Haven't been able to get Z to creep at all today. Mills been running for over 3 hours, 2 in a static mode and the third while I machined in X and Y with Z in a fixed position cutting some parts to length. I made a line on the belt and it's in the same place it's been since I made it.
Real concerned about getting into something that could be messed up with errant Z moves. Got some drilling and pocket milling to do, so I'll see how that goes.
The thing that has me most puzzled is the encoder showed no movement on the dro while I could watch the pulleys turn and the head physically come down and witness it in the cutter removing material on the end. I'm not getting my brain around that at all. And the worst part was I could tell it to jog in Z yesterday and the dro would reflect the move. Just nothing from the dro while it was creeping before or after those jogs.
