Setting zero positions for G30
« on: November 12, 2017, 11:16:28 AM »
I've been trying to use G30, but it seems that no matter what I do, it always goes to machine zero (same as G28).

The Mach4 Mill GCode manual says that the #Variables for the P2 position are #5301, #5302 and #5303 (X, Y and Z respectively).  I've set those to what I want, both using MDI and using the register tool under diagnostics, to no effect.
I found what seems like a red flag, in that when I open up the Fixture Offsets window, the values I set for #5301-#5303 are showing up in the row for G58 fixture offset.
This suggests to me that these may not be the correct addresses.  Is it possible that the manual is out of date with respect to these addresses, or am I missing something?

I'm running a pretty fresh installation of Mach4 Hobby (within the last couple of weeks),
