Morning Hood
I have set the Z as suggested in your previous post.
I have checked the Home Neg Box for Y as when I pressed ref all home it was homing on the positive side of the table.
Referencing has not completed.
1. The Z moves 1st correct direction (up), hits limit and backs off.
2. Y moves 2nd correct dir ( toward minus) hits limit, does not back off. When I reset it automatically triggers a stop saying limit triggered. Cannot not get it to   move off limit unless I disable (un-check input) Y. Then move off Y limit recheck the input. The same happens all over again if I do a ref all home again.
3. I tried a 3rd time and got Z and Y to reference, but the X moved interdependently of it's slaved motor.
4. After the 1st ref all home I did notice that the A axis was showing A green outline around it's DRO button.
How do I get the 2 motors of the x axis to work together - remember I did not have to change either of their dir active low setting to get them to travel in same direction.
Am I correct in assuming that one needs to reference the axes in order to set the table parameters in accordance with the home/soft limits.
and does one need to zero the axis first......jog them to zeo position then zero them?

OK I'm back to where I was yesterday, but Legally!
I noticed I wasn't 100% correct in the previous posts.
I have changed the dir active low setting for the Z axis. When pressing PgDn the axis goes down, using the the pop-out MPG to jog, the Z- take the axis down.
This effectively changes the direction travelled opposite to the X&Y axes. I would prefer to keep it this way as I think I will use the keyboard more than the pop-out to jog.
Question: 1. How will this affect normal operation when running G-code for a drawing? (Will it make the axis travel in the wrong direction when cutting)
              2. Does this affect the soft max and soft min settings? (manual and videos say to be careful and make the soft max a negative figure and the soft min a
                  positive figure....... one wants the axis to move up away from the table when homing or going to zero)

A bit of friendly advice for all those following the Mach 3 Support Forum.
Ensure that have your own personal licensed copy of the software.
The hard work and hours spent developing this software deserves the bucks spent.
The amount of help and free support one gets is amazing.
I got "burnt" and its not a nice feeling!

I do not run pirate copies of software by principle, therefore if this is so. I will rectify immediately and purchase my own licence.
Can I supply you details of the supplier????
