Force Homing on startup
« on: July 10, 2017, 11:53:16 AM »
I'd like Mach 3 to only initially come out of reset when you push my custom Homing Cycle VB button when Mach 3 first loads. I'm doing this as I'm running soft limits, and want to ensure the user homes the machine every time. Can I create a global variable, such as Homing_Cycle_Complete = false, that keeps Mach in Reset (until a homing cycle is completed)? How would I go about this. I'm new to VB coding for Mach, but not new to coding in general.

Thanks in advance!

Figured it out. I wrote a macro (with the homing script and a dialog box) called M555. This macro is called as part of Mach 3's initialization script. Job done.
