You had better post your XML and I will have a look.

Greg,

I am not all that savvy with computers how do I post the XML.  Also I have a legacy version of the software and there are 2 XMlL files do you want them both.

I don't see anything in this code fragment that would stop the Z movement once it has been commenced until it has reached Z-30.

G31 is a probe move, so it is inherent in the move to stop when the probe input goes active.

Sawdustman,  will the probe move stop when triggered if you manually enter the "G31 Z-30 F50" in the MDI?

Greg


Thanks Greg, gradually learning to understand this. Btw. my Z zeroing does not stop with the assigned emulating key either but it stops with the real input. Using now Mach 036, was same with 033.

What do you mean by "Legacy Version".    You should probably be using the latest lockdown version.

The XML will most likely be called, "Mach3Mill.xml", unless you have made a custom one.  Just add it to your post as an attachment.

I looked at your XML and could see no issues regarding probe input.

While I had it loaded I tried a G31 move and it stopped when the probe input was emulated.

I don't know what else to suggest apart from try a clean reinstall of Mach.

Greg

EDIT:  Just had a thought.   :)

If you are testing on a computer without the driver installed then emulation of the probe input will not work.

Do you have the driver installed?

I am running it on both one has the driver installed and the other is not.  both computers are vista if that matters.  I was planning to try it on an old xp computer that I have to see if that works.I have my probe on active hi and I am running 5volts to the mill and a probe lead.  Does it matter how the digitize light is lit?  I was thinking that if it can be emulated that how it lights should not matter.
