I have managed to make my own rotary setup on the long mill since the Vortex is out of my price range. I have zeroed all axis for surfacing of my stock. I currently have a 3.5” round stock that I turned on my lathe but want to make sure it’s true with the surfacing tab. Everything works and runs properly but I can’t figure out why my Z axis is starting 1.92 above the stock even if I zero off on the probe or the paper method. Any help would be great .
Sounds like you have zero set to the center of stock in CAM, but you’re zeroing off the surface of your actual stock.
Yes I’m zeroing off the top of my stock but the only setting im using are the rotary surfacing in the g sender app
Use the center of your stock as zero.
