OK i guess i forgot how to post to. Work 0 is fine . My gcode loads into top right of work envelope and don't know how to change it. Everything gets cramed in there. Re-gen tool path doesn't help.

OK here we are again. I am having some great success, now i have some more questions. Why does my gcode load and use only the top right corner of my work envelope. No matter how i change the drawing before generate the code it still loads top right. Offsets are set, code will run with everything cramed in that corner. Regenerated tool path and same thing?????

 I was going through the changes and remembered i was experimenting with the different buttons and so on. I had set soft limits and homing and didn't realize that i had to activate the switch for the gui to have it all to work.


Ref all home 15 times turned switch of and back  to not working right. Sounds simple to me it just took me a long time to get there. Sometimes trial and error is how we get there. Hope it works.

On to trying to learn more about this. I learn someyhing new every day.

Craig,
I greatly appreciate all your insperational help to those NOT AT YOUR LEVEL . We all have a bad day occasionally!!
No matter how bad my day is i always try to make someone elses better.

I will reaseach yuour suggestion about changing controllers and make my decision based on that! At the time you suggested that previously my machine would refference just fine, my thought is if it isn't broke don't fix it.

I will let you know what my result are!

Thanks again for all your insight

Why would this happen now after 3 days of working fine?????


Ireally don't know where to find the item you are reffering to.  Some of us are beginners and need to have things in step by step where to find and how to do instructions.

I went to home my machine today and y does not work right, I shut down last night turned it on today and the Y axix heads for home 0 as always, it bumps the switch backs off and reverses right back into the switch putting it in stop mode. Can't figure that out.

I checked all my settings and nothing has changed since turning off last night.


I feel like i am chasing a ghost. Some suggestions would be great.

Ken
