So I did it once but can’t repeat it…I thought I wrote it down but can’t find it…
How do you set $28 and $30 to positions on the x-Carve? When I set $28 to be my 0.0 on a multi-bit carve the carve looks great… but I can’t figure out how to set it again…
Thanks in advance for my stupidity…
After you set your XYZ location, go to the drop down menu to: machine; advance; machine inspector. and type: g28.1 and hit enter. Same thing for g30. After you set it, just go to the same line and type g28 or g30 without the 1 and it should go to the assigned location. I haven’t done this in a while but I’m pretty sure that’s how I used to do it. I hope that helps!
Thanks, that worked like a charm… I haven’t mastered the bit change with out moving the 611 so I am using g28… that way I can home then g28 back to 0,0,0.
Have a great day…
G28 and G30 require a homing sequence first.
Then jog the machine to your intended G28 parking position, press CTRL+SHIFT+D and write G28.1 in the Console window, followed by Enter
For G30 do the same, jog to intended position and write G30.1 + Enter.
So whenever you rehome the machine ($H) or Unlock with homing in Easel the parking spots remain consistent.
Work zero work in the same way as all three spots are stored as offset values relative to machine zero
No problem. Theres an option to lock the motors in Easel. I dont remember if it was in the settings menu or when you hit the “carve” button. I dont use my xcarve anymore so I cant check for you. Also, there is a way that involves opening the controller and changing the switches to lock the motors. There’s a topic in the forum about that on how is done. That’s what I did to mine and never had a problem again changing the bits .If I find it , I’ll send you the link!.
I found this youtube video on how to lock the motors. That’s pretty much how I did it! Give it a try!
I have the G28.1 and G28 figured out for where I start most of my carves. Does G30.1 and G30 command give me another location to set and reference if I need a different location to use?
Yes. Did you try and see something different?
WELL SON OF A B…IT WORKED. NICE. Thanks.
Yes, G30 work exactly like G28, they do the same and together offer two independent parking spots.
G28 is the primary one and most often used in most PP´s.
