General Mach Discussion / Re: Moves in x direction before step down
« on: April 02, 2019, 03:33:50 PM »
Thank you very much reult. But it was none of these. I couldn't believe it..it was a corrupted Solidcam template causing all the problems!!! So please everyone.. if you are getting errors and using Solidcam, check your templates for errors!! I thought there was a ghost in the machine..but it wasn't Casper the Friendly Ghost..it was Frustration, the Bad template!

Here is one of the gcodes.

I may do that. But, why would all Gcodes do this now? I did not change anything on any of them. Could I have accidentally changed  something in Mach 3, by accidentally hitting a button on the keyboard or something like that? If so, what could it possibly be?

General Mach Discussion / Moves in x direction before step down
« on: March 29, 2019, 03:27:52 PM »
Yesterday all my finished projects involving a step down started moving a small distance in the x direction before each step down. For example, if I am cutting a circle on the CNC machine that is cutting 1 inch deep with four .25 step downs, it will cut the first revolution of circle cut correctly, but it and hits the point to drop the Z level down .25, it first moves over slightly in the x direction before beginning the Z level drop. What could be causing this? It is now affecting all my Gcodes that were working correctly until yesterday.

Thanks Overloaded. I got it worked out! Adding P and any number worked like a charm. Thanks once again everyone!!

There are an additional 100 fixtures, G54.1 Pxx
 So in the gcode, I should add .1 P1  to G54 if I want to add an additional fixture? Then if I want another additional fixture, I could gcode it like this..G54.1 P2 and so on? In other words, I simply add .1 to G54 and any number up to 100 after P?

Thanks for the replies. yes, overloaded, I believe that is the answer I need. But I am a bit confused..what do you mean by "To access any of the 254 work offsets (1 - 254) program G59 P~ where the P word gives the required offset number." ? What do you mean by program the G59p?

General Mach Discussion / additional offsets/fixtures

I am trying to add additional offsets/fixtures. As it is there are only 6 available..G54 to G59. How do I add additional offsets/fixtures?

I tried the Gcode with the original G00 lines in place, removed the goo from 2 lines, then replaced it with a new line, as Tweakie instructed me eons ago, it seems. Now it is working nicely. I believe I had a corrupt Gcode o I removed the wrong G00. Whichever one, I sOlved the problem thanks to Ger. If the file wasn't requested I would never have noticed the difference in the files. Cheers to you Ger!

I compared both codes and one is much larger than the other. That is very strange.  And thanks ger, buy I have tried changing it to incremental and back again.
