General Mach Discussion / Finished and tested the CRP4848 Machine (GREAT)
« on: January 01, 2015, 02:11:14 PM »
Had a few problems on the way nothing really major and a lot of MY confusion.  After building using their electronic package for the Nema 23 with 3/8 shaft using the proximity switch package they offer this is really great.  After the assembly with measurements mostly by their methods using parts for spacers etc, I just cut into the waste board 1/6 deep a 36" x 36" square and corner to corner less than a 1/64 error.  It appears to be exact but I am sure it's not that good but you cannot measure it.  the Z axis I checked with a dial indicator and the error was in full travel less then .0015  Not bad. 

I would recommend this kit to anyone it's really well built and the technical support is the best even through the holidays.  As you can tell I am quite pleased with this system.  My retired router max speed cut was about 50" per this one I cut at 200 and could probably push it a bit harder with enough router on the unit. 

What I am trying to do is move the tool after cutting to a position on the table say to the rear out of the way for easier loading and unloading the table.  The code generated in Vcarve moves the tool back to the original  home position.  I am not sure if I change that in Mach or in Vcarve and then HOW? The best would be if I can pick a position on the table say at 0,48 to the far right rear of the table then once reloaded move back to 0,0 and I am ready to go again.   

Thanks for all the help, Scott figured it out sent him my XML file he noticed four axis machine with incorrect information in ref all home.  He added the line RefCombination(10) 'Y&A.  All is working as it should now.

It's great to have this type support makes a real difference. Thanks again all

yes stock screen set and No it will not reset

typing or hitting the zero will do nothing it is as the
DRO is locked

There is something set wrong or a configuration error here.  When I ref all home the machine moves to home both x and y.  Now I move my xy to the work piece someplace in the table.  I now move up to zero x and y the dro's are locked out and I am not in machine mode.  the only way to get the dro to allow a reset to 0 is by hitting reset then I can change the DRO to 0. 

What can cause the DRO's in part mode not to allow a reset?  Talked to Cory at CNCrouterparts and he has never heard of this either.  I am in hoes someone can figure this out or lead me in the right direction.  Maybe a rfeinstall of Mach is required, I just do not know.

I have managed to get this far now, when I home hgme machine it sets the machine coords to 0,0 however the work coords show some other number not zero.  Now if I move to another location on the table and try to set my work coords to 0,0 it's locked out I am not able to change them at all.  Now if I hit reset and trty then I am able to change them to 0,0 for the part coord and the machine coord still showsThe pointy I moved to.  For some reason I am not able to hit the zero and have it respond.  As I mentioned it's as if the button weas locked out.  I have never had this problem before it's new to me. I do not know anyplace in Mach where you can lock the DRO so it cannot be changed.

Well part of it anyway.  Now I can reset only if I hit reset then zero the DRO's after homing.  This is strange

I think I just found the problem, Persistent DRO and Persistent  offsets were both checked under general configuration.  After unchecking them I am ab le to reset the DRO's to zero.  Then when I check machine coordinates it showes exactly where I am on the table.

Machine coordinates when homing gets reset to 0 but the poart does not.  When I move to the position I want to be zero I am not able to with the buttons it's like they are locked out.
