I love CC over Makercam, but my first use of it I’m perplexed by one thing.
Looking in the gcode, whenever the bit has to move across the piece, it sets Z=0 (instead of raising it ABOVE the piece by a reasonable clearance) before moving to the new X,Y. If I’m not perfectly level, this can drag the bit across the piece, scarring my work.
Other than manually search/replacing on the gcode file, I can’t find a setting in Carbide Create to set the ‘raise above piece Xmm when moving’ setting.
Anyone else had this problem?

X76.430Y19.896 - cutting
G0Z0.000 - raise to top of piece
G0X108.111Y21.435 -big move, drag spinning router bit across top of piece = scar if not level and Z=0 is really a little above the piece.
G1Z-0.211F64.1 -drop before next cutting cycle
