Mach4 stopping (Licensed and not demo)
« on: June 04, 2017, 04:10:21 PM »
When trying to run a test file on my new installed Mach4, I get this error everytime it is about to start a new task (at this file it was from facing, and over to making some holes. All with the same bit)
Cant get past that point. This happends to other files as well.

And yes, It's registered and not a demo.

(Read status point, something about the same tool)

I have found out for now that it stops on M command, as i removed the M9 in the file and it ran fine, untill the end where i forgot to remove one M9 and there it stopped again.

I have found the solution now, and wanted others to know.

As i do run 4 steppers with dual on Y axis, i had enabled motor 0,1,2,3 and set stepper 3 as slave on stepper 1. But as i didnt disable stepper 3 afterwards it was still waiting for the Pokeys57cnc to report a stop on last stepper. I didnt know that mach4 and pokeys communicated at that level as i dont have either servos or closed loop stepper, but log shows that it does.

So disabling motor3 as it was moved as slave on motor 1 fixed the problem and now it runs fine beside probing..
