home offsets
« on: January 27, 2009, 03:21:53 PM »
is there a way to have the table of the mill automatically go to a set position after homing.
I would swear the home offsets in the homing and limits did that in some older versions.
thanks,
Chuck

Home Off is to set the machine coords zero at an offset position. ie if you had the home switch halfway along a 500mm axis then you would put a Home Off value of 250mm. That would mean that when you homed the machine coords DRO would be set to 250mm as that is the distance you are away from the true machine coords zero.
 Now what I think you want to do is set a G28 position in the Homing and limits page and then if you had
Code("G28")

at the end of the Ref All buttons VB it would move to the position you set after the axis have homed. Be careful though just in case it does something you are not expecting, ie keep the hand on the E-Stop :)
