Tool Path display
« on: September 29, 2010, 12:28:54 PM »
Tool path displays correct when program is loaded or regenerated, however when program is actually ran the sines for X and Y reversed and causes soft limit warnings and displays tool path accordingly
system configured using DSPMC plug-in by Vidal Systems
Any thoughts

Sounds like your axis may be set up back to front. If you jog positive does the tool go in the same direction as the screen, remember it is the tool and not the table if a knee mill.

All axis jog in the correct direction, The problem seames to be with fixture offsets G55,G56,G57 the program uses G54 Thru G57 and G54 displays correctly all others are reversed.
From MDI you can type G55 x10.0 y-10.0 and the display is correct, the same move executed from program is reversed

Can you zip and attach your xml, your fixtures.dat and your code and I will see if I can replicate here.
The fixtures.dat will be in C:\Mach3\macros\***** where ***** is the name of the profile you are using.

The first thing I see is you have the X, Y and Z Home and Limit switches set up to Port 1 pins 0 to 8. I dont know anything about the DSPMC but cant see how that could be right as normally these pins would be outputs and not Inputs but even if they could be configured in DSPMC as Inputs you are already using them as motor Outputs, so there will be a conflict.
