Hi @kbcnc

Your axis are all in the wrong orientation. You first need to figure out where they need to be and then connect the appropriate motors and invert if needed. The video below will help get your orientation right to start with.




Hope this helps

Cheers

I am a bit confused, below I have a video of the machine homing, I have it this way because is easy to change the tool and load material. Also I have some screen shots of my masso setup. Please let me know we what you see.

In your drawing you have the X & Y axis travel as negative when it is positive.

Usually the home position is in the lower left corner of the machine, with X across the front travelling left to right for positive values and the Y travelling away from you in the positive direction. Now you have rotated your machine 90deg CCW which places your home position in the lower right but you still have the X & Y axis in the correct relationship with the home position.

But in the Home screen you have set the Home position as X=14.5 & Y=20 so now your XY zero position is in the upper left corner and all your XY travels are negative.

So in the Home screen set your X & Y home position values to zero and you should right to go.

Regards,

Arie.

I will try that when I get home, I think I try that and the machine would not move when in home position.

Also I notice when jogging the axis to the limit switch. The Z and Y axis would stop But the X axis would go past the limit switch. When homing the machine XYZ limit switch works to stop the machine.

Thank you.

Try change home screen, X and Y zero does not work, X and Y axis does not move away from limit switch once home. So it has to have X 14.500" and Y 20.000" this way X and Y axis move away from limit switch. Also X axis does not stop at limit switch when jogging to limit switch. I would stop at limit switch when home is activated.



Thank you

Its because the settings somewhere are still wrong.

The axis might be traveling in the negative range and not positive . You might need to add a negative in the axis maximum travel for each axis. So it should be -15.00 for the X axis and -20.00 for the Y.

I know I have to figure out where it the setting . I try to put negative values in the maximum travel in the X and Y axis, but apparently you can't it give an error.

The minimum value has to be less than the maximum value, so put the -ve value in the minimum box and zero in the maximum box.
