I found the problem. I had a G41 in the line before the M98 on my original program and that is what was messing it up. All is working now.

I just tried this on the computer in the office and it works fine. No motors hooked up but it goes through the program and I am using the same profile and screen set in the office as out in the shop.

This is my test program.
N001 G70
N002 G90
N003 G00 X-0.037 Y0.0
N004 M98 (Pierce.tap)   I added the P1 behind the M98 to try it but then it skipped the subroutine
N005 M03
N006 G01 Y1.0
N007 M05 G00 Z .25
N008 G40
N009 M30

This is my subroutine.
G31  Z-1 F30     When it checks the program it stops on this line.
G91  Z.3   

Thanks, Greg

I have manually added these lines to my program and they work great. I have a floating head with a micro switch. This is on a plasma table that I just added an auto  THC to.
G31 Z-1     
G91  Z.3   
But when I have tried to do a subroutine (M98) with this it gives me an error on the G31 Z-1 line
G31  Z-1
G91  Z.3     
Any idea of what I did wrong?
Thanks, Greg

I have been running Mach 3 for a while now and just had to switch computers and now I have a problem. I have a M30 comand at the end of a program and when I load it in Mach3 you do not see it and it does not rewind the program. Any ideas? Thanks

Any chance you could add a spindle button and a coolant button to the material tab? Thanks Loui

General Mach Discussion / Limit Switches working backwards
« on: April 13, 2007, 10:54:29 AM »
Limit switches are wired for NC all wired together. My problem is that I must push on the limit switch to get anything to work. I have changed the active high and low in the homing/limits and estop with no change. I have also tried the debouncing, no change.
My DRO's will show movement if I push any button but the table does not move.
I am willing to try anything.
