New install of Mach3 and now probe won't work anymore
« on: April 10, 2009, 04:24:03 AM »
Hi

This week I had to re-install Mach3 because to much trouble after installing a plugin for a Shuttle Express.

My probing Macro as well as my tool setter macro were working very well.

Probe work great in X and Y direction

For the probing in the Z direction, detect OK, retract but instead of retracting to the value of the GetVar(2002), which is suppose to be negative, the Z axis want to continue pass the Z home switch because when I

check what is the Var 2002, I get a positive value which is not suppose to be like it, it should be negative since the Z axis have been referenced.

Before re-installing Mach3, I made a copy of all my macro so they are all identical.

Don't know what could be the problem and why I get the positive Variable.

Thanks, Jeff
