Cncjs, HDZ, Proximity switch issues

(Danny borrill) #1

Hey everyone I have been trying absolutely everything to get this working with no success. I upgraded to a HDZ and proximity switches and installed cncjs on my computer, connected fine and I can move it around fine I cannot however find the settings I need for it to work with the shapeoko or where to set them up properly. If I wave something over the switches they trigger the light but no alarm.

I am completely lost now and been trying to sort it myself for over a month. Designed many objects ready for carving but cannot get the machine to work.

Any help much appreciated.

Danny.

Hi Danny

Can you send a video to info@beavercnc.co.uk. I will get you up and running.

Have you ran though the instructions?

Does the machine home?
Depending on settings and machine state, those switches might not throw an alarm.
