Mach4 General Discussion / Mach 4 Tool Auto Zero
« on: March 07, 2015, 05:35:15 AM »
I was trying to figure out a few things regarding tool auto-zero in Mach 4.

1. When the M6 code comes up when running a program it passes by the code as if it is a comment, NO it does not show up as (M6) in code. no brackets.
2. I see the button for tool auto-zero on the main "run Program" page, but alas, nothing comes of it when pressed.

I am new to Mach 4 so I am %99.99 SURE I missed something somewhere!

P.S. also what is the best recommended wiring for the touch-off plate, I plan on having one for tool change permenantly installed on the table.

Any and all help given is more than greatly appreciated.

Mach4 General Discussion / Mach 4 softlimits not working
« on: February 23, 2015, 04:03:32 AM »
So First I am new to the entire CNC Scene. So please forgive me if i miss anything along the way with information.
My problem is occurring when I have the machine softlimit button on, my machine passes right through the limits  ??? AND only moves in the + direction >:(. when I turn off the softlimits it returns to normal operation ???.
I am using Mach 4 Hobby version 2230 with the PMDX 422 smart BOB. both are up to date with latest firmware/software. I am wondering if I have something in the settings wrong i.e. missed on/off tick. This option is very much a possibility seeing I am new to the CNC scene. My machine is a custom built 6'x10', from scratch 8).
