Good to hear that your problem is resolved!
Not having set the Z-Axis has caught at least three people out recently, so you certainly aren’t alone in having this sort of issue.
Perhaps @robgrz can get someone make some changes to Carbide Motion to do something like one or both of the following:
- Upon connection, check to see if this CM installation has ever sent its configuration. If not, show the settings window.
- If not settings have been sent, make sure there is no default for machine or Z-Axis in the settings and the user is forced to select one prior to sending configuration.
It might be helpful if the Z-Axis names are re-described in new versions of CM. Z-Plus is now standard (only really mentioned on the shop page on one line), but it’s likely people might not think something with the word “Plus” in it is in fact standard. So perhaps some extra words like:
- Legacy (Belt Drive Z)
- Standard (Z-Plus)
- Heavy Duty (HDZ)
