New problem with Mach
« on: September 13, 2010, 05:22:59 PM »
I managed to cut a few parts correctly. I am starting a new run of parts that I haven't made before. I noticed that my x coordinates are flipped about the y axis. What I mean is I need the first hole at -1.7250,.5250. I need the second hole at 2.6393,-.6377. Mach will drill the first hole at the second holes location. I've checked my g code and it is correct. I didn't change anything in my settings between yesterday and today, but obviously something has happened. Any ideas??

Not understanding, you say Mach drills the first hole at the second holes coords and that it seems like the X is flipped about the Y. If that was the case would the hole not be X1.7250 rather than X2.6393
You sure the first hole is being seen by Mach?
Can you attach your code?

Hi Hood, sorry I guess I wasn't clear. Let's start over. The first hole is to be drilled at -1.7250, .5250 in Quadrant 2 (upper left), Mach drills it in Quadrant 3 at -1.7250, -.5250. I did go into my motor settings and change Y axis DIR to Active Low. Now everything is running properly, but why didn't this occur when I first set up Mach?

Sounds like somehow your axis has been reversed, maybe someone changed the reverse setting in Homing and Limits?

I don't use Homing and Limits. I checked it and nothing is active.

Strange. Hopefully all will run fine from now.
