Gcode mishaps
« on: April 02, 2016, 05:45:38 AM »
Hi everyone. I am having trouble with either getting false e stops or running out of data on my ether net smooth step. The gcode that I am running is short it is face milling my cnc bed. I had bobcad support look at the file to see if everything is good and it is. Soon times when I first go to run the code the z axis goes from zero away up in the + and it is supposed to go up 2 then go to -.001 and start cutting . I cannot for the life of figure out what is going on need help

Zip and post (attach) your Gcode file.

If you jog the z in the positive (Z+) direction, which way does the machine move, up or down?

I was making the top for the bed drilling holes in it and without running a gcode it still was spontaneously throughing a estop. The more I did the more often it began kicking off even without moving and with or without the spindle on. What do you think is the cause

Is there a physical/mechanical e-stop button wired to your machine ?
If so, is it also wired to your computer so Mach "see's" it ?

I mite have found 1 problem it was with my ether net smooth stepper. I had to go into it and set the filter for rf noise from zero to 1.43. I mite have to increase it by .10 but you can't go over 10.00. I found this out on the net posted by Hood.

Here is my nc file for you to have a look at. The file works good but I have to run it from line 6 or six.
