I am running the Pro XXL. Recently I feel that I may have a software issue. When running a project last week my project came lose and caused some issues. Now every time I go to run a project the Z axis seems to be off. I will zero all my axis points on the work piece. But when I run the program my machine does not lower to the correct Z point. It will start work several inches above the material. I have tried different approaches to include running a different project that has successfully in the past, creating a simply test project, and continuing to reset all axis points to zero. Any ideas why my machine when it runs a project is now running several inches above my work piece?
All of the Z-axis wiring is connected and good condition. The Z-axis responds when I move the router up and down when setting the zero.
For my test on MDF, I have the origin at the surface in the center of the file.
I have tried to “reset” the operation using the manual provided when I first bought the equipment. However, this did not fix it.
Attached is a photo showing my screen of zeroing all axis point and the relative position of the bit on the material. The other is a video of the router moving after it has gone through the bit setter step.
