Pokeys57CNC/Mach4 and 2 Probes
« on: August 17, 2021, 11:28:56 AM »
Hi Everyone

First post on the forum.
I'm on final stage of my build (3 axies CNC router)
I have successfully  installed Auto Z high for tracking tool high on the manual tool change.
Now I would like to install corner finder.
I have set up in Mach4 pin 16 as Probe 1 (g31.1) and on the diagnostic screen looks like is working fine, when I short wires I do have green LED.
But when I try preform edge finding Mach4 or Pokeys ignores the signal.
This is happening when I'm using MDI and build in Touch function in Mach4.

The confusing part is when the G31.1 is happening it will ignore probing signal, but it will react to G31!?

Thanks for all the suggestions, maybe there is a setting I'm missing seaware.


O and one last thing I did try to open ticket at PoLabs Support portal, but never received email to activate account. I have try 3 different email addresses with no luck did anyone experienced similar behaviour

Anyone?

No one did attempt to have Auto Z probe and Corner finder/work zero probe??

Hi spawacz_rider,

It is usually bad to make multiple posts on the same subject but in your case may I suggest that you also post your question in the Mach4 General Discussion section of the forum - it is then perhaps more likely to get a response from other members.

I would pass the probe signals through a relay that is switched by an M code into G31

I was thinking about that but my Auto Z hight is NC and touch probe for Y and X will be NO.
So this whould not work, at leaset whithout coding in the background (I'm not good at that)

Thanks anyway
