Shapeoko Pro XXl homes when I start a job

I zero my x, y, and z axis as usual before starting a job.
When I load the file and start the job(after it tells me to turn the spindle on), it homes and try’s to start running the job at the homing position.
I’ve never had this issue until now. I’m running the latest version of carbide motion.
Any help is appreciated

What CAD/CAM tool are you using?

Does it have a Datum set?

Where is the origin set in the file?

Where and how are you setting zero relative to the stock?

If you’re using Carbide Create post the .c2d file, step-by-step notes on how you are securing your stock and setting zero relative to it and managing all tool changes and a photo showing an attempt at cutting still in place on the machine, either here, or to

I am using latest version of CC.
I am setting my zeros at center of board, I’ve cut about 40 signs this way without a problem.

Just for fun check your configuration. If your are setting the origin in the center and are physically setting in the center of the project then just check the configuration. the machine may think it is moving to the center of your machine if the config is wrong. Just a thought.

Figured it out with some trouble shooting.
I was trying to add a couple of small shapes to the sign after it was initially finished. I disabled all tool paths in CC for this file then added one toolpath to add these shapes. That caused it to do this action.

I saved the design to a new file And then rebuilt my tool paths adding the two new shapes and all works good now. Not sure why it did that but am happy it is resolved

If you still have the file which caused the problem, please send it in to

Get it there this evening
