M4a & Mach3 startup ???'s
« on: November 14, 2012, 03:46:12 PM »
Hello & Help
 We got a new M4a mill & installed the Mach3 software , never got the x4xml file , found one on the net & loaded it . after trying a few things i can get z to home out but x & y just run past the limits . the home switches show they're working .  Any help would be appreciated !!
            Thanks , Steve

When you tested the switches did both the limit AND the home led light up or just the limit led?

I don't see any logical reason for it NOT to work IF the Homes are showing trips. Perhaps post your XML file and have HOOD take a look see.
