Loosing Y Axis position at the end of job.
« on: April 06, 2006, 11:04:27 AM »
I am using Mach 3 and I am having problems sometimes after completing running a G-Code sequence the mill will not go back to the proper Home position...... the Y-Axis will normally be off.

In other words instead of going back to the home position it will be off roughly 1/4 inch.

The problem always seems to be with the Y-Axis

The Position on the screen shows "0" for all of the X-Y-Z Axis's for both the Machine and Tool postions.... but the Y-Axis will not be at the correct location.

Here is a sample set of code which this occurred:

Why don't you turn down the Accel for the y axis a bit and see if that helps.
Fixing problems one post at a time ;)
