Since PC reset itself, positioning is not correct
« on: September 29, 2015, 10:51:05 PM »
Even when loading known good G files, I get soft limits errors and the cuts don't start at the correct spot in relation to home.
REF ALL HOME works fine, but it doesn't correctly use home to position the parts I am cutting.

Not exactly sure where to start with troubleshooting. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Was able to adjust the offsets for G54 and get it back working.  Not exactly sure how they got corrupted.

If you've ever clicked an axis Zero button, you've changed the G54 offsets

Since I zero the Z axis regularly, I likely hit the y or x by mistake and that would explain what happened.  Its amazing that I have not done that before in many years of use.  I set it up initially and have never touched it since.  I use the G54 offset to define my 0,0 to be in the front left hand corner.  It was easy enough to redo it by just moving to the soft limits in that corner and then re-zeroing the X and Y axis's.

Since I never normally rezero the x and y axis's, I normally don't even regen the paths and everything still works fine.
