    Morning Everyone,

    Today I've set up my bed and I had previously had thinner wood on the bottom as a temp spoil board while I waited for my actual board I was using for my spoil board.

    As I've set it all up and clamped it to the bed, I thought it was going to well.
    Loaded up NCStudio - set my work piece origin then tried to do my "Z axis" with the mobile calibrator.

    It completes only to jump up to the highest point and flash a red warning in the NCStudio window.
    (I know how to fix this by disabling the limits and pressing 1)

    My understanding was that it will always jump back to 10 mm regardless of the thickness of wood I used after using the mobile calibrator?
    (Edit: But it only jumps back up to 8.2xxx and then gives me the error)

    So my question is this; How can i check where the Z axis is set to? and any other trouble shooting tips anyone has would be greatly received.
