Pressing reset sets machine coords to zero
« on: February 10, 2012, 11:05:15 AM »
Why does pressing the big red reset button set my machine coords to zero?  ??? This is a big waste of time if for some reason I need to press the reset button in the middle of a job. I have to re-home the machine. Fortunately the user coords stay put so I can usually continue where I left off.

Thanks,

Dennis

You are going to have to ask the person that BUILT the machine and configured the button. (;-)

Yeah, but the guy in the mirror is just as confused as I am?  ;)

Your answer does give me a better idea what the problem is.

Thanks,

Dennis

 Chech the button and also the Initialization String, and if Use on ALL "Resets" is checked.

If you have pressed Reset when an axis is moving then it is only wise to rehome.

It's usually a good idea to mention that you're using a KFLOP and the dynomotion plugin.

Yes, I would typically agree that is a very pertinent piece of information. I was approaching the question from more of a using Mach3 only perspective.

I really appreciate your guys help.

Are you not using a KFLOP? Your post on CNC Zone was in the Dynomotion forum.

A standard Mach3 install will not change any coordinates when hitting E-Stop.

Bad idea....  I believe in the KFlop plug-in settings there is a checkbox to enable re-running your Init.c whenever E-Stop is activated.  Un-check that.
