General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach 3 is hanging while loading file

Gerry,
I am using Mach 3.043.037 I think
and Mach Standard Mill latest release.
I chatted with Dave of CVI and he thought it was a mach issue.
Thanks
Dave

Thanks for running it. I doubted it was the code.
I am having a big issue with my smooth stepper and am in the process of doing a fresh OS install. I am running the machine overnight with MS memory tester running. So far no memory issue. HD is new and no other problems noted. It's a SMART drive so I will do some checking.
At least it's good to know it's a machine related issue.
Thank you.
Dave

I believe this is the same file as in the picture.
When it hangs its on line 110 I believe.
Thanks

Mach just sits there. I have not waited for hours to see if it ever finishes what it is doing.
The amusing part is I tried the file on another machine and the same thing happens. I am happy to share the file if any one want to try it out.
Thanks
Dave

I guess its not that. I have copied the file to the HD. I am running it from the HD. Most times it works. But not all the time.
Artisoft thinks its a computer OS issue.
Thanks for you suggestion.
Thanks
Dave

Hood,
I can do that.
Two questions.
1) I am using the Vcarve Pro Post. I think it is widely used. I will have ot change it.
2) I can load the same file many times. Most of the time it is fine. Every once in a while it hangs.
I don't see that would have anything to do with a G70. if it G70 would it not be happening all the time.?

Thanks for the reply.
I hope some others chime in.
Thanks
Dave

I posted this over at the Yahoo site and got no response.
I cant believe it only happens to me. If it does please give some suggestions on how to troubleshoot.
Dave at MSM suggested posting it here


When loading a file I get this

Its random but persistent.
Its a short file. About 75 lines of code. When in does not hang it takes a
second or so to calculate path.
any suggestions on how to troubleshoot?

It's 3.043.37
XP home
MSM 1.17
PC is Shuttle X50V2 1.66 Ghz Dual core Atom
Thanks
Dave

I am using the Tormach system that sets tools to a consistent height. It should be so simple and I am felling really dumb right now.
Thanks

Thanks Hood,
I think I have got an imperial config now. It only took two tries. :-) No change in operation of unit but the tool offsets are in easy to read numbers.

I still am having the problem that my sample code messes up in tool change. I am using the simple one that just stops spindle and pauses till you change tool and proceeds. I hope one of the experts can help me out. I think I am doing a very basic operation. Change from one tool to another.
Thanks
Dave
