Mach4 General Discussion / Re: work zero in mach 4

Well I was playing around with profiles and selected router instead of my created profile . This is a totally different screen set than the profile that i created.
I chose initially the router profile set for profile but not the screen i got. Much bolder and less selections.

I think this is part of the problem. Should I delete my profile and start over and do my settings carry over if i do that?

I have nothing on my machine that says work coordinates, all i have is a button that says machine coordinates to which i can turn on/off and 2 sets of readings on dro's.

Machine coordinates zero at top as well as home position.
To jog down i have to push the positive button.
The dro gives a positive reading.

Is this what you are asking me????

If not i will keep trying to answer your question.

Thanks

Positive button moves in neg direction and vise versa

OK, Are work and machine coordinates the same or is this a sample of the two names for one function???

Yes, z up and down in machine coordinates. Down is home zero up is negative

OK, the machine plunges faster than retracts, it works away from material rather than into it


I will never run out of material this way, LOL.

ok, i think i go it. I have a problem the z axis i think. Going down from positive home zero to work , dro shows positive. If i understand right down in the work piece should be a negative movement, is this correct.

I have been dry running some gcode tap test files and  watched the dro;s and noticed this. x& y seem to be ok. I tried the pos and neg switching in the setup and 0 negative becomes positive.

OK Craig time to walk the dummy to the next step

Help
