Newbie help setup for CNC 6040Z USB2.0 port
« on: July 25, 2015, 05:48:29 AM »
Hi All,

I have a new 6040Z machine I purchased off Aliexpress. It is a newer machine, that has the usb port only.

I have purchased Mach3 and have used some of the script ('porbe') and a plugin called NcUsbPod.dll that the Chinese supplier sent me.

I am following the tutorials as best as I can, though much of the parallel port info is not applicable to me.

I am up to Homing, Limits and Offsets. I have wired in limit switches, and now I am trying to set the machine coordinates. When I hit 'reference all home', my Z axis moves downwards (in the negative direction). From the tutorial, it seems it should home upwards.

Also when I manually trigger the limit switch, it all shuts down, rather than visit the next home switch.

Thanks for checking out my problem!

Hi,

Still having trouble setting up my reference all home functions.. I recorded a video to show my problem. If you think you might be able to help, please have a look >> https://youtu.be/gq942IFDMKw

Notice that the Z axis and the direction of movement after I hit REF ALL HOME..

When I open button script > Reference All Home I get the following script..

Just a thought but it may help if you make your video public so that others may view it.

I sorted the public video settings, it should be open to view..

The Z axis is still going in the wrong direction when referencing though.
