DIY CNC Router Table Machines > Mach3 Slave Axis problem

2014-7-31  Re: Mach3 Slave Axis problem. If you only have one switch, Mach3 won't square the gantry. If the two sides are moving different amounts, then make sure the homing speed for both axis is the same. If they are the same, and it's going out of square while homing, then yes, two switches should help. And yes, with two switches,, use RefCombination.
