i think you have to add a second PP, because you are out of Outputs on PP1.
and you have used Input1 + 2 where the 5th axis is linked through internaly
for what ever reason.

M3 v .022

so you M6 macros look "normal".

if i understand everything right (my english is not the best), this random
Position shift either X or Y is allways Happening after a tool Change (M6).

so you can try this by entering a couple of M6 into MDI, to improve the
toolchange does this shift.

if you Google for: plasma floating head
you will get a lot of Information, how a Floating head works.

can you please post your M6Start and M6End macro,
because there should be nothing in for spindle control.
spindle is controlled by M3/M4/M5.

My issue is that I don't know what pins the hotend motor is being controlled with on the DB25 cable. How do I configure this so that Mach3 can see it? Thanks

what do you mean with "what pins the hotend motor is being controlled with on the DB25 cable".

the Motor itselv (witch is not included in yout hotend link) need's to be connected as a axis to MX4660hm.

the difference between the two is 711/28= 25.4

Just happens to be the conversion factor between mm and inches. What are your native units?


that was brilliant. 100% onto the point

maybe, who knows.
