I have 2 problems with using the jog and zeroing functions of Carbide Motion. These problems have been there for every version of Carbide Motion that I have used.
The first is that if I jog to a position, and then set the zero on one of the axes (say “X”). Then when I drop out of the zeroing function, I can no longer jog using the arrow and page keys. I then have to click on the icons on the screen. That is annoying, but I can deal with.
The second one is more serious. When I set the Z-axis zero it never takes the first time. What I do now is set X, then Y, then Z. Then I close Carbide Motion, open it, and double check that the zeros have taken. The Z axis never takes. I then redo the Z, and I’m good to go. Before I started doing this, the tool always crashed when it moved to the zero starting point.
I am running Carbide Motion on a PC under Windows 7. I think I have the latest version, but this has happened on all of the versions that I have used.
Any thoughts on what is going wrong?
