Kind of Like Limit Switch Resetting or Something
« on: September 30, 2014, 09:31:04 AM »
I do mostly back and forth carving using Mach3. Since I have stepper motors and not servo, the computer doesn't know if steps are missed. I sometimes have this problem when I do deeper carves.

So I was thinking, what if I could set up Mach3 to touch the limit switch at the end of each line and then accurately go on the next line. If I was able to do this it would be more accurate, and would automatically make up for missed steps if any occur. It would kind of set it back in line each pass.

Does anybody know if this is possible with Mach3?

It would make FAR more sense to simply fix it so it doesn't lose steps....
