I just purchased Varve pro, uploaded the PP from Neil Ferreri, (thank you very much). I created my first toolpath using vcarve, but when I ran it, after I hit the resume after the pause to turn on the spindle, the Z axis dove .75" below the set z as it was moving the what looked like XY zero, I shut off the machine before any damage. Two more attempts at running it were the same. Please have a look at my g-code and let me know what you think. I pasted a small portion from notepad, web site wouldnâ€™t allow .gcode file.

Thanks,

Rick Jackson
