Z-Axis does not "zero" out


I am using Chilipeppr, an Xcarve and mm settings.

When I “zero out”, the Z-Axis never shows as 0.000, sometimes 0.002 sometimes as 0.001 - the X and Y are ok.

Also, I have found that after a job, when the spindle moves back to home, the X-axis is off, again sometimes by 0.001, sometimes by 0.002.

Any ideas?



Mine does the same thing…I am cutting in wood…those tolerances are well within acceptable ranges.

When you do Z zero, you can Notice your Z moves a little as well as X and Y. It is part of homing prosedure. It’s normal. As long as machine memorizing those numbers, you’re good to go.
