I’m a little confused on how this works. I have a machine with a z axis controlled by the Ruida controller. I have it set to home the z axis. When the machine is reset it homes the z axis by bringingg it all the way up until it hits the limit switch and then sets that as Z zero. So far so good.
Now I go to device settings and enable z axis control. According to the documentation I need to be careful to set a material thickness becuase if the thickness is set to zero it might bring the table up and crash into the head. Makes sense. So to test it out I created a layer, set the z axis to 10, and clicked start (z axis currently all the way up at 10).
As I expected it dropped the table to 10mm and ran the program. If I hit start again to run the program again it drops the table ANOTHER 10 mm down to 20mm and runs it. Do it again, 30mm, etc. I would expect it to take the table to whatever the material thickness is set to, not incrementally drop the table by the material thickness every time I start the job.
Am I misunderstanding how this works?
