I did a quick check on the ini file with the tool and it does have an issue with reloading Joint 1

John - i did get it to run from the pncconf wizard.  I must have made an error the first time around but it seems to be on track now.   If you would like i can test the tool once you are ready.

I do wish there was a way to jog x and x2 with out homing.  I know there is resistance to this but i can do it mach 3 and i can do it on my waterjet (with an override) and i find it helpful to move a machine with out homing.  as long as both joints are moving.

I thought there was a setting (tick Box) to ask if homing was required before moving.
There is in the Pncconfig.
 

I can see it would be handy when testing axis before you have a working machine. However, once a working machine is in place, i can't imagine not homing everything to ensure you have a correct 0 and square gantry before starting a job.

RNJFab thanks for all your help. i believe that setting does not work with a gantry machine, i will have to try it again to be sure. I do move my machines without homing. I will home before starting a job but if i load materials or doing maintenance. there are circumstances when i just need to jog machine short distance or to thee oposite end of the table and i do not want any other movement.

You could always home to the back left/right to make it easier to load a sheet. I always home to the front left as it's close to where i park when i shut the machine down, then i have buttons to send it to the back left to load a sheet.

I didn't think there would be much difference between an XXYZ machine or a XYYZ machine. still running on axis with 2 motors.

I can add no force homing, it was an oversight by me. Thanks for the report.

I didn't get a chance to look at the tool this morning busy diagnosing a faulty chicken door in Coop Uno.

I added the missing homing items and no force homing on the options page and uploaded a new deb. If you can test it that would be great.

I added a DS18B20 temperature probe to the Raspberry Pi and somehow pulled out the wire for the up relay. My doors use a gear motor with a spool and paracord to raise and lower the door. This way it can come down on top of a stubborn hen without hurting her.
