Estop changes the way the table functions.

Post by trucks1948 » Mon Sep 14, 2020 3:24 pm

I moved my whole set up. Then had a hard drive go bad.I installed a new Mach3 disc and liscence.Now I do not get correct table movement. When I use my keyboard arrow keys. Most the time the z will up and down, most of the time the x and y don't move. But when i cycle the estop things change. It may work on the z or if I cycle again the x- may work or maybe the y+.When i say they work ,the z works as it should the x and y try to work. The hotkeys have been set as have the ports and pins.any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks.

I would try reloading Mach 3 you may want to get a fresh download from their site, I use version 067.
I would also rechech the motor output in the ports and pins table. You pins may be different for step and dir.
