General Mach Discussion / go to zero but only on x and y
« on: June 28, 2015, 10:07:06 PM »
Is there a way to click the go to zero button and have mach3 tell the maching to go to zero on only the x and y and NOT on the z.  I want the z to stay where its at and only go to work offset with x and y.  Thanks

General Mach Discussion / auto tool zero with limit switch
« on: June 28, 2015, 07:50:53 AM »
my machine came with 5 switches and i am only using 3.  I have seen many people setup a touch plate with wire and ground.  i was wondering if it was possible to just use one of the limit switches for this purpose.  Rig up the switch with a plate on top and set it under the tool and run the auto tool zero script.  Wont that work?

Sometimes when i hit stop during a program run then hit start again Mach3 jumps to a differant part of program and ruins the part.  Its random.  Anyone have this same problem?

Hi,  just wanted to know what the correct startup and shutdown sequence is.  I am using uc-100 controller.  Do i turn machine on then mach3 for startup and then for shutdown turn off mach3 and then machine?


General Mach Discussion / Soft limit activated on startup
« on: May 11, 2015, 12:14:31 AM »
I got all my soft limits setup good but im worried that i will forget to turn them on and the machine will overtravel.  Is there a way to have mach3 startup with the soft limit toggle on?


General Mach Discussion / A axis slaved to y question
« on: May 10, 2015, 12:20:29 AM »
I have 2 motors for y axis and so i have the a axis slaved to the y.  I noticed in the config-motor tuning that the y axis motor movement profile is differant from the a.  Should they be the same?  I have a cnc mogul machine.
