Hi guys , quick one in the code below is the Z safe set ? Its NCStudio so it might look a bit strange ..

N70G0X0.000Y0.000S15000M3
N80G0X108.535Y0.000Z16.699
N90G1X0.000Z-2.435F3000.0
N100G1X200.000F2400.0
N110Y2.381

The problem is its rising 10 mm and I only have 9 - 8 mm before the stop kicks in on the Z axis, I want to set it to say 4 mm to stop this happening.

Thanks AdCNC so if I set it to say 000Z05.00 would that work or would it be 000Z5.00 ?

Ignore what is in front of the Z thats part of the Y coordinates. And yeah, you don't need put a 0 before the 5 just put 5 or what ever you like. :-)

Btw you can ignore the N80,N90,N100 etc that is at the start of each line, thats just line numbering and its set on yours in increments of 10 this does not have any effect on the g code

Thanks Ad , just one other question if you have time, can I splice the finishing code under the roughing code as I'm attempting to use the same tool for both to try and speed things up ? I have done some test and the ball nose dose exactly the same job as the end mill bit on the wood i'm using.
