I’m a glutton for punishment.

Even though I say I’ve had enough trying to figure how to make this thing do something I want it to do, I come back to try again.

I may have figured out how to do a simple bit of text (maybe) but I can’t get it to zero out at the top opf the workpiece.

I start the program and the Z axis raises and it cuts air.

Here’s some of my code and I appreciate your patience.

I do not have dual end stops
