I'm still getting to know my new Shapeoko 3, but I just installed homing switches and am trying to work out the homing process and coordinate systems. Is the Position shown in Carbide Motion the Work Coordinates or the Machine Coordinates? I'm going through the homing process and setting the Work Coordinates using G10 L20 P1 X0 Y0 Z19.05 (19.05mm probe thickness), but the Position shown in Carbide Motion is not updated to the Work Coordinates as I'd expect.
Code: Select all
$h //start the homing process
G0 X-20 Y-100 //move away from the machine origin to use the probe over the workpiece origin
G38.2 Z-50 F50 //Z-height probe sequence
G10 L20 P1 X0 Y0 Z19.05 //set the Work Coordinate for G54, accounting for 19.05mm probe thickness
G54 //set to the Work Coordinates, perhaps unnecessary
In the Log window, this shows the MPos and WPos correctly, but I'd expect the Carbide Motion Position to reflect the Work Position since that's the most relevant data for machining the part. So, now I'm second guessing what's going on.
Also, when I try to jog after sending these G-Code commands, the machine decides it needs to be somewhere else before performing the small jog, but I'm not sure where it's going and have to shut it off quickly before it collides with something.
