Send all axis home

ADS
We have a custom built drilling cnc machine. we just upgraded to the masso from mach and we are trying to get it working the same.



with mach we had 2 physical buttons

button one- run program

button two - send all axis home ( back to zero), not reset to zero



I cant seem to get these working as before



It seems that the masso controller wants a rewind before the cycle start will work and home button just zeros everything out



any help would be awsome

Hi ADS

The rewind button needs to be pressed the first time you load your Gcode.

As I understand it you are cycling the same program multiple times so if you add an M30 to the end of your Gcode you will not need to rewind it to run again as the M30 rewinds it for you.

You can simply press the cycle start button to run the program again when you are ready.

For the homing of the Axis you could try using the M01 command and turn on optional stop when you first start Masso CTRL + O

https://www.masso.com.au/masso-documentation/?section=m01-optional-program-stop

When you get to the point where you want to home you machine add the M01 and then follow it with a G28 or a G00 move of the axis to where you want them to go.

When Masso reaches the M01 it will stop allowing you to do whatever it is you need to do until you press the Cycle start button at which point it will home for you. Follow it with an M30 and the program will rewind ready to start again when you press the Cycle Start Button.

Eg
Your Gcode File

M01

G00 X0 Y0 Z0 A0

M30

Hope this helps

Regards

Or using G28
