Ref all homing using a Gecko g540 and its xml file
« on: August 01, 2009, 12:20:41 PM »
I am trying to ref all home my new router which has an A axis slaved to the X. When I ref all home the A axis does not move. When using my shuttle or cursor keys these two axis's move in tandem so slaving is working. I am using the Gecko 540 xml file (540b) in Mach3 as my config file. Where in it would I change ref all home to allow a tandem move of these two axis? I much appreciate any help. I have read the various posts on this subject but I can't compare this xml file directly to the file(s) mentioned in those posts. I have a home switch on the X and A axis and a limit on the A which is actually in parallel with the x and a home switches.
Thanks,
Frank

Config menu then General config, you should see a setting called something like Home slaved axis with master.
