The short version of the problem.
A student set the Z's 0 in the fixture ofset instead of the tool offset. This obviously resulted in a crash. As it crashed the student hit the E stop (Rapid was set at 100%, the student didn't know it could be slowed down).
The problem is the machine has "lost" it's cold start, it consistently comes in .080" in Z- which means the ATC doesn't line up, and thus isn't usable. Tools can be changed manually, but where's the fun in that?
(Below is second hand info)
Fadal said that most likely a coupler/coupling slipped and that it'd be $800-1k to fix.
Anyone have experiance with this and/or have a solution?
Thanks for your time
