FAQs / Shortcut Key to Display
« on: January 23, 2010, 10:34:22 AM »
On the cutting display I keep clicking on the left mouse key that rotates the display instead of the right one to move the image. Is there a key combination to recenter or un rotated the display?

And also can I opt to not have the plasma profiles be used in the G-code?
Thanks Ken

Yes I got it fixed and it self aligns, I was having a bad problem with it till I scraped the set I was working with and started fresh. I decided that I had set so many switches that I didn't know where the problem was.
When I started fresh and was making sure that every thing was working correctly as I progressed, I found that my homing switches for the gantry "Y" and "A" Were controlling the opposite axis so when "Y" axes stoped it it stopped the "A" axes instead and nothing was working right, It was overshooting the switches, not stopping were I wanted and creating all kinds of problems. I also figured out that once it was fixed that setting the home location from the stop position did not move the gantry it just moves the home position on the table. I was thinking that the gantry would move to the home position after hitting the stops. It doesn't. It does if you hit reference then hit home after it stops at the switches.

Still playing with it now I am down to getting the plasma to fire.

Hope this helps
P.S the slave with master in the general config page does need to be unmarked.

I have just finishing up my plasma / router table it is a 48" x 96" table with steppers on each side for the y axes each side has a homing switch connected to a board with A home and Y home can I get mach 3 to controll each motor so I can bring the gantry back into alignment each time I send it home. Right now i have Y and A slaved.

Any help would be appreciated.
