Hi everyone
first i want to thank you all for sharing your knowledge and helping newbies like me :)
my name is John and im from Orlando Florida
i put together a 5 axis cnc machine ,which i originally purchased it from china ,but later i had to replace the break outboard and every single stepper motor and also the power supplies...
i have a very big problem with mach3 ,i dont know if fusion 360 which i get my gcodes , when mach3 working on a gcode ,sometimes it misses and completely mess up the coordinates... it happens when the z axis is stepping down another level... for example if the machine is stepping down 0.1mm each time ,when the entire gcodes of -0.1 ,is completely done ,and (during that many times the z axis goes up and down...) everything is fine ,then suddenly for example ,if the z level is -0.5 and now its going to do the next pass of gcodes with -0.6 ,the coordinate system completely changes ,its like you move the X axis like 10 or 20 mm .... and it starts rest of the program from there... and that of course means complete messing up the work and sometimes the tool breaks...  even in the visual toolpath of mach3 ,you can see the new path is being generated in a complete different location.... so this is something even the computer recognize... but i dont know what causes it ... i cant say its because of a gcode or not ,because some of the gcodes which have been running fine , i seen it happens to them...
i am very sorry that i introduce myself like this ,please let me know if i should write this in another topic ,and what should i write the subject to get the best help and of course the next person who may have the same problem ,could find it easier...
sorry again ,and thank you all for help and support ,if you guys want me to give more info ,i will ,i am a newbie... so forgive me if i am short and not explaining well

New To the Forum -

Hi all, I'm Brad. A machinist from PA. I own my company that makes parts for the medical industry. Recently, I bought a used 2007 Syil (X3) mill, so my CNC journey begins now. I have zero knowledge of CNC or Mach3 so I'm trying to learn.

Glad to be join this group and hope to learn as much as possible.

When asking questions be sure to post in the proper area.
Welcome aboard!

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

That wasn't a question. It's the reason why I'm here.

I realized that you weren't asking a question. I was just giving some friendly advice.

I have a 6040 engraving machine it came without limit switch and I have been using it like this for the last three years without any problem I decided to put limit switches on it so that I could home the machine for a reference point I have put all my limit switches on the machine and connected them to the controller
I am able to home Z axis in the right direction and Y axis in the right direction.
The X axis is giving me a problem if I get the X to home in the right direction it will not pull away from the microswitch it stops momentarily then moves on a small amount before stopping if I get the X moving away from the home in the opposite direction I can get it to bounce away from the microswitch then reverse it and it works but now X is in reverse as if it’s been flipped no matter what settings I do I cannot get it reversed back without messing up the homing
Hotkey does not seem to help changing polarity does not help I’m sure there is something simple I am missing out on
As I look at the front of the machine I am trying to get the X to home to my left and from left to right count positive originally when I first got the machine I had the problem where if I press the arrow to the left it would move to the right and vice versa after messing about with the settings I manage to get it to go in the right Direction
I had no limit switches so it did not affect me
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction
