General Mach Discussion / Homing Position
« on: October 07, 2015, 07:53:21 PM »
I installed my homing switches based off of a couple mini mill examples on the internet.

Is the the correct position for "home?"

I am having trouble with the concept.  When I ref all home, it goes to this position in my example picture.  the thing I get confused about is when i jog away from its home position on the x or y, its a negative number. 

because of this confusion its hard for me to figure out my soft limits.

i have watched the mach3 tutorial on home switches, twice so far....im still just a bit confused.

If anyone could help explain this to me or point me in the right direction id appreciate it!

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 Parallel Port Home Switch
« on: October 01, 2015, 05:42:00 PM »
I have mach3 setup with a gecko g540.  I have home switches on three of my axis.

I can hit the switch and watch the light blink on while on the diagnostic screen but it doesnt stop.  It just hits the mechanical limit once it blows past the switch. 

I've done some searching and spent about a week trying to switch things around but always get the same result so I broke down and made a post.

Can anyone lend a hand?  Your time is appreciated.
