I've been having this problem for awhile but have always been too busy to get to the root of the problem.
Here's the problem, if I'm not supplying enough info. please let me know what else is needed to diagnose.
I set the "Z" height off the workpiece with the "Z" plate & the screen shows +1.00 when it's set. (I seem to remember that number used to be +.5" I think).
Then when I start the job (rough pass on a 3-d sign) the tool raises to +1.6", then heads to the first cut.
When it stops & the "Z" axis plunges it stops at +1.25" and starts an air pass.
I've tried everything I can think of to get it to make a cut, I have the tool cut depth set at .25"
My guess is I just have a setting messed up somewhere along the line but I can't for the life of me figure out what I did to change the setting.
Any ideas, or any missing info I can provide to get to the bottom of this.
I've got a couple 2'x6' cedar signs I really need to get out fast.
(of course this type of thing always seems to happen when I'm in a deadline situation)
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
I tried to post this in the ShopBot forum, but can't log in, been one of those days.
I'm using the ShopBot software to cut the job. Machine is a ShopBot PRT96
