Homing in screen 2017

Postby naijin » Wed Jun 20, 2018 1:39 am

Hi there, I have just purchased a copy of Gerr21 2017 screen set, I just have a question about homing and home switches, when I press the Auto Zero button I get a message "Z axis is not referenced, Home Z axis before attempting to zero too"
there in lays a big problem I do not have any home switches on my machine, how does one over come this problem, are there setting some where that I can turn on or off for homing?

Jog the Z axis to the top of it's travel, and click the Home Z button.

You don't need home switches to home the axis. Without switches, the home position is the current position when you click the home button.

The screenset requires you to home the Z axis, so it knows where the top of your Z travel is, so it won't crash into it.
