Problem mapping Ports and Pins to Mach3 diagnostic LEDs
« on: April 04, 2016, 12:34:50 AM »

I'm working on a friend's plasma table at the moment trying to get torch height control working, and this issue has got me seriously confused.

In ports and pins, the pins are setup under Torch Up and Torch Down, but on the diagnostic screen the LEDs for M2, M3 and M4 home light up where the THC LEDs should light up.

This has been tested both while cutting and using the test mode of the THC controller.

It's a Gecko G540 controller with an Ethernet smooth stepper.

I should also point out that the machine was looked at by 2 previous people to myself.

Best thing I can think of is reinstalling mach3 and setting up from scratch, incase something has become corrupt or something silly.

I'm trying to figure out the whole G28.1 thing but that's something for another day.

Thanks in advance,
