Re: Scaling issue on Y axis for tool rack

Tom,
No, I did not realize this. Now that I do, everything makes sense again and I have sorted out the problem I was having.
I apologize for being dumb and taking up your valuable time, but thanks all the same. Your support is second to none!

Re: Scaling issue on Y axis for tool rack

Hello Tom, Thank you for your response. I have checked by moving over 10 large moves and then coming back to the initial position and that is still at the correct original physical position. I have checked the cnts/in (The units are in inches in the machine setup screen) for the machine by marking a...

Scaling issue on Y axis for tool rack

Greetings, I have been setting up a tool rack for ATC upgrade. Tools are spaced along y-axis with the distance from T1 to T12 about 900mm. When moving to the absolute Y positions for tool holders there seems to be a scaling error. The actual position gets increasingly out until the final tool positi...

Re: Halt and safe Z move

Tom, I have attached the updated, and fully operational, C program for any who may be interested. I have placed it in the 'loop forever' section in my machines Init program to monitor for spindle thermal protection. Also, I was wondering where I can find a list of all the functions like the JOB_ACTI...

Halt and safe Z move

Hello, I am having trouble getting the Z-axis to move to safeZ height after implementing a feedhold/halt in Gcode through a C program. The purpose of the C program is to include thermal protection for the spindle and run the C-program when a thermal switch opens. The program runs fine except that th...

KMotionCNC default units on open

Hello Tom,
I have recently upgraded to ver435b and noticed KMotionCNC defaults to open in inches.
I work in mm and would like the default to be in mm. How do I set this?

Re: Z height changes on execute

Yes, that was it! Tool length compensation was set by default for T1 at 1mm, I guess by way of example but it took me a while to find it. This little machine does not have any tool changer so I didn't consider tool length offsets and assumed they would be all zero by default. I will be more careful ...

Z height changes on execute

Hello Folks, When I begin running some G-code I have a problem with the Z-axis resetting 1mm higher than it was zeroed at before starting the program, resulting in it cutting 1mm deeper into the stock. This is not consistent, it will run the same program fine sometimes and other times it will reset ...
