If you have version of the MachStdMill that supports Santa Cruz ATC, then
you need to edit/Check your m6Start.m1s and M6End.m1s macros.
I think you just have to UNREM some lines of those macros.

Santa Cruz Engineering  should supply you the macros, if there are not already in your MACH3 profile.

Quite easily done.

Perhaps copy and print out those macros and others will be able to help you.

You just need to install MSM version 2.3.12 or later
from MSM release note.
First release with Santa Cruz Engineering ATC support.
7.7 V2.3.13 (Beta)
Added hook support for a user M6PostATLO2 script.
This is a new script hook in addition to the M6PreATLO script, same conventions, placement in the profile directory etc..
M6PostATLO2 is called immediately after the ATLO tool measurement is completed but not until the spindle has returned to the TCP.
7.8 V2.3.14 (Production Release)
Released user M6PostATLO2 script support.

We usually want sharp 90deg corners, that is why >89 is a useful setting.
You may try other values to suit your other preference.

Unless others know what OEM screen you are using, it might be hard to help.
If however your are using the STD screen e.g. 1024
Go to Operator | edit VB Script editor |
and open M6start.m1s
copy the code and paste on this forum
Other should be able to probably help you edit the file yourself.
It is NOT so hard..

Good day folks!

New to the forums, but I've been using mach3 here and there over the years.

I recently converted a 20 year old multicam to mach3(or at least my technician did :p ).  It is running well, but I'm having a problem in the corners.

I'll be attaching photos.  Basically it seemed like this was only happening on sharp corners, but now it seems like curved corners as well.  The CNC seems to sort of over cut or skip the turn.  I do not lose position, but just not have an accurate corner. 

I recently uped the speed(IPM) of my machine, and it is running well.  But I occasionally have these missed corners.

I am running at 25k Hz, 270ipm, 5hp spindle.  I have the look ahead set to 200 right now, but I had this also at 120 lines ahead.  I've played with the acceleration/deceleration, and have it set right now at 3.

Latest version of mach3 installed.  Running through a printer port.

In the photo, you can see how the two small corners are different.  They should be the same and have a .25" radius.

And in pockets, it sometimes leaves small pieces.

Thank you, I hope I didn't write to much.


Try this setting in General Config
(see attached)

I thought with ESS you need to hold down the shift-key to be about to jog properly
