Home command
« on: August 13, 2019, 09:18:38 PM »
I am experiencing problems with my machine. It seems that the X axis is losing steps (or some other problem). What happens, is that the X axis will get progressively off in the + direction during the carving process. I am not very fluent with G code, but was wondering if it would be possible to enter a Macro command within the G code, which would re-home the machine between each pass, then continue where it left off at. If so, what is the correct G code, or macro I would need to enter? What I am referring to, in particular, is to invoke the same macro command that is built in to the 2010 Screen set. Please HELP!

Hi,
yes you probably could write some code that re-homes your machine but the simple expedient is to fix the
loss of steps.
