help with homing please
« on: December 31, 2020, 03:12:37 PM »
Due to my stupidity, I had to reload mach4 onto a new computer.  In the process of re-setting up the machine, I am trying to home the axis.  They will home just fine but when I do, Mach4 quits communicating with the ESS.  Any ideas on why this is happening?  And more importantly, how to fix it...  The machine will move just fine until i home it.  Oh, and I am not homing to switches yet.  I am homing in place.  I have disconnected all the switches.  I am not getting any errors.

I figured it out finally.  Apparently, if you have one motor slaved to another, you only have to home the master.  Who knew?
And BTW, if you are curious, I knocked the first computer off the stand with a ladder while installing a new outdoor faucet for my wife.  No good deed ever goes unpunished.
