« on: November 22, 2018, 03:09:28 PM »
Hi Everyone

I just got a copy of Mach 4 V2 and running a ESS
I setup my motor and when i try to Zero I get a error message
Axis 0 Commanded While Disable

I did not have this error when i was running the demo
Anyone have any ideas ??

Thanks in advance

Hi,
what that means is that the set of instructions that do the work of homing  your machine are calling for an axis (motor 0) that
is not enabled.

Have a look at Configure/Control/Axis Mapping per the attached. My machine has three axes, X,Y,Z and they are motors 0,1,2.
When my machine homes the homing instructions call for each to be homed.

You have two choices:
1) Enable the axis (motor) that is requested. Note this will prevent the error you have described but unless that axis (motor) is fitted
    then it will never move and therefore never home and that's a fault too.
2) Change the homing (referencing) instructions to call only those axes (motors) that you have enabled and installed.

Just as a matter of interest, I haven't tried it but what would happen do you suppose if say you had motor 0 assigned to the X axis as I do
but don't have a X axis home switch assigned? I suspect that would give a similar error to that you have described.

Hi. I also have " Mach4 Axis 3 Commanded While Disable" error on Go To Work Zero command. Is there a proper solution to this? Thank you.

Fixed it by editing "Ref All Home" button in screen editor.

You can just enable motor 3 in the mach config, or edit the button script.

Hi Craig

You were right, my problem was i have motor 3 enable
My X axis uses motor 0 and slave motor 3, so i though i had to enable motor 3
when i took the check out everything was ok,
Seams i still get the error from time to time but everything is working well
probably something in the button scripts

Thanks
