I am using SO 3XXL with VcarvePro 10, 1.1 GRBL and CM 5.13. There are times that Z-Zero is lost at the beginning of the job at which point I have to re-initialize the machine to run right.
My method is:
- Initialize the machine (1st tool is loaded and bit setter is activated)
- Set z-zero with touch probe
- Set x,y zero
- Run the multi tool file
- Machine will ask for the 1st tool and go to the bit setter to measure the height.
At this point if all goes well, the rest of the job will be good no matter how many tool changes you have.
OR!!! It will either plunge too deep or not plunge deep enough, which leads me to believe that the bit setter is not measuring the height correctly.
I ran the machine without the bit setter for the weekend thinking that it was faulty (Carbide exchanged it for me since I recently purchased it) and it was spot on every time. As soon as the new bit setter arrived, I started running the machine with it and the same problems began.
@WillAdams I am seeing similar posts about this, can you guys please fix this. It has been ruining a lot of material for me as I am sure for others.
