Homing issue
« on: January 25, 2012, 08:47:49 AM »
Hi
I recently activated my copy of Mach3 but am unsure whether this has anything to do with my problem. When I run the Smart tool Setup and it travels to the home co-ordinates it goes to a completely different area of the machine. I have checked the home co-ordinates under configure/homing limits and they are correct. However the smart tool setup is not driving the cutter to those co-ordinates.
Also, when the tool tries to go to the smart tool touch off co-ordinates they are now beyond the Y axis soft limits.
These problems did not exist prior to my activating the product, but seem to be a settings issue. Can someone please walk me through setting this up?

What are the "smart tool setup" yo are talking about? Is this a function of a screenset you are using?

Smart tool is a function in Mach which automates the touch off operation.

Not something I am familiar with, where would I find this on the screenset? Maybe post a screenshot?

Here's a screenshot. I'm new to Mach3 and I know there are a wide range of screens etc but this is the one I got with my machine.

That is not a standard Mach screenset, there will be VB code in these buttons. Did you purchase the screenset from someone? Suggest the best idea would be to contact the person who supplied/made the screenset to see if they can help.
