Bit plunges beeper then is programmed

I need some help(again).

I will design a cut path that is only going 0.100 inches but when I land the g-code and start the job the bit plunges to at least .5 or .75 of an inch.

I have looked over my setting and I did not find anything wrong with my g-code.

any help is greatly appreciated.

Things which will cause this:

  • disconnect between where you are setting the origin in the file and how you are setting origin relative to the stock
  • changing the endmill w/o using the interface in Carbide Motion
  • lost steps on retract due to excessive safety/retract height
  • lost steps due to an electrical wiring issue

Please check these things — if you don’t find anything obvious to address, write in to
