Tool Probe not reacting

Happy new year
I have newest master with gmoccappy
And versers probe screen in a tab.
If I probe it reacts on my probe as expected.
But in gmoccappy when I try to use m6 with tool length it does not recognize the prob signal. Only stops with error that max length is reached.

What have I done wrong / forgotten to connect?

Thx in advance
Mike

What have you connected to what?

May even be, that the probe screen does disable the touch, if the page is not active.

We will need to see your config to go on.

In the meantime I see some reactions but I'm struggling eventually with basics:

My z runs from top +0 to -119 down
The values in ini and settings that you describe are always positive.

Do I have to give the values positive, means you calculate them from min position
or do I have to give them absolute negative "positions".
Same question for probe in settings.

And one more in the change.ngc is a comment that the following is commented out because of sim. Do I have to delete the comma in the next two lines?

Thx in advance

Here my config.

And I have the impression that the Z goes near to the tool-probe ( into minus), but them starts probing in the wrong direction ( values count up towards plus)
How can i invert that.

Did you read this?

http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gui/gmoccapy.html#gmoccapy:tool-measurement

To go down use negative value!

Hi Norbert
Yes, and start to understand more and more what I read.
I'm already close what I see in your YouTube.

In the moment I set probe hight to z=0 as I see the block hight measured from the probe tripping point, as I can not set a negative value in setting...

Hi Norbert

Sorry if I coming back, think I did not clearly expressed my question.

Up Z is 0, down is - 130
My tool probe is - 90
My block should be -50

But I can not insert negative value in settings.
Or do I think wrong?

Thx in advance
Mike

Hallo Mike,

yes you are thinking the wrong way!


Probe hight is measured from the table to the top
Block height is also measured from the table and possitiv.

Are your tool probe lower than the table?

No but
My zero is 130 mm higher than tool table.

If I set a positive value for tool switch z wants to go higher then my max 0.

Hallo Mike,

I checked your posted INI File, You did enter a positive MAXPROBE value, but that need to be negative, so change that to be:
[TOOLSENSOR]
X = -210
Y =  -70
Z =  -75
MAXPROBE =  -100

Now enter in gmoccapy settings page
blockheight = 95
probeheight = 35
searchvel = 75
probevel = 10


Test with no tool, and press the tool switch with you fingers, report about the results and adapt the values for probeheight and blockheight to your needs.

Anytime a finger on estop!
