Mach 3 Turn - X axis dives to zero after tool change...
« on: February 26, 2019, 11:46:54 AM »
Good morning all,

I have been working on my lathe trying to clean some of the configuration and screens up and I broke something somewhere.

Here is roughly the program I am running...

G90 G95 G97
T0101
M3 S1000 (X dives to zero - Centerline of part)
G00 Z.1
X1.0
G01 Z-1.0 F.005
G00 X1.1
G91 G28 X0
G28 Z0
G90 G95 G97
T0202
M3 S1000 (X dives to zero - centerline of part)
G00 Z.1
X1.0
G01 Z-1.0 F.005
G00 X1.1
G91 G28 X0
G28 Z0
M05
M30

The lines are commented with the unexpected X move.  Aside from that, the program runs as expected and positions correctly.

Any idea what I screwed up to cause that?

Thanks in advance!

Most likely the M6End.m1s macro. It is not normally used in Turn so open it with the editor and remove the text or comment the text out.
