Spanish / Re: Ayuda !!!! Problemas con G83
« on: September 12, 2013, 02:08:55 AM »
Damian,
We had the same problem.
Read this:
http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,23990.0.html
We never fixed it.
The only answer is to use custom drilling programs.

Regards
Dennis

Rufan,
We never found an answer to the G83 problem.
We have to work around the problem by using another machine.
The only answer I can think of is to wait for Mach4 or write your
drilling programme long hand.

Brett,
Yes that's it.
Whenever we use the G83 we can nearly always produce the bug that seems to swap the feed speed with the rapid approach speed.
We can make a video if that helps.

Brett.

Only the test file has a G83.

Test 2 was written out long hand to check that the machine would work normally and it does.

We have not managed to make a G83 file that will work without the bug.

Please see my last post where I tried an alternative version of Mach3.
As you will see the bug is only there on the first run.

Please let me know if I can send you anything else.

Dennis

We have tried Mach3 version 57 and left it on the machine at the moment.

Allowing for the fact that this is a random bug these are the results.

A. After start up of the Mach3 software the G83 programme misbehaves as before but only for the fist run of the programme.

After that it seems to behave properly until the Mach3 software is restarted when it seems to perform as line A.

So we can run the programme in air for the first run while it sorts itself out and then put tools in the spindle and put on a pair of brown corduroy trousers to run the job.

Thanks Hood.
We can eliminate that then.
I have zipped up my entire Mach3 folder and sent it with the troublesome programme to Brett.

We don't really understand  the concept of smoothstepper.
So we don't know if we have it, or if we are using it.
If we are using it, can we turn it off somewhere?

Thanks
