    Re: multiple start thread mach3

    hy, if original thread pitch is 0.75, and inserts are for pitch0.75, then try p0.75 z2.5 and p0.75 z2.5+0.75/2

    thus, don't use pitch1.5 if insert is for pitch0.75

    you may cut with small doc,...
  2. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    so, now you are able to execute g01 ? but are you also spinning the spindle ?
  3. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    sorry for an obvious tip, but did you started the spindle before g01 ? wcs and tool offset are ok ?
  4. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    hy catalist, i don't know ... check the wcs coordinates; put all axis in the middle, then use ' call xyz'; maybe the wcs is wrong ?

    i just checked on the lathe arround here : z_pitch = 12, and...

  6. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    hy catalyst, hand wheel works ? if so, move the z axis up50, then reverse 25; same with xy

    then g91 g00 x10 y10 z10; see what happens :)

  8. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    hy catalist, is not critical to have positive travel = negative travel, thus is not a must to set those ranges equal

    also, it takes more time to make those equal; in other words, is faster to set...
  9. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    a while ago i needed to change the z- soft limit, so to allow a tool to reach it's final depth; i simply enlarged the maximum z travel, by shifting the soft- limit, but still knowing how far i was...
  10. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    maybe he did not encountered the real overtravel case, but i believe that after encoders were removed, rotated and puted back, effect is pretty similar to overtravel

    after rotation, it may be...
  11. Re: Wrong home reference VMC MB-46VA +OVERFLOW Position

    hy catalyst :) there should be a io safety switch inside the electrical cabinet; this allows to move the axis only by using the hand wheel; like this, you move all axis until you hit the hard limit...
