General Mach Discussion / Homing Slave Estops system
« on: April 13, 2009, 08:11:47 PM »
I have searched the forum I have not really found the problem that I am currently having.
I have the system set up to home the slave (A) with them master (Y).  Two motors to move a carriage.  I have a switch on either end of the Y side of the carriage in serial to one input. Y++,Y-- and Y Home.  I also have the same setup on the A side of the carriage.  All of these switches are in series to a different input. A++, A-- and A Home.

When I "ref all" the carriage moves towards home, hits the home switches for both Y and A.  It then moves off of the switches but when it comes off of the Y home switch first, it estops with the A home switch still active.  I assume that it is estopping because it comes off of the Y home and thinks its done but then it see that a switch is made and estops.

When it homes it doesn't appear to straighten the carriage by also homing off of the A side of the carriage.  Am I missing a setting or pinout somewhere?


General Mach Discussion / Unable to scroll through code
« on: March 13, 2009, 12:07:52 PM »
Just had a motherboard failure after running Mach 3 for over a year.  Upon setting up another computer and reinstalling the latest version of Mach3, I am unable to highlight loaded gcode and scroll through the code with the arrow keys as before.  I highlight the code window but I am unable to scroll!?  I have this problem on two different computers now.  What am I missing?


LazyCam (Beta) / LCam failed to initalize
« on: May 06, 2007, 12:04:38 PM »
Anyone else having problems after installing the new LCam with the program failing to initalize when started?
I have loaded it successfully on another computer but not the one that I use at the tool.  I have tried unsinstalling LCam and reinstalling several times.  When I click on the LazyCam icon it gives me the error: LaysCam.exe - Application Error  The application failed to initialize properly (0xc150002).  Click OK to terminate the application.
