Lately been having problems zeroing my Z axis. So this is what has been happening. I turn on my Shapeoko. It prompts me to connect to my Shapeoko.
It then prompts me to initialize the machine.
After it initializes it moves to front center position and prompts me to insert a new tool.
I do and click on resume and it moves over to my bit setter and does its thing.
Then moves back to front center.
At that point the machine is prompting me to load a new file or a new tooI. I still have not zeroed my X,Y or Z axis so I do that first using my Bitzero V2. I select corner first. For some reason the machine does X,Y then moves to the top and does Z. Now the tutorial I watched for the Bitzero V2 says to zero the Z axis the Bitzero V2 needs to be sitting on top of the material so I move it there and click on the Z zero option and the machine then probes for Z. After its finished I check Z zero with a piece of paper and it reads +0.094 when with a piece of paper I have the end mill at Z zero.
After that I load my file and if I click start it will prompts me to load a new tool then it moves over to the Bitzero.
What I do at that point is re-zero the Z axis with a piece of paper then start the job.
Does any one have any idea why my Bitzero is off everytime?
UPDATE: As mentioned above when I have my Bitzero V2 probe the corner of my material it then moves to the top of the material and probes for the surface. Now I was positive that the tutorial for the V2 Bitzero said that you have to lift it of the corner and place it on top of the material to probe for Z zero but I just noticed that that Z zero is correct when I let it probe for all three axis When its still on the edge of the material. I guess I need to watch the tutorial for this thing again.
