Not starting where I expected it to
This is my first attempt at a program and I watched several tutorials but I'm still lost. I have set the X,Y zeros and used the touch plate for Z zero on the top of my work piece. I load the program in the pendant, and when I hit start the spindle moves about 2 inches away (Left) off the working piece on the X axis and then starts the plunge. I just stop it at that point. What am I doing wrong?? Or what am I missing in my program? I have tried several different things and every time it does the same thing. When I preview the tool path before saving, it does what it should.
I checked for offsets in the program and I could be wrong but all I see is X= 0.0 Y = 0.0 on the area where you set up tool paths. Unless there is another area that I could not find.
Does the machine have it's own set of X, Y, zeros that need to be set?
