verifyaxis macro only moves z-axis
« on: December 24, 2009, 05:29:55 PM »
Hi!

When I execute the "verfiy position" macro (verifytest.m1s), only the z-axis is being verfied.

The code in the macro is as follows:

VerifyAxis  false

Any ideas?

best regards!

Do you have home switches on all axes?  It will only verify axes with home switches.

@ Ray:

Yes, I have home switches on all axis. Referencing is no problem.

I seem to recall there was a problem with the verify a while back, are you using an older version?
However saying that I dont know if it works properly in the latest versions because all my machines use the SmoothStepper and I dont think it works with it but even if it did as far as my mach is concerned my machines dont have home switches. I do the homing in the servo drives.

Here is a little weirdness.
I do a lot of simulation on my desk PC. It has a printer so I didn't load the PP drivers when upping to 032.
X,Y and Z enabled.
For some reason, with an emulated hotkey set for the home sw on each axis, the led's show the keypress on the diag screen but the axis does NOT see the emulation while HOMING without the PP driver installed, the axis runs forever.
Also, the verify function ONLY runs the Z axis when the PP driver is NOT there but with the driver, all 3 axis's work as they should.
I didn't try it w/the Special driver but will later out of curiosity.
I did verify the above with ver 020 and 032.

It doesn't even attempt to reference here with the Special driver....or Verify.

I am using the actual Mach version with the Smothstepper. It seem to be the same fault, that Russ describes when simulating Mach3 without PP driver.
May be a macro with three "singleverify" commands for each axis will work. I will try this later, but I am not experienced in writing macros...
