home slaved axis
« on: June 04, 2011, 06:49:17 AM »
Hello,

I use mach3 for my 3-axis plasma cutter. 4th axis A is slaved with Y-axis. I use home limit switches and spindle A also has one. If I check the "home slaved axis with master axis" under general configuration then it homes like this: first Z then Y and then X. It does not use A switch. If I un check it then it homes like this: first Z then Y and A then X and then A again. Is there a way to configure it so that it homes A only once with Y using both switches?

You may need to modify the Ref All Button Script. Go to OPerator >Edit Button Script, and click the Ref All button. The script should be:

DoButton(24)
DoButton(22)
DoButton(23)

If that doesn't work, try:

DoButton(24)
DoButton(22)
RefCombination(10)

Make sure the "Home Slave With Master" is NOT checked, and restart Mach3 after making any changes.
