Thanks James.
GTG Marine is short for GoToGuys Marine Electronics and Services.
We work on everything from 17' flats boats to 65' sportfishing boats. Most of our work however is on 25'-45' center consoles.

Thanks again for all the good replies. This forum was one more factor in my decision to buy a CAMaster CNC machine.

It may be a problem with one of the macros with your FTC. Sounds like its resetting the Z0 to the spoilboard when you do the tool measure. I think support should be able to fix this for you very easily.

I doubt you are losing steps or losing position. My bet is something is wrong with the macro or the post processor.

Support looked over the macro and some other files this morning and found no issues. I'll run a few more jobs this weekend using the FTC. I'm hoping that by measuring bit height after the tool is meaured I'll be able to spot a problem if it happens again and prevent another mishap.
I think I'll VCarve myself a checklist and hang it next to the machine. Sometimes you get so eager to make the chips fly that you can easily do stupid stuff.

This happened again after a few weeks of everything working fine.
