Just wanted to throw this in here that I had a similar issue (even using gcode from estlcam). Turns out after replacing everything (and I mean everything) ramps stack-stepper motor-driver-pineapple-etc. My problem came from my short 3′ 4pin-2.54 dupont male to female jumper cable. I also had issues where it would either plunge too deep. After troubleshooting for an entire afternoon (not thinking it could be something as simple as my ‘jumper’ wire). I threw a multi-meter on each end and tested continuity while wiggling the cable around. Turns out the damn wire had a short in it somewhere. This was the cause of all of my issues. This has now given me reason to add a vac attachment lol. Some issues lead us to greater things!
