« on: September 12, 2007, 10:12:23 AM »
Is this possible in mach or does it only home sequentially?

thanks

You can do both or any combination that you like. For example I like to hone the Z axis and then the XY at the same time. To do this you need to use the refcombination() command and this command is explained int he Mach2 Customization manual.

Thanks

Thanks Brian - According to the manual: this function was deprecated back in M2 as more general ways are now available. Don't know obviously if that's actually the case. Anyway, I just tested it in the VB editor but obviously I don't want to have to do that every time so... any suggestions where I should stick it? - careful... I'd like to be able to have it completely transparant i.e. both for ref all home and G20,30 etc.

You can put the VB code in the Ref all button on the main screen... I think you will want to have the followiing:
Dobutton(22) 'Ref the X
RefCombination(3)'Ref the X and Y

You can use the Operator/Edit button script to eddit the VB in the button... You need to press the save button after you are done
thanks

Ta B.

Before I give it a go - what V Mach are you using - I'm on 1.84.002 and there's no Operator/Edit button script.

Thought you might say that but was hoping you wouldn't... I did upgrade a while back but limits don't work properly and yet they're fine in 1.84.002 (http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/forum/index.php?topic=3562.0) so I downgraded again...

You might be able to do it via Mach3screen, its the old screen designer and allowed you to edit VB buttons. Its now a lot easier as you can do it from with in Mach but as you have found the older versions dont allow it.
