Mach3 Turn will not return "Home" in Diameter Mode.
« on: September 27, 2014, 07:31:06 PM »
I am using Mach3 (licensed) version R3.043.066
I have "Home" switches in both X and Y directions on my lathe.
I have set up referencing as per "Referencing with a Home switch" in the instructions.
If I stay in "Radius" mode, Mach correctly returns the cross slide to its Home position when "Home All" is clicked.

When I change to "Diameter" mode, and click "Home ALL", Mach returns cross slide to 1/2 the value posted in the "Home Off" box
When changing from Machine coordinates to Program coordinates the DRO correctly shows the value in the "Home Off" box as doubled.

Cross slide is correctly referenced as the parts I cut are correct when using either Diameter or Radius mode.
Can I get the cross slide to return to Home (physically adjacent to the Home switch) when using Diameter Mode?
