You would have had to be part of the great Mach3 flaming wars to appreciate that remark.

This question is good. :) It can start war of religions. :) But don't forget: the two languages complie to the same object code, which is .net! In fact, there's no differece at the end, just the input syntax.

Here are 2 macros with exactly same code. M20910 is in C#, M20912 is in VB. To run these macros you have to home the machine. These macros check the homing precision by rehoming the axes. If you run some stress test g-code and one of these macros, you can check if the homing went away.

I know this is an old thread, but I currently use m20912. However my machine has a Y1 and Y2. Is there a flavor of this macro that would report each steppers count separately?

It needs some testing. I don't have slaved axes, so I don't know how it works with them, but it's an interesting question. I'll be back in some days.

It certainly runs the macro through to completion. And it gives a readout for x y and z. I have tried to ascertain if the y-axis is reporting any kind of a compound number and it appears that the macro is only counting the y-axis steps. It seems to me it might be as simple as 'uncoupling' the Y and A(Y2) axis, execute the verification, and then recouple/reslave them again (this would induce some amount of racking- which in my case would cause the slightest amount of inaccuracy).

Of course there would need to be some safeguard against racking the carriage- which would most likely be case by case or machine specific.

I appreciate it greatly,

Very weird thread... seems like a lot is missing from it.

Anyway, no VB or any other basic, please... it belongs to the previous century and should remain there.

Adapting Camera - can you point me to another, more appropriate script/macro to achieve verify home/lost steps? I have received the solution to my lost steps on FB CNC for beginners group. But I'd still love to know a script to verify home for future use.
Thank you kindly.
