Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Mach4 stops responding

Thanks Craig.

I tried a different G Code file and used the Fanuc post processor . It ran perfect no hangups
You were right the G code must have hung up .
But i noticed something else the m6 tool change script has a message box to tell you to change the tool and that message box sometimes appears under the main window so you can't see it and it makes it appear that mach is not responding
Cant click the ok button if you cant see it . If i minimize the main window it becomes visible , click ok and all is fine again.
Is there a way to make sure it is always on top

Created by Aspire with the Mach 2/3 ATC  post processor
I will try the Fanuc post processor since i hear it is compatible with Mach 4 ( Is it true?)
and will try Fusion360 as well

The G code looks ok to me  is it?

Thanks

Unfortunately it's not that simple
It's a fully licensed version

HI

Finally got most issues solved by installing latest mach4 version and latest ess build
All seems to work fine but when i run my g code and gets to the end or press stop Mach4 freezes , all buttons are grayed out.
Can't jog , i can turn the spindle on and off but nothing else,
Tried disable and enable again but nothing. Tried reset button nothing. Can't restart the program eater.
The only thing i can do is quit mach and start it again
Can anybody point me in the right direction to sort this out

Thanks  Laz

Ps getting Ess solved all my homing issues thanks guys.

The problem I countered is 
If I take out the check mark on axis mapping from axis A  (motor3) so it is disabled the that motor won't even jog in any direction with motor0
If i take it out of homing order ( change it to 0 from current 2) doesn't change anything ether

motor 3 on A axis just won't home

Hi.
Have a honing switch for separately for A and X axis on two different inputs so it should square the gantry on honing but axis A just won't move
Both active low so if there is a problem with the wires it should activate and would see it
Thank you guys for quick reply.
I will double check the switches

Hi.
I'm fairly new to this an would like to ask anyone who could help me .

I'm currently building my second CNC Router and this one has dual lead screw and stepper motor on my X axis
Set up motor0 as master and motor3 as slave to motor one
Also have homing switches on all axis

Everything is working fine when i jog the axis both motor0 and motor3 are turning and the gantry is working fine
The problem is when i try to home the machine . Motor0 on the axis will move but motor3 won't and the gantry will move out of square and to prevent damage have to stop the machine

How can I get both motors to move together

Thanks
