See the new topic for V2.82. It should now work for both Mach and Tormach users
512  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / V2.82 ready for test, also for Tormach users on: December 09, 2008, 05:49:29 PM
I have fixed a few more problems and added code to test for Tormach users. This version should now work fine for alll Mach users. The only problem is Tormach users will not see a description in the tool table display, instead they will get the word "Unknown"

I have fixed the Preview code in Cut Rectangle to properly disply depth per pass.

I have fixed the label in Circular Pocket, now it goes in the direction requested and the miling type matches.

Let me know if there are any problems. I really want to hear form a Tormach user. The ares to watch are the Material handling on the first screen, editing operations on the main screen, and the tool table. Otherwise Tormach users are identical to regular Mach users.

I hate doing this, but I just changed v2.82

Troy, You are right, I found an error on the preview screen that was not setting the depth per pass correctly. I have fixed it, Ill put up a new version soon.

I see the circular pocket working correctly on CW vs CCW. Has anyone else tried this?

Tool change has a couple strange issues. The wizards are setup so you can build a complex part by adding individual operations. There is code to check if the tool has changed and only issues a tool change if needed. The problem occurs with when you use the same tool number as the last use of a wizard. Ive looked a fixing this but it gets very messy, and effect every screen. Ill see what I can do with it.

Im not sure how that can happen. I just went to my shop and downloaded the version from the web and it works fine. All I can guess is that your download or unzip got corrupted. Please try it again and let me know

I have fixed the Cut rectangle problems, including the preview code. This time I ran tests of each case and actually measured all the rectangles. I really think I have it right this time.

I also fixed the circular pocket routine- it was doing the wrong directions- if you requested CW it actually went CCW

Let me know of any errors.

Edited Dec 9 to remove V2.81. See new topic for V2.82

Yep, you are right. I have fixed it in V2.81 See new topic for it.

The big lathe only has a 5hp motor on the spindle, so that really limits our cuts. The tool is actually on 2 compound slides we stacked up. It only covers about 6" is either axis, but for railroad wheels thats all we need. A wheel has a rather complicated profile of tapers and filets, so the cnc really helps, doing them manually was a real pain.

Ive done a lathe that will turn 40" dia railroad wheels, and about 10 feet between centers. I also claim its the oldest lathe to be converted- built about 1892

Yes, I did put a 2.80 on the forum for test. Its in the topic reporting a bug in 2.79 rectangle. There are reports the code works OK,but I forgot to update the preview button code. I will be fixing that soon and will post a new version here.

You are right, I forgot to fix the preview code. One of the problems with the way VB works in Mach is that you cant share code, so the preview button is exactly the same code, without the spindle controls.

Ill fix that later today.

I dont understand the wacky comp move, maybe some mode you have set before it runs? Ill see if I can find anything, Im going to run a complete set of test cases later today.
