Z Offset in Carbide Create?


I am trying to engrave painted and varnished wood, and I would need each Z position command to be a tiny bit deeper than would be normally necessary to make up for the extra varnish layer. I can do this in Fusion 360 with the Top Height setting when engraving. Is there a way to do it in Carbide Create as well?
Thank you for your help!

You could do it by setting your Z zero to stock bottom, and using a stock thickness value that is the real (measured) stock thickness minus that offset.

Or you can stay with Z zero at stock top, zero normally, and then jog Z down by the offset you mentioned and reset Z zero, just before running the cut.
