View Full Version : Adjusting Z dept AFTER Z-Zeroing?

There is probably a easy way to do this, but I can't figure it out... After one Z-zeroes to the material that's going to be cut, and running a test problem to check Z depths, is there an easy way to do a fine adjustment without re-programming the file? In otherwords adjusting the Z-height on the fly.....weather it is during a cut (on temperary pause) or after Z-zeroing?

Not during a cut, but what I'll do if I want to lower the Z axis, say .005", is move the Z to 1.00, then using the [V]alue [A]xis command reset the Z value to 1.005.

Now if I enter MZ 1.0 I'll be .005 lower than I was before.

(M)ove (N)udge when not running a file and during a file you could try (S) for stop and raise, (I)nsert command, and then VA and change the Z axis value, then enter/ok and resume. Should work.
