Z axis with it's own mind

Post by DougN »

I had posted a while ago regarding a problem I was having with my Z axis taking off, plunging and generally doing what it wanted. I thought I would post a follow-up.
First... kudos to the Vectric support team. Especially Chad McCarty. That man has great patience with a frustrated user.

For reference to any that may encounter this problem, the culprit was my programming the feed rate for my finish cut too fast. I had it running at 200. Chad told me to slow it down to 100 maximum. Works great. I never would have guessed that was the problem. Plus he sent me firmware updates.

Running consistently good like an Axiom should. Thanks Vectric!
