two issues....
« on: April 26, 2015, 11:56:11 AM »
After installing a different Mach 3 version, my cnc is acting funny regarding two issues.
One, for some reason the numeric keypad no longer works unless I use the MPG window with it. In my previous version, I was able to use the numeric keypad to move the axis.  I am not sure what needs to be done...
Two, until the upgrade, I was able to use the "run from here" command and have my job continue. Now, the same command sends the machine axis to the extremes. I am not sure what needs to be set in the config file in order to prevent this from happening.
thanks
tony

What version of Mach and what controller are you using.  Is the NUMLOCK on or off ??

I am using v 066.  Now I have another issue.
In a program with two different tools, when I change to the second tool and hit the "run cycle", the machine goes off the axis.

V.066 has issues I would backup to V.062.

This is funny. I had v062 but could not get the M6start to work without a crash. l was told to go to the later version, and now I am having different issues.
I added some code to the M6Start, but the Z axis always wants to move up, past its safe limits and crashes.
I am simply stumped.

What code are you running in the M6start I have never had any problem with it. Are you using SafeZ ?
