Manually set Zero
Posted: Thu Feb 13, 2020 10:22 pm
Trying to enter ina zero point manually. Im new to this. I have a shapeoko XXL (using carbide motion) and am running 80 of the same inlays on the same size wood. I set up a corner jig on my table so the pieces will always be in the same place. When I turned the tool on and initialize it (in the far back right corner) and cleared all offsets the position said -5,-5,-5. I then brought the bit over to the starting point of my project and before I clicked on "zero all" I made a note of the x,y coordinates. I then zeroed all and ran a few of my projects. This was about a week ago. Mid week I ran a different project in a different spot on my table so I needed to get rid of the zero point for my first 80 piece project. Now I know I can go back and spend 5 minutes creating another zero point back at my jig, but was wondering if there was a way I could just manually enter the numbers. This way I dont have to "set 0" every time I go back to use that jig. I did go into my "set Zero" dialog dialog box. It let me highlight the fields and change the numbers, but they didnt take. When I hit "done" it brought me back to the "jog" dialog box I clicked on "jog to current zero" the router doent move. When I click agin on the "set zero" dialog box the numbers I had entered had just changed to -5. So router didnt move.
