Hi Tezza,

If you home the machine and then drop straight down on the Z-Axis it will hit. You need to come off about 10mm for it to clear.

However when you start a job just always go to Work Zero first before starting a job, then it won’t drop down in the home position.

So it will only be an issue if you plan to cut something right on the maximum of your working area.
