Z crash after restart due to tool break

I always start off by saying I LOVE my Nomad. I bought it as a back up but it quickly became my #1 machine.

I have had this issue a few times and would like to find a way to resolve it.

During an engraving run a bit can break. I replace the bit, zero the new bit on top of the part, start the job again, the new bit buries into the work.
I can’t understand this since I just put the new bit on top of the work and told Carbide Motion, this is your new zero. Just as I did the bit that broke.

There was a time the bit broke and to avoid that issue I turned the machine off then on and started the initial startup process of machine wake up with the new bit. That worked fine for Z but X and Y were off a little.

So, what can be done that if a engraver bit breaks a new engraver bit can be inserted to finish the job without scraping materials?

Thank you

There used to be people who answered these questions, is that not the case anymore?

Let me try.

When I brake a bit and restart the program in CM, I re-zero the job completely.

Yes CM saves the zero even if you shut down BUT in my experience “X” and “Y” are off enough to fudge up my cut. Generally I disable paths that are already completed to reduce the air cut time
