Z axis not raising above material in between cuts

When I run my program the bit doesn’t come above the material when moving to the next letter or object needed to cut. Sometimes my the head isn’t responsive as other times. I tried tightening the set screws and checking the belts, but that didn’t help. Not sure if I need to bump up the z axis on my pot? Has anyone had similar problems?

It’s set on the default (.15) I’ve tried to set it an absurd amount like .75 and it didn’t help at all

Did you ever find a solution as to what was happening? I’m having this same issue right now

Same thing just happened to me!

was yours on the detail pass? If so it looks like you z heights may not have been exact same height
