I run TinyG V8 with Chilipper and all of a sudden the footprint (think thats what you would call it) of the project is 10 times size of the gcoded project. Ive been scratching my head and I am a newby. If anyone could give me the simple answer that would be grate… Kym

What are you making your gcode with. Also do you think maybe it’s in inches instead of mm

Or perhaps the axis calibration has been lost. Steps per mm.

I am still unsure what to do. I have posted below the coding I have. I use Vetric Aspire 8 and drag project into Chilipper.
If you could let me know whats wrong with my coding that may solve the problem… Thanks again.

What is your machine, belt or ball screw based or other? Check the microstepping setting $1mi/$2mi/$3mi on your driver (jumper setting) and make sure it reflects TinyG setting for each axis. Make sure that step/rev is correctly set to your machine. Measure linear movement once rotating by 1 revolution or more revolutions and divide total linear distance by number of revolutions to get more accurate results. Once you get close, you will tune it easily to a correct final value.
What post-processor are you using in Vecrtic Aspire? There is a post-processor available for TinyG with inches and mm variants. Easy to find once you Google it.

I know over where you can JOG the machine you can also change the JOG settings: 1 / .1 / .01 / .001

I don’t know if this could cause it. I had accidently made mine 1 and plunged the mill into my spoiler.

Interesting enough though, I have a solid reference for Machine zero now.

It would be possible to add some intelligence into cp to check whether jogs are going to result in large z axis moves and flag them with a confirmation box.
I also saw issues with homing when a part of the homing cycle might be dragging a bit across a workpiece. I thought that should be changed to home x and y and then home z.

If anyone is interested I can see how easy it would be to do this.
