Custom Homing code
« on: April 05, 2013, 07:36:56 AM »
Hi all
I did this piece of code that is attached to the "Ref All Home" button. I have a tangential knife on the rotary (A) axis that has to be locked by a pin and then zeroed.
This code does not work on first startup of Mach. If I traversed the a axis once, then it will work. It seems to sit and wait for the first turn to complete but it does not turn at all. I think it hase something to do with feed rates.
Can someone help please?
