Initialization problem
« on: December 03, 2011, 02:06:25 AM »
Hi,

I have G28.1 X0Y0 command in general settings screen set, to init the axis when I first start MACH3.
It works, BUT before execution of this command, the machine automatically goes high speed to it remembered machine zeroes.
This makes some problems if I move manually the spindle head, when the machine is powered off.

How to turn this OFF?

Thanks!

What exactly are you trying to achieve?
If wanting to simply automatically reference to your home switches on startup then its probably best to do it via a macro.

Exactly, and how should this macro looks?

If you want all axis to home at once then the macro would be

RefCombination (7)

If you wanted say the Z first then X and Y together it would be
DoButton 24
RefCombination (3)

You would then save as a macro with a number over 100, so for example if you dont already have a macro called m101 you could use that. Just save it to your profiles macro folder as m101.m1s

Then put m101 in the initialisation string.
