Or you could use a charge pump to connect Fwd to CM.

Check your acceleration is not set too high the motor may be stalling.

Just realized how old the original post is.

Code "G0 Y250"

Maybe the simplest way to do this is to add a line of code after the last line in the homing button script.  "Code G0 Y250" I may not have the syntax correct but there are numerous threads  explaining button script. 

The machine would home as normal and then move to X0, Y250


SmoothStepper USB / Re: Feed override causes jerky

I can't find how to edit my first post here so will just add this.

I have been talking to Jeffrey Birt on the ESS forum not Britt. 

They say the mind is the first to go!

Sorry for any inconvenience


SmoothStepper USB / Feed override causes jerky
« on: April 04, 2013, 10:37:32 AM »
I found this thread from some time back that is exactly what I am seeing but there was no resolution to the issue.

G code written for 30 FPM feed runs smooth no problems until I click feed override to speed up the cut.  The more override the jerkier it gets. 
Rewrite same file with 100 FPM feed and it runs smooth no problems until I click on feed override to speed up from 100.  Reducing the feed rate does not cause any problems.

I have been working with Britt on this at Warp9 and tried all of his suggestions and settings.  Several different versions of Mach and ESS. We are not sure it is a ESS problem.

Any suggestions appreciated.

CNC4PC said they shipped me two out yesterday but I haven't gotten them yet.
I know they were expecting them in when I ordered them maybe they have them now.


SmoothStepper USB / Re: ESS recommended Mach version?
« on: December 11, 2012, 06:45:00 AM »
I am using Version R3.043.066 in Mach3 with the  ESS_v10hd2 plugin.
This combination did solve some issues I previously had.


Mine is working fine also.

ESS, two motors and two switches on X axis.
Running the latest version of Mach3 and ESS.
