4th axis failure results in inability to home (resolved)

Post by jacobhawkins » Fri Dec 15, 2017 9:31 am

My 4th axis blew up, I'll deal with that issue later, but I'd like to be able to use the machine without the 4th axis. Unfortunately, it won't home without homing my 4th axis also. I'm dead in the water now. Is there a way to edit the homing process to remove the 4th axis? Pics below are my screen when it boots up, as it's running the first successful part of the homing cycle, and the failure message.

I sent a message to Centroid this morning as well.

Reply from Centroid showed me where to find the home program and suggested an edit. Put a semicolon in front of the 4th axis moves. That stopped the machine from trying to home that axis, but it seems it didn't complete the homing cycle enough and the control still says the machine is not homed. Both edits in the pics below were tried.

Fixed! Made the edits to the homing program. Then had to change parameter 131 to 61.000 so it would allow me to change to 3 axis machining. Once I did that, it ignored the 4th axis and its up and running again.
