Do you have a probe or MPG hooked up on your Ajax? I need help with mine.

If the Ajax was plug and play it would be very good. It turned out to be very difficult to get running. Others products are documented very well, and there is lots of support.

It is a proprietary system with very little suport. A piece together system with Mach suport would be less frustrating.

So that is why this subrutine worked. The X and Y were at zero. If they were not at zero it wouldn't run. Just talking about this helps it sink in. Thank you again.

Thank you for your help. Using the variable, works well. In the other method, how does the Y shift due to being in incremental mode? I am trying to understand this better. It does run in absolute, but z does not increment.
Thank you

Hi,

I'm having the similar problem.
When homing it goes to switch but don't reverses. How can I configure so that it comes off the switch?

Thanks



Swap the X+ and X- switch wiring. It may be activating the wrong switch, and then it can't reverse.

Does the machine coords for X axis get updated? If not sounds like the plugin is not informing Mach.
Hood

The code to home all three axis is: M92 P11 Q12 R3. It does go to x, and machine coords for x does update to zero. It is suppose to then home y and then z, but it stops at x.
Thanks
