You can get the G-code from the surfacing tool by clicking on “G-code Viewer” at the top right of the surfacing window. You can then copy to clipboard and paste it into a plain text file. Then you can drag and drop the text file into a post to share it. That way someone can look at the code and see if that’s the problem.
$102 is the setting for Z axis steps per mm, it’s how far the motor has to rotate to move the axis 1 millimeter.
The setting can be accessed with the firmware tool. The default for your LongMill is 200 steps/mm. You can also see the settings by typing $$ in the console and the console will display all the firmware settings. You can change a setting in the firmware tool or with the console. For example entering $102=200 in the console would set 102 to 200.
If your interested in learning more about settings, G-codes or error codes I have some resources that I use.

thanks for your help…
