That's what I was referring to, I will look into Mach4. Thanks DavidAre you referring to the controller software for running the machine? CAM doesn't run the machine, it's how you generate your G-code. If so, I use Mach4 for that, plenty of other choices, as well.
Yes, my controller is grbl-based. I must have a bad copy of UGS, it does not have the ability to set Z without setting X & Y at the same time. It also keeps freezing and giving errors. Thanks for the reply.If you are using UGS, I assume that your controller is grbl-based. Correct? If so, I don't believe that Mach3 or mach4 will work with that controller. You don't give any specifics about your issue with UGS. You mention setting Z0. UGS will certainly do that quite simply. If you don't like UGS, you could try CNCjs or gSender. Both are written for grbl-based controllers.
Thanks for the reply. I feel very dumb, have been using this pgm for years and always used the reset zero button. I can't believe how dumb I've been. Thanks again!I don't know what version of gsender you are using, but if you are using UGS Platform as opposed to UGS Classic, all versions have the facility to zero any axis. In the attached screen cap, you can see that there is a button for X0, Y0 and Z0. Clicking any of them zeroes that axis and only that axis.
