Carbide V7 CM 566 does not know were zero is?

when you probe XYZ then you start the run the router goes 8’’ to the right of zero and starts cutting air. what’s up? probed XYZ again and it still goes to the right.

When your zero is set and the position starts somewhere else it is almost always in the CAD software where your zero is set. For instance you think you set the origin at the lower left but you instead set the center. So if you set your zero on the lower left corner but CC thinks the origin is at the center it will not cut where you THINK it is set for. Check your origin in your CAD software and likely will fix it.

Please post your .c2d file, and step-by-step notes on how you are securing your stock and setting zero relative to it and a photo showing an attempt at cutting still in place on the machine.

thats were it was in the center. thank you for the information !

When you make a mistake you are not likely to repeat it for a long time. Now when you get old like me you forget you ever knew something and start repeating mistakes. That is what makes us human and not machines.
