Avid Pro 60120
When Standing at Foot of table
Existing “Home” position is Bottom Left
Desired “Home” position can be either Top Left or Top Right
I have sucessfully changed the Mach4 “Machine Setup”/“Homing Setting” to send the X and Y Axes to either of the desired new “Home” position, including moving the Y sensor when needed and changing Neg to Pos where needed. In both cases the system appears to sucessfully move to the desired position, stops properly, and “Soft Limits” turn “On”, BUT that is when the problem(s) begin.
Once the system has Homed what happens is either the X or Y movement causes this issue:
When homing to Top Left and then trying to Jog, moving the Y will work as expected but when trying to jog the X it will try to move a hair, stop and cause Mach4 to “disable”. When I press “Enable” the X will now Jog as desired.
When homing to Top Right and then trying to Jog, moving the X will work as expected but when trying to jog the Y it will try to move a hair, stop and cause Mach4 to “disable”. When I press “Enable” the Y will now Jog as desired.
In both cases, if I try to “Go to work X, Y, Zero” right after it Homes nothing happens at all. I must Jog, reEnable and then I can “Go to work X, Y, Zero”
And then the Bigger issue happens (maybe it is normal after system is “Disabled” and then “Enabled”)
What will then happen is although I have already “Homed” the system if I try to run a GCode it alerts me that the system “Must be Homed” prior to running a job.
What am I missing? Are there other settings I must change , such as “Offsets” possibly?
Is there any additional Info needed from my end?
All/Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated…
BTW, I have sucessfully moved the Home position back to Bottom Left, and all works well, until I am able to make the desired change.
