That was it, alright. Thank you for spotting that.
I must have been screwing around yesterday or the day before and saved the file while native units were in inches.
just saved again but with that set to metric, re-opened the program and it now runs that wizard in inches as it should.
Thanks again.
Alex

Sorry Hood.
Thought this went an hour ago.

Hang on.
That's not right.
Must have copied the wrong file.

Here you go and thanks.
However, as I said, it WAS working yesterday.

No question, that would makes sense, Phil except for the fact that yesterday (still calibrated in metric) that wizard (programed in inches) worked in inches.
The G20 code is supposed to make Mach 3 output inches, I guess. The DRO's read inches but the output is in millimeters.
There must be something in the software that overrides the G20 command but I can't find it.

Yesterday I ran one of my first Wizards.
A simple 'row bolt patten'.
No I had originally calibrated Mach 3 in Metric but this wizard ran in inches and it ran perfectly.
I tried it again to day and it still runs correctly buy it travels in MM and the DRO's read in MM also.
The wizard includes a G20 code so it should switch to inches but it does not.
What am I missing?

Thanks Hood.
Don't know what I WAS doing but it obviously wasn't  that because I did EXACTLY that and everything WAS saved.  ::)
Thanks for your help.

General Mach Discussion / Save Settings
« on: March 12, 2010, 12:35:05 PM »
Obviously, I'm missing something ???
I can't seem to figure out how to save all my settings (motor pin allocations, limit switch conditions, motor tuning etc).
I choose "save settings" but when I try to "restore settings" and the program shuts down and I re-start it by opening "MyMill" file, I must re-set all parameters.
There's a trick here but I can't seem to find it. :-\
A little help please.

Great idea Danial. I'll try that right away.
Also great info from you, Hood, but the best is an excuse to buy a scope. I had a (really) old Heathkit before moving to Texas. Bought a newer one but my son needed it "for a while" while doing a project at school (electronics engineering). That was two years ago. I've stopped asking!!
Thanks to both.

Daniel.
Certainly, I am confident that the port is correct but not too sure about the pins themselves.
Since I do not have a schematic of the driver board, I'm not sure how to tell.
Do you know if I can use a multimeter to do any testing?
