So I’ve had my nomad 3 for a week now, I’ve done several jobs in different materials. Im very careful to set my zeros accurately in Carbide motion.
I set Z above my stock with a piece of paper and I start the job. I have also tried starting the spindle and lowering the it until I see a touch into the material.
it seems that about a third to half of the time, I start a jew job after zeroing, it probes, looses its zero and then plunges deep into the stock breaking my end mills as soon as its done with my VERY slow plunge rate. for what its worth I did have it once do the opposite where it set zero about 0.5mm above my stock because it finally kissed the stock on the last pass of a 0.4 pocket.
Im trying to figure out what’s going on because tonight alone I broke $60 in endmils.
A couple points: 1, I tighten the collet nut very well. 2; I have the Z set to stock top on carbide create.
Any other ideas?
