I tell the machine to move any direction 20mm, it travels...

Homing Issue

I have set my XYZ using $101-$102. If I tell them to move 200mm, they travel that distance. But when I try to zero them out to set up for a carve, that is creating errors. I either use a homing switch, or manually set it to the surface, zeroing out the z axis. I can do both to set the 0. But if I mo...
