Opening folders and list of materials does not work

Once again i ran into a problem with Plasmac.
I set up the limits and homing for my zaxis but probing does not work.
It probes in the wrong direction. Homing works perfect but it probes upwards not down.
What could be wrong?

Well that is bizarre, probing always moves in a negative direction.

When you do Page Down and the Z axis move down does the DRO show the Z axis as having moved more negative.

I also can't simulate the problem of opening folders. I can double click any folder or use the up button to move around and open folders.

Can you tell me where in all those files the probing is done?

Thank you!

You should check your setup, it is not advisable to mess with PlasmaC since no one else has that issue.
Post the hal and ini files from your working config.

probably you are right.

I attached is my working config. I just did a test cut. Probing works with G38.2

I ownder if your axis direction is the opposite of what is expected by plasmac?
Plasmac assumes that Z0 is at the bottom of travel and that the positive direction moves the Z axis up. Eg if you z axis is 100mm long then Z100 is at top of travel. You just need to touchoff on the Z axis to achieve this. My Z axis is 86mm long so I go to top of travel and touch off at Z86. This is remembered by Linuxcnc and it won't need touching offagain.

Guys

I don't think this is actually how it has to be. My Z0 is at the top of my Z axis travel, but the Z axis positive direction is up. My home/limit switch is at about +.3". I remember quite a while back there was discussion about this subject and I thought that I needed to rework how my machine was setup, not so.

John is correct, Z0 can be towards the top or the bottom, all PlasmaC Z motion is relative.

The MAX_LIMIT and MIN_LIMIT for [AXIS_Z] and [JOINT_3] look a bit odd.

I will try to marry your config into a sim and give it a test.

For you Guys having a problem opening files in the Axis GUI the following entry in your INI file in the [DISPLAY] section should fix it:
CYCLE_TIME = 0.05

Your original INI file did show the behaviour you described.

Here is a sim that works correctly and was created by the PlasmaC Configurator using your INI file with the following modifications:

[TRAJ]
COORDINATES was XYZ, now XYYZ

[JOINT_0]
HOME_SEARCH_VEL was -50.00000, now 50.00000


[AXIS_Z]
MIN_LIMIT was -800000.0, now -80.0
MAX_LIMIT was 4000.0 to 40.0


[JOINT_3]
MIN_LIMIT was -800000.0, now -80.0
MAX_LIMIT was 4000.0, now 40.0
