feedhold problems
« on: September 09, 2006, 11:40:05 AM »
I'm having some issues with feedhold temporarily losing position and thus ruining parts.  I say temporarily because as soon as the file is finished, the machine will find it's start point(g0x0y0 ends up being right on the money after the file is done).  The toolpath display will show this position loss(a deviation from toolpath center by as much as .25"), and thus indicates where the machine is at also.  This helped me eliminate the controller/machine  and be able to reproduce the position loss while running offline and cycling through feedhold and start a few times to get this to happen.  This appears to be a random problem, though it happens more often than not(of course when I press feedhold is random).  I'm running Mach3's latest version 1.90.081. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Are you pressing Feed hold or STOP?
