Here is the Version 13 of the last post that you gave me, Hood.
I had to send it in and they updated it for me. Works great now.

Everything seems to be working okay in simulation. 2D sim that is. I still have a glitch in 3D sim, but they are working on that.

I'll let you know how the lathe runs.
I did do a compare on the two text files of the Posts. They only changed a few things, but those were important things. Smiley

Lets hold the phone, which is what I should have done before. They did leave me a voicemail yesterday.
I called them up and everything is okay now. Smiley
Maybe not with the posts, but I will post my results here.
I did decide to update to the latest version. There was a problem with the version 10, but I decided to eliminate that problem with the authentication process. Version 11 forward no longer uses a third party to authenticate the software. An email or phone call is all that is needed from V11 forward.
I'll let you guys know how it works out. Thanks a bunch, Hood.

Just regular old Mach 3 Turn with the Blue screen set. It is an Lset. The only thing that has changed was this PP recently from the last PP that you gave me.
No I did not modify it in Notepad like I should have, but used the PP Utility provided by Dolphin.

That may be where I messed up.

On a side note, Dolphin has not answered my quote request. Each time you install a Demo, it over wrote my original version 10 or the last Demo. Tried re installing V10 and now my activation code is too old and it will not let me verify the installation unless I contact Dolphin and beg them for a reset.
Well, if they aren't interested in selling me a new version, how long will it take for them to do something with software they sold 7 years ago?
I understand the need for such security, but why does new Demo software over write my old verified software.
All these issues will help me determine what I end up getting. Wink

Thanks Hood.

It is set for auto tool change, which it does.


Here are the macro contents.
m6start =

 tool = GetSelectedTool()
  SetCurrentTool( tool )


m6end =

REM nothing here in lathe

Thanks, Hood. I don't have an M05 there. Here is that section of the post.

:SELCTL = {
      set $CYCLETIME = $CYCLETIME + 0.5 ; 30 seconds for a tool change
         #N (M09_) EOB
              #N "G0"" "  $XTLOAD2:XAXIS EOB
         #N (G49_) EOB
         #N " ( " $JOBTEXT " )" EOB
         #N (M06_) $TOOLNO:TOOL  $TLCNO:TLC EOB
      }

Thanks, Hood.
I have modified posts for mill before, but there seems to be more canned cycles or subroutines in turn that I am not familiar with.

Also it seems I was able to update the PP file by adding that it was version 11. Wink. Surely it can't be that simple.

Old thread I know.
I am trying to learn how to modify my posts in Dolphin Cam for Turn.

One thing I need to do is to keep the spindle running during tool changes. It is gang tooling on there and someone might think the program is over. I want to eliminate that threat. There is no need to stop it until the program ends. I know Hood has helped me tremendously earlier in this thread.
I would like to do it myself. I am considering an updated version of Dcam and it says my older posts the Hood modified will not work without some modification to update it.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Here is the full tool change code where the tool number is 11. Most of you guys know this.
T11 M06 G43 H11

Here is the video I promised as well. All setting are very conservative.
