Hi Michael,

The values entered in those fields is the amount of time to be added to the standard pulse width (around 3uSec). So if you enter 5 there you will get an 8uSec pulse width. I think it is only true for the step pulse, the direction signal being just a change of state, but am not sure about this as some time ago someone was reporting a different behaviour (although with SmoothStepper) which was never confirmed by other users.

 If you need a wider pulse than that then use Sherline Mode (under Ports and Pins), which will give you around 20uSec pulse width.

I know what you mean, Rich Sad

Check what your increment step is set to. It may be set to a large value (e.g. 1mm) and your feedrate is set very slow so you're seeing it doing that large increment at a very slow feed.

If you program for the tool centre then you need to compensate for its radius.

I think your problem is in the X start position:

G0 x.12 y0.0

Change that to:

G0 x0 y0

And you should get a 1" hole with:

G3 I-.25 J0

Hi Wes,

Something I had forgotten to mention before I started this run of parts - would you consider adding a parts counter DRO? Should be fairly simple and you already have a macropump anyway so will only have to look at the Cycle button being activated and count it.

Another thing which may not be that simple is a total elapsed time DRO (from the moment Mach loads). It has to be zero-able. Together with the part counter it can be a very valuable tool for high volume runs.

Thanks, but aside from some critics I haven't done much... It's Wes who you wanted to address the compliment to Wink

Very interesting Tweakie. Thanks for showing.

Was it at the laser's max power or were you limited by the top feedrate of the machine? And how is it that the laser doesn't leave burnt edges?

Not that I am aware of, but often people have a stable setup and are just not willing to take the chance involved in upgrading to a new version (which makes sense to me).

By "recently", Hood was meaning the recent addition of DRO 245. Up until recently this DRO was not implemented.

In all screens I will be giving the option to set both the tool number and the offset. This will allow you to do whatever method you desire. If the offset is 0 it will be set the same as the tool. this should make everyone happy. Smiley

Wes,

As I previously said, just make sure the name of the tool is tied to the offset number (yy in Txxyy). I think it wouldn't affect the new tol numbering while it would be beneficial for the old one.
