7i96 configuration Tool and Gantry XYZ Machines

i have used the 7i96 Config Tool and did get a machine running while connect to the board but not to stepper just yet. also i can movement on xy and z but not the forth axis.  I have a gantry machine XXYZ and i have searched high and low for examples of this configuration but nothing comes close to the ini or hal files that are generated by the tool.  I see in the example that the gantry is yy or xx but not xu or yu as i would expect.  Yet if i try to remove a reference to the u axis linuxcnc fails.  Attached are my ini and hal files.

Hey SSIRon,

I'm no expert, they will be around shortly.

I found when I set up my machine it created a y & y1 axis for the gantry. these were then linked in the ini file.

I have attached a example of it below. This was all created when setting up the machine in the config. I made sure I put a sticker on each axis motor so I knew when adjusting limits which motor I was adjusting. Its amazing how quickly you can get lost in the CNC maze.

I would re-do the config and set up your machine with a y & y1 or a x & x1.

Hey,

You have 2 x axis. You need to set one as a 'x' axis and the other as an 'x1' axis.

Try again, should look like this.

ok i am using the 7i96 config tool it is different than what you are showing there. I tried to manually change the ini. adding x1 in two locations. LInuxcnc ran but it disconnected from the animation when i jog the axis and it renamed them joints 0123 instead of axis xyz

Delete the whole X1 section.
The rest looks ok.
