    That's definitely a weird one!

    After warming up does every Z move have a corresponding Y move? When it lifts straight up at the end of the file to its safe Z location does the Y also move, or is...

    Does it lose position ...cut the part the wrong size and not return to the correct home position afterwards? Or is it that the tabs are shifted but the parts are correct other than that?
