G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / Re: Zero point of Y Axis resets
« on: February 04, 2008, 04:14:21 PM »
Hi, Adrian

Post your G-code file and error line number, Mach just runs the code from your post created with Eagle and PCB_G-Code.

Some G-code doesn't post N00 (line #'s) Use below method.

Double click on the G-code window in Mach, It will show line numbers on the left, Use the up-dn slider to the right, Scroll dn to the line that shows the

reset/where it is going wrong point, The view screen will show the moves, Note the line number just above the white line in the G-code window, That's the

error line of code.

You may be able to just change the Y value on that line to correct the error, But it may cause further errors in the remaining G-code.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Bill

Now that worked really really Nice, Have worked with LC for quite awhile, Don't think I tried that for a cleanup routine.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Satbeam

As Hood stated Nothing Setup, It would be good to view the video's.

Hears a Pic of the, Config, Ports & Pins, Motor Output's setup screen, Pins need to be setup for your control.

Be careful,, Watch the videos.

Thanks, Chip

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Hood

The 12 volt's is on the BoB input side, Printer port side opto isolated.

Hook your Skype back up and give me a call sometime.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Chris

Look like the on / off is good, Must be a Noise issue,  The Capacitor may get it working.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Satbeam

Post your Mach3Mill.XML file, Make a copy of it and rename the copy to a different name, "Satbeam Mach3Mill"

It's located In c:\Mach3\ folder.

That's a good starting point.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Chris

Capacitor's, Many flavor's, The one you have may work fine, But the type "Cjmerlin" was referring to, I think, Looks like a Dime or smaller with leads coming

out of the side/edge, Ceramic, Non polarity sensitive type.

Thanks, Chip

PS:  Were waiting for, "It work's !!!!"
