problem with probe action
« on: November 07, 2017, 06:59:29 PM »
I am a new installer of Mach 4 on a router table, my progress stopped at the touch module function.
When I click on the find Z tool surface Z moves down and the probe trips and nothing else happens. >:(
The probe indicator shows when the probe make contact and not when it is not in contact so that is correct.
I expect the Z to retract and set the Z DRO to 0.0 this does not happen. :o
I am running a PMDX-416 USB board and that is the only plug in I have enabled and Mach 4 is build 3284
Hope there is help from someone here.
Thanks

Ok my problem seems for be fixed I received a reply from Tech Support for a change to the "Probe feed rate" and a change to the Lua file from Mike Abbott.

 Also I was using a wire touch for the testing the probe test and I found I was to fast with the touch.  If I held the contact for a short time longer is would work correctly.
Many thanks to Bryanna for quick replies to my questions.
