z steper trouble
« on: December 14, 2012, 08:25:27 PM »
Z code looses the computer after a code post and just keeps going. Nothing on the computer stops it. Only E-Stop does and if you don't clear the DRO it will start back up when you reset the E-Stop.

Code G01 Z1.0000 and the DRO moves to 0.0001 and that's where it stays. The mill will lower till it bottoms out or you hit E-Stop.
I was resetting the steps when this started and I have checked the steps and that is right, I checked the stepper cable and it has continuity at all pins, , Whats next please.

Dont see anything wrong in your xml so really it sounds like a hardware issue. This is especially so as you say the DRO in Mach stops, Mach gets its readings in the DRO from monitoring the pulses it puts out at the PP so it would seem to suggest hardware.
Dont suppose you have a scope? If you do you sould confirm whether that is the case or not.

I don't have a scope. I don't know even if I could rent one.
