General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3 looks weird and torch won't fire
« on: June 20, 2018, 07:11:38 AM »
you can try to test the Torch On by entering a M3 command to the MDI line.
if it does not fire check your M3 macro in c:\Mach\macros\ your Profile Name.
it should have a DoSpinCW() command inside.
also check the M5 macro for containing a DoSpinStop()

I will try it first thing tomorrow (Irish time!)

nearly the same as Bavarian Time ;)

Config -> General Config

Motion Mode
Constant Velocity ?
Exact Stop ?

you have to have a real Hardware Input on the Controller, Simulation via keyboard will and can not work,
because the probing is running on the Controller.

ok you are doing a Referenz on index pulse.

means the ref Limit Switch is very secondary.

reference on index pulse means go t reference Switch reverse direction and look for the next Zero pulse of Encoder.

it has done this before and it's an easy fix, just flip the belt round one step on the pulley and re-ref = all ok.

this teels me that you have a seperate Encoder for Feedback Loop, witch is belt driven.

ok if you shift this belt for one step, it is "normal" that yor home pos shifts as well (index pulse !!)


yes you have to set yout Motor outputs as well

port 1
Pin 2: X Axis Step (active low)
 Pin 3: X Axis Dir (active low)
 Pin 4: Y Axis Step (active low)
 Pin 5: Y Axis Dir (active low)
 Pin 6: Z Axis Step (active low)
 Pin 7: Z Axis Dir (active low)
