Home position change every connect
« on: December 23, 2016, 08:35:24 PM »
Every time i connect to the nano, as in clicking control laser or disconnecting by right clicking the emergency stop button and then reconnecting using the lightning bolt the position changes to -14.8 on x and -11.6 on y.
What am i doing wrong?

Was running version 1.3"P" and reinstalled 1.3"S" with no change.

It sounds like you have a stored position in the Nano, this is used if you have limit/home switches and want to keep positions between power downs.

In the Machine menu, click "Clear Grbl Positions" and those will be erased and you'll get 0,0 back as the default.

(oh, and my guess is you clicked Home Machine but don't have switches so that sets a permanent home position)

Yup, that fixed it.  I dont know how i got those coordinates in there for the first place.

Anyway thanks for the quick reply and happy holidays.
