Ref all home doesn't work?
« on: July 07, 2007, 12:20:42 PM »
My set up is G100/G203V hardware, Mach3 v2.00.081 and G100 plugin v 2.00.076 for a 3-axis CNC.
The limit switch also acts as the home switch (NC micro switch)
In the diagnostics screen I can home each axis in turn, consistently.
If I use the 'Ref All Home' button on any screen, Z homes OK first, then Y, but this runs into the limit switch and does not back off. Mach3 crashes (and G100?).
I have to shut down Mach3, switch off the controller and manually move the Y-axis on the CNC.
This has consistently happened with various versions of Mach3 and the G100 plugin.
What am I missing or doing wrong? Any solutions would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Peter,
   This is a known bug that is being looked at. The work around is to simply home each axis individually. On mine, when I lowered the accel in motor tuning, it homes 90% of the time as it should.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
