I have a strange issue that started happening today. When I try and initialize my DIY Bitsetter in CNCJS (using the neilferreri macro) the program triggers Alarm 4 when it gets to G38.2.
Here’s why this is strange:
- This exact setup was functioning a week ago as intended. I’ve made no changes to the hardware or software of my machine or controller (I did install an enclosure on the machine, but I didn’t touch any of the wiring).
- Probing XYZ and just Z using Neil’s macros works just fine
- This would imply my DIY Bitsetter is at fault (it’s just a momentary NO button connected to the standard probe block), but when I test it with or without the probe installed on it, it works as intended with no shorts.
I’m at a complete loss what could be causing the issue. Initially I thought it was because I’d zeroed my Z axis so close to global zero (tall stock), but I even after restarting the whole setup multiple times, rehoming, and zeroing XYZ and just Z on the wasteboard, it still errors out at the same place in the macro.
DIY Bitsetter is based on this one:
Anyone got any ideas? I’d upload proof my DIY Bitsetter button is working (tested w/ a multimeter), but the Youtube app crashes every time I try to upload a video
