Mach4 General Discussion / Plasma M3 Macro
« on: October 07, 2019, 07:25:24 PM »
Using the new M3 macro function for the plasma torch height control. Only running it on the digital portion right now using a simple limit switch on a floating head Z-Axis.

The issue were having is the M3 function seems to get stuck every once in a while. It will go down slowly to touch off the plate, hit the probe limit switch, and then just stop. The machine wont error out or provide any feedback.

This causes us to have to restart the cycle and it will work again. Happens probably every 5-6 times it runs the cycle.

>Any thoughts on what is causing this?

>Any way to open up the macro itself so I can read what it is doing? I cant seem to find it.

Thanks!
