Touch Probe Problem
« on: March 28, 2009, 08:25:44 AM »
I have the touch probe setup on my machine and sometimes it feeds down touches and comes up .300 and stops as it should

But sometimes it goes up 2 inches dwells and goes up again.....Why is it doing this...?

I believe the latest version is here in post 257 from Greg.

He may even pop in on this thread to chime in as well-

Possibly because you are starting the script when in a G91 condition.

If you are using a Z zero routine (not clear if that is what you are asking about) then the post Budman pointed to shows a script which covers for that situation.

A lot of the script examples that are around, don't.
