    VD command in config file

    I was looking at the VD command in the config file:
    ShopBot_PRS96x48alpha.sbd dated 4/23/16

    Resolution Multiple

    At my makerspace, somehow the config file got messed up and we had to reset our PRS Alpha shopbot. When I zeroed the z-axis with the z-zero plate, it was about 1/4 inch off (plate thickness setting...

    MTC.sbp - CHECK_MTL subroutine

    I was looking at MTC.sbp and can't figure out why CHECK_MTL subroutine is there. It doesn't seem to do anything. No matter what, it's going to set &z_adjust to zero.

    First line is commented out. ...

    That's plan B. I was hoping someone already had and XYZ zero script that I could just use. I doubt it's too hard to figure out how to combine the Z-zero script into yours. But since I'm new to...

    [QUOTE=jerry_stanek;193377]This is a 3 axis routine[/QUOTE

    Hi Jerry. This seems to be the exact same file that srwtlc created. It's just X-Y. I don't see anything for z zeroing.

    I assumed srwtlc's script did all three axis. If you're gonna do X-Y, might as well do Z at the same time. Since the plate is designed to be used with a banana jack, I figure I'd add a banana...

    I changed the cut depth to 0.1" and slowed the feedrate to 1.0 in/sec. I know I can easily go deeper and faster, but for testing I though I'd baby the setup a bit.
