    Question "RUN FROM HERE" Z- Axis goes to Limit switch???????

    Sometimes when I need to stop a cut file for some random reason I restart using the "Run from here function". When I hit "Cycle Start", the Z will travel all the way up and hit the upper limit switch. My clearance plane is set at 0.250. Can anybody guess why RhinoCam wants to do this? What am I doing wrong in Parameters to be causing this.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think that has to do with RhinoCam. Sounds to me like you need to do something different in the control. What machine and control are you running?

    Pretty unlikely that it's RhinoCAM, as it wouldn't know where you were doing a Run From Here.

    It's most likely the control software doing it. You didn't say which one you are using.

    Sorry for lack of data. Running Mach 3 like the rest of the world. DIY unit but basically a copy of K2cnc unit.

    How do you have Safe Z set up in Config > Safe Z?

    I have NO idea? I did not realize there was a SAFE Z function in Config. Let me take a look and get back to you on that. Thank you for the direction. Sounds like this will solve my problem.
