General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3 wont fire torch on plasma table
« on: March 23, 2018, 02:47:46 AM »
i dont know your System/Hardware, and found no documentation about plasmaroute control box,
but normaly there is an Output (i.E. spindlerelay) witch Switches the cutter on/off (via M3 macro)

so if you post some Information of your box, and some screenshots of ports&pins -> spindle Setup.
also your XML would be helpful.

you can also try to replace this line:


Code "G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch

with:

Code "G91 G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch
Code "G90"

but i am not sure the retract goes into material, or the G31

best way would be to runn the code in VB scripter window,
and step through the code by using the >||, to see where
the fault happens.

btw have you watched the index Input in diagnostic Screen, when
the fault occurs ?

ok there is one important difference in you probing routines:

1. the edge finde Routine

Call SetDRO (2,0.000)
Code "G4 P0.025" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G90 G0 Z.500" 'retract Z to .500 inch

here you set your Z-axis to 0 and the go up to 0.5 (absolute)

2. the z probe

Call SetDRO (2, PlateThickness) 'set the Z axis DRO to whatever is set as plate thickness
Code "G4 P0.25" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch

here you set Z-axis to plate thickness (what ever in DRO 1002 is) and the go up to 1 (absolute)

so if DRO1002 >= 1in you will go into material

cheap or expensive does not matter for the Moment.
without a propper XML None of them has a Chance to work.

ok had a look to your XML.
it seems to be bad, it contains only Step per, ACC and Vel infomation for axis 0 (x).
i know that Information is shown for the other axis in Motor Tuning, dont ask me why.

so i would start with a new fresh Profile, Setup axis should not take very Long.

You were correct. I had the power supply on the wrong side. I feel so dumb.

Hooked it up correctly and the weird thing is nothing changed.

X still works. The other three axis do not work.

So, did I burn out two boards with them being hooked up backwards? And why would this stupid thing work with the X-axis no matter how it's hooked up? I know this is stepping outside of the Mach3 software questions at this point and do appreciate the help I've received.

so have you tried to swap X an Y Step/Dir Connection on your breakout board ?

have you configured enable pin14 now ?

can you please post your XML ?

your axis dro's are changing on Screen if you move the other axis ?
