General Mach Discussion / DRO question
« on: October 01, 2018, 09:23:53 AM »
Finally almost finished with configuration but something is strange not sure why.  When I auto zero Z the DRO registers correctly 2" where I set it to be after zeroing but when I look at machine coordinates I see a crazy number like .485 I am not sure why it is not agreeing with my work coordinates.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  <a href="http://" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://</a>

Problem solved not sure I understand why but in any event, my machine used two motors for the Y axis move one of the DRO's 4 was not getting reset at ref all home.  Had to change the slave axis from Y-a to Yb and this solved the problem.  I want you to know I did not solve this problem it was the folks at CNCrouterparts that solvd it with me. gret support any equipment I need will certainly come from them.

once loaded I ref all home then if I move on the MDO screen cannot move without reset.  Once reset hit the buttons to ZERO still cannot move until I reset again then on the mdi screen I am able to put in cords and move  It looks to be something to do with the DRO's matching or not matching it's strange to me

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 startup problems
« on: September 28, 2018, 01:00:07 PM »
recently had a computer crash, not smart but did not have backup of my XML configuration so needless to say it's a start over.  I downloaded the new version version R3.043.062 managed to get everything running again with the help of CNCrouterparts.  I now have a few bugs I am not able to get rid of.

startging Mach3 all is normal REF all home all is normal, now I move to the MDI screen to move to a specific spot I am notable to employ any Gcode commands until I hit reset again.  Now once I move if I move back home ref all home again now as normal the machine dro and the work dro does not aggree if I tryt to reset the work dro it will not reset.  If I hit reset button then it will zero and we start all over I am finding to do most anything after I ref all home I  need that reset button a lot.  This just is noty normal from my old configurationn  If anyone can help on this it would be greatly appreciated  I have been working on this for a week now with NO progress

Got iy, thank you Hood, that really helps, now at the end rather than a return to part 0,0 I can add a line of code to send the machine to the rear and not worry about where I had my part 0,0 set.  That will make life much easier for loading and unloading.

If I understand you correctly then code sent like G53 x48 Y48 will move x and y to machine coordinates not part coordinated? If that is right I have my answer.

General Mach Discussion / G=code question
« on: January 14, 2015, 05:24:46 AM »
My machine is setup at 48,48 I ref all home so now the machine has the bit at 0,0.  I move to a tool location for cutting say 6,0 and zero my DRO.  at the end of my cut normally I see I return to the DRO or part cut 0,0.  If I issue a command like x48 y48 is this move based upon my machine cord or the part cord?   I read where the G28 I believe will move to the soft limits I am confused by that I just can't seem to get my head around what is happening.

I would try to reinstall or copy the dll file it might  be corrupt.

Thank you, I understand and I like the approach.  One G code different park position with one easy change.
