You have the ‘dry mode’ enable (notice the curser in the right side flashing?) this disables z moving when running the carve. Also, don’t see an email in support@onefinitycnc.com. That should always be the first place you should reach out to, especially since almost no one has an elite yet so the rest of the world can’t help you :stuck_out_tongue:

Set machine on dry run to keep the spindle off. First 3 times spindle was on.
FYI if you set tool to #00 it defaults to dry run
I was thinking since it was Saturday I would try here first.

Hey Joe,

(OT) naming a topic “Having a problem” is very disadvantageous. Usually people come to the forum to use the search function with meaningful keywords that describes their problem the best, to get the best search results at once. If you name it “Having a problem”, your topic will match no particular problem, but apply to all people that have any problem. Since the problem is not mentioned, even if you find a solution to your issue and post it, nobody will find it.

Please always give a meaningful topic title.

Hey Joe,

I don’t know the dry mode you refer to, but as per the G-Code standard,

“It is OK to program T0; no tool will be selected. This is useful if you want the spindle to be empty after a tool change.”

Joe,
If it moves fine when homing, and it moves fine when jogging, the z is good.

It looks like you have an issue with zeroing and xy zero of you work piece, that’s why it’s banging to the left. It’s not zeroed correctly.

At the 1:06 mark you can see the xy zero ‘work origin’ isn’t far enough right compared to what the screen preview is showing.

As per requested I removed video. I don’t have a tool changer. I was using a ball nose bit one day and VCarve set bit to #0 and it took me a while to figure out. Onefinity Elite has a dry run and it appears to just air carve your tool path

Masso added that handy feature in a more recent software upgrade - meant to allow you to quickly check the perimeters of your toolpath to ensure proper sizing/positioning/etc… of your stock. Tool #0 was dedicated to this function at this time.

This issue has been resolved through support. Turns out the user didn’t zero his program correctly.
