TS-400 Z axis plunge

Post by monkey46 » Thu Jul 20, 2017 9:55 pm

Hi there

I know I'm using A very old machine but hoping someone can help.

Just done a little design in vcarve desktop, output toolpath direct to machine. Machine starts, progresses as normal then plunges to z axis into the workpiece until the machine overload kicks in. Any ideas ?

Sorry, but you must have not set your Z Zero on the machine to the top of the work, else you have set the incorrect Z values in VCarve.
If you manually move the tool to the top of the work is the axis showing 0
On VCarve you just need to set the Depths. Normally Start depth is 0.00 and Cutdepth is the distance you want to go, say 1.0mm
