    I have just cut some slots for some clamps, the through cuts worked fine. I then ran a shallow cut for bolts outside the vector using the same vector and they where offline. I screwed the mdf down so it didnt move, any ideas why it didnt line up.

    Give us a bit more info.

    #1 What was the vector. Single straight line or a Slot.?
    #2 Was it the same tool size and number.
    #3 Did you move material or reset X/Y zero.
    #4 What software

    Pics would be good

    It was a 7mm slot with semi circles at both ends, it was the same tools. I set the xyz between runs and the software is v carve pro. The material was screwde to the waste board. I will have to check if the waste board moved maybe.

    Highly likely you moved either x or y zero then.? Other less likely things could be

    #1 Cam cockup
    #2 Tool offset applied
    #3 Material moved
    #4 Tool offset applied
    #5 Lost steps

    if I was routering inside and outside the same vector should I rehome and re touch probe inbetween each process.

    If you don't move the material or part then you don't need to reset anything other than the Z height if you changed the tool. If you use the same tool then you don't need to do anything, just run your new code (provided you set the same X Y position in CAM)

    If you move the material or part then you need to reset all axis.
