What is the toolpath you are cutting?

Is the tool pulling out?

How are you setting zero relative to the stock?

I did a little math. The HDZ gets 320 steps per MM and the Z-Plus gets 200 steps per MM. Are you sure you set the correct Z when running the machine setup.

320/200=1.6 .375/.235=1.59 (1.6 if your measurement was just a little bit off). So I would suggest you go back through the machine setup and make sure you picked the correct Z.

The HDZ has a large block at the bottom of the ball screw with a bearing. The Z-Plus has a stud with a hole in it and no bearing. The lead screw on the Z-Plus just goes through the hole without really touching it.
