Can you tell me the parameters you used, or even better post a screen capture of the page. My guess is you have entered a parameter tomake the thread length less than the pitch, but Im only guessing

While in run mode, when toggling the "edit" button note pad ( or any other editor) does not come up.

However, it does rewind the program and start the program and the machine!

OK, I found that one, its fixed in the next release.

thanks

I have updated the demo on YouTube to the current screen. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiuQ9dKVzBM

Thanks for the advice, I will edit the DROs to be sure I have the Signed bit checked and make them a 4.3 format, at least where it matters- i doubt anyone makes a cut depth of 1000 mm Smiley

I wont be able to work on this for a couple days, I have grandkids coming fro the long weekend and they keep me busy.

Keep the feedback coming, thats how we are going to make this wizard more useful

I will admit I did a very quick build of the thread table- but the whole point is its a simple text file and I expect users to fill in the table with values they like.

I need some help on from the metric guys- I have most of the DROs set to a 2.3 format. I know 99 inches is Ok for US guys, but is 99 units OK in metric land? Before I go through all the DROs to make sure that negative numbers are allowed Id like to know this, so if I need to use a 3.3 format I can make the changes in one pass.

Afraid theres a problem on a few of the operations pages, format string is not allowing a neg value for X and Z on thread,  ID Chamfer, drill and bore pages.


I didnt even know you could do that. I just took a look and see how that happened. Ill fix it. Let me know if anyone finds additional DROs like that.

I loaded the Turn Wizard on my system.  When I tried to run the machine I get an message saying I can't run in demo mode.  Did I misread your post saying it would work but I couldn't save the file?  Thanks.
George

The opening screen will say its in Demo mode, but you can use it, just select one of the buttons, probably File to starrt

Note I have updated to V0.03, see the first topic in this thread

Cant seem to get the face to post in the file.

Damn, thats a real bug. When I removed the  #Expand stuff so this would be version independent I lost the actual code for doing the face. I dont see how I missed this in my testing, and I made several tests with face.

I have fixed the code, I will wait a few days to see if there are more bugs before I release a new version.

For now Facing operations dont work.

I can add the coolant and spindle direction to the tool page. I want to keep the tool page as it is, I see a tool change as a basic operation. It feels natural to associate things like feed rate, rotation direction, coolant to the tool. That will then apply to all following operations until you select a new tool.

I will get M3 and M7, M8 on the tool page for the next release.

Hi Ron, looks real nice.
Will you be adding different feeds and depths of cut for roughing and finish cuts ?

Thanks,
Russ

I want to keep the screens simple, so I didnt add rough and finish cuts. You could do that by just specifying 2 operations, the first to stop short of the final dimension, the second to be the finish cut.

However, I associated feed with the tool, so to change the feed you would need to do another tool operation.

I may have to re-think that. Ill listen to some more feedback and decide what to do.

What version of Mach should one be using with the wizard?
 RICH

I think it should work with just about any version. I originally used some of the new scripting features, like #Expand, but I took all that out just do I wouldnt be version dependent. It makes support a bit harder, but gets out of the version problem.
