sorry for the wrong Syntax.

so it Looks like you Controller is making a rewind of the code.

you have tryed two seperate methodes for homing (DoButton() and G28.1) with the same result.


i have seen in the Manual of your Motion Controller, that you can select different homing mode's.
have you "played" with this configurastion ?
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Hi,
Gerry is way more experienced in VB than I, if he suggests:
Not IsLoading() that is the correct syntax.

Craig

There goes any credibility that I had.....

I am not quite sure what you mean by first part - are you suggesting putting G28.1 in the Macro code?

I have not selected different homing modes, I didnt think that would affect this... but at this point, why not try everything?    BTW are you talking about the options listed on page 37?  http://www.cdxhctech.com/upload/201712/20171229133856963.pdf

I have not tried those options.   I could I suppose as I am willing to try anything at this point.

I've been very busy lately but figured I would come over and update you all.

It turns out the machine seller supplied us with an illegitimate copy of Mach3.    It is also presumed that the XML machine profile supplied by the seller may not be working the way it is supposed to.     If the XML file is in fact "not right" then that would explain why the same issues persisted in the rolled back version I downloaded from the website.

We own a legitimate license now and my next move will be to build a new machine profile from scratch.    Realistically I wont get to this for the next week or two as both our machines are busy keeping up with production.

Thank you all for the help and suggestions thus far.
