General Mach Discussion / MachTurn Issue
« on: May 29, 2023, 06:35:37 AM »
Can anyone help me with a small problem with MachTurn ?
Whenever I try to enter a zero in the Z axis dro, it won't do it, it just moves on to the "code" screen and it becomes highlighted ! In other words I manually move the tool to the end of my stock, sometimes the "Zero" button is there, sometimes it's not, I then click inside the dro box to highlight it, enter 0, and it just moves down to the g code window.
I don't use mach turn a whole lot so can't figure out when exactly this started. I don't want to do a re-install as I have a load of stuff set up for my mill that I don't want to lose.

I wonder if you considered soft limits. They have saved my butt so many times! Every time I ignored the warning I watched my job go to hell!!!


I have never used them mate, never found a need  (as long as my limit switches were operational)  :-\

Panic over guys, I think I've got it sorted !!
Somehow the Z++ had manged to change itself from active low to active high, I have no idea how this happened or how long it has been like that but all my switches are now working again.

Settings -> Override Limits  enabled maybe?
Yes mate, auto override limits is enabled and always has been. Changing it back still doesn't make any difference though.

Go to the diagnostics screen in mach3 and then press each limit switch in turn and see if you see the correct limit led change state on the screen.

Is there no z-- limit switch fitted?


I tried that Graham, all the limits change state when the switches are activated and no, there is no Z-- switch.

you do not have to insert it, just Chose the file and hit Post

Ok, let's try this then.

if you post a reply, below the Input window is a + sign for Attachments and other Options.

A picture of your ports and pins screen would be a good starting point


Tried to add a picture but I can't figure out how to attach it ?
