General Mach Discussion / Move to a specific location

Is there a way I can enter in an x, y coordinate and move to there without having to do it in G-Code?

Jogging will get me close but not exact.

Thanks

You say it will scroll through the code. Will it go back to the line I selected?

What is involved in the "prep" move? What if it's already in the position I want to start from?

For example I get an erroneous limit switch triggered in the middle of a cut. So now it's stopped in between point X and Y.

Would I select point X as a restart point. Would the prep move be to go back to that point and wait for me to press "cycle start" again?


So the e-stop and the limit switch are handled differently? I thought that they were the same. Live and learn!

In my instance where I get an erroneous limit switch triggered every once in a long while, would what I said in my last post (above) hold true in that instance?

Scroll to the line you want to start at then press RFH, it will scroll through the code and once done you press Start, a box will pop up with the prep move and option to start the spindle, if it looks like its OK then press OK and it will move to the position stated in prep move. Once there its just a case of pressing cycle start again. One thing worth mentioning is it works best if you have the safe Z enabled.

I'll give that a try, Thanks!

I thought that the RFH would be the thing to do, but it didn't work.

How does the RFH work?

I tried clicking on it but I had no movement, but it did scroll through the lines of code

??

Hello,

Every once in a long while I get a limit switch error while cutting. Or I press the e-stop button.

What would the procedure be to continue from the point where it stopped?


1. click Reset?
2.

Then what?

Thanks

Can you attach your xml and some code that it happens with, will try to see if I can get it to do the same and maybe manage to work out why.

Here's the XML code. Looks like a jumbles up mess to me  ???

Thanks

If it is just one axis, try changinging the cables with one of the other axis, do an "air cut" a few times, and see if the X still does it. If it doesn't, it could be a wiring flaw.

I had this happen when building a system and it turned out it was 2 of the direction wires slightly touching each other.

Each wire has individually shrink tubing with no way to touch. I triple checked every wire before I plugged the motors in.

Does it always light up the SCALE led and change the scale setting when it happens?

(;-) TP

Always.

I'm new to this so I'm not sure where to find the XML code.

Also it will do this with no g-code loaded in. I am just jogging around checking things out and it will happen.
