Hood,

Pretty much what I guessed. Just didn't know that the number of turns was known... Thought you'd start it and watch it till you think it was enough and then stop it Grin

But I am curious now, how do you generate the G-code from the info you entered in the DROs?

Yep, Hood. Simple indeed Grin ... Spindle which acts like a linear axis... afraid you lost me there.

Is the chuck on the left being called X and the stepper on the right being called A? Aren't they supposed to be rotating continuously, while the longitudinal axis feeds back and forth? How do you achieve the continuous rotation with a linear axis in Mach3?

OK. Then apparently I don't understand how it operates Grin

Hood,

How do you slave a spindle? In Mach or you just split the signal to the 2 drivers?

Hood,

There is a wizard that does just that. You touch off 3 points on a circumference of a circle (or 4 if you like) and it automatically calculates the centre. You probably knew it, but just in case Wink

And while on the topic I will add another method I use to centre a chuck on the mill's table. Hold a round bar in the mill, lower the head and chuck the other end of the bar in the chuck. Now it's perfectly centred, zero the DRO's and use clamp the chuck to the table. Fast and easy.

Hi Scott,

I don't see a functional difference between the two options you mentioned. Either way it addresses the two camps. Probably go with the easiest way to make. Two separate screens sounds easier to me...?

About the tool offset number, I only want the offset number to be shown, not the actual offset.

Scott,

I want the last 2 digits of the Txxyy word to be displayed as the offset number. The first 2 digits of is are already displayed as the tool number.

Sounds good Scott!

Hi Russ,

No. Was not meaning this. When you program a tool change in Turn, something like T0101, this will be tool #1 with offset #1 from the tool table. If you then program T0120, this will be the same tool #1, but with offset #20 from the tool table. Now it is desired to have a DRO both for the current tool number and the current offset number. That as well as the above mentioned LED to show if the offset is active. There is a DRO for the tool number but non for the tool offset.
