First, please confirm exactly which wizard you are using. Is it part of the Newfangled Suite, or the new Mill Wizard, or one of the unsupported wizards that come with mach3? Since they are all very different it is hard to answer a question without knowing which one we are talking about.

The problem is your corner radius makes the end of the rectangle to be exactly round. The way it generates code there must be at least a short straight segment between the corners. Make the corner R just 1 thou less and it will work, with a 1 thou straight segment between them. I bet you cant see the straight segment.

The first reply to this topic holds the latest version s a .zip file

I have not made any changes in some time, but I nearly have my lathe running again after tearing it apart to add an Ethernet smoothstepper. I have a number of ideas for improvement that I hope to work on soon. I am also looking at converting this to a mach4 lua wizard, which is why I need the ESS.

The included thread table is just a short sample. You are expected to edit the table- a simple text file- to contain the threads you use. Both metric and english should work. There is a help file with details.

See if the Keyway slot does a better job for you. It does have fully rounded ends, and it will do a .500 wide with a .250 tool. It uses a ramp in start on a straight line down the center of the slot.

Ill add it to my list, seems like good ideas.
157  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Mill Wizard / Re: Rectangular pocket vs cutter diameter on: February 21, 2014, 03:47:08 PM
Actually the issue is the circular ramp in which we set to be a ramp of radius equal to tool diameter. I am not really sure how we arrived at that number, but Brian picked it and it works cleanly. I suppose the code could check to see if a plunge cut is requested then allow the smaaller pocket.
158  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Mill Wizard / Re: Rectangular pocket vs cutter diameter on: February 20, 2014, 03:24:19 PM
No, it is that way by design. You cannot cut a clean pocket if the tool is exactly twice the pocket, At least not with the toolpath I use.

Either ask for a .501 pocket, or tell it the mill is .249

Ok, that did it. Latest versions of mach and pokeys, my panel works fine now.

Thanks for all the help.

i believe I do not have the correct plugin for mach. This is an old pokey55- ser no 10804. If I load the 56u files I can communicate with the device via the pokey ap. I have cleared the config and re-loaded with an import. Using the pokeys ap everything seems normal, but I cannot get it to work under mach.
