Default Panther Setup Question

Just got our new panther in last week and continue to have issues. After getting done running the file to surface the table and finishing the spoil board something went wrong with the ATC. The tool carousel does not seem to be calibrated to the spindle. It wont pick up or drop off the tools in the correct spot. It is so bad that it will just bang into other tool holders if I let it. I'm sure I messed with something I shouldn't have. Any suggestions?

press the initialize button to rehome all axes, including the rotary carousel.

Make sure that the tool in the spindle receiver is the same as noted on the bottom right of the screen. They must MATCH!!!!

I feel your pain. I did pretty much the same thing when ours arrived. Follow Gary's directions and you should be good. Have you had or scheduled your orientation with tech support yet?
