I have a non planer surface and that I using the Z offset in the Cuts panel and its working great except for one issue. I am using the Start/Stop/Pause feature to send the data. I will use Start to start the rastering of a design. I will then press pause and measure the actual height at the current location to make sure its correct. I will then hit Stop to stop the current layer so I can then re-adjust or move on to the next layer.
What I have observed is when I hit Start, the head moves to the location and then the bed raises to be closer to the laser and starts cutting, perfect since my head is above the piece. However, after pressing Pause and then in I press stop, it just goes back home without raising back up to the original height. Since the head is lower than part of the piece, it crashes into the part. This has bumped my piece multiple times today causing me to re-level it.
I would think that when I hit stop, the bed should move back to the original height and then move to home.
As a work around, before I hit stop now, I have to lower the bed manually.
