I know ive made like 10 posts today…im super pumped to get this thing working. This is the one thing im so lost about and im literally working with a 3 Axis Hass today, which is what might be throwing me off the most.
I have a Rambo 1.4 with dual end-stops and a LCD.
My MPCNC isnt totally put together but I got it wired up like 80%(missing z) and fired up the LCD/Rambo board. I dont have the belts connected yet but I should have that done tonight. I got the steppers to move with the LCD and also on Repetier.
Now the fun part, on the Hass I use at work we move the spindle to where we want and set it using G54-55 on the machines screen. Then in the beginning of the Gcode we tell it which one we want to use.
So on the MPCNC with ESTLCAM how would you do that? Or how do you do that on the LCD screen. Do you manually move the axis with the lcd screen or Repetier on to the desired home on the part (X,Y,Z) you want to machine and somehow tell it that is its new G54?
Im told that the dual endstops are the “home” but how does it know that, is that considered x0/y0? When you work with ESTLCAM do you have to modify the code every time for a new home? Granted im sure its not as complicated as im making it out to be but maybe you guys can break it down.
