Machine will only home on the MDI screen
« on: April 14, 2014, 05:59:45 PM »
I am new to cnc and average with a computer. I had all kinds of issues but after reviewing the videos I had most cleaned up. My question is the machine will only home from the MDI screen not the home screen?

Are you using the default screenset?
If you are have a look at the VB in the RefAll button (Operator menu then Edit Button Script and lastly click the flashing RefAll button)
Paste here what it has.

Not sure what you mean by the  default screen?

Not sure what this means but I could have done this when I tried to setup the auto zero, which is a message I get now when I try to home?



essage( "Auto Zeroing..." )
If IsSuchSignal (22) Then
code "G31 Z-3 F20"
While IsMoving()
Wend
Call SetDRO( 2, .060 )
code "G1 Z1"
End If

You must be using a custom screenset as that is some sort of AutoZero script and is not what should be in the RefAll button. If you go to the MDI page and do the same you will see the code that should be in the RefAll button.

Thanks Hood, that did it!   Is there a better script for auto zeroing

Now let's see what else I can mess up.

I have never used auto zero scripts, my machines dont require it as I have tool changers with previously set tools which I set with a pre-setter hooked direct into Mach. If however you do a search of the forum for "Auto Tool Zero" you should find plenty of info.
